Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-25-06  Tamerlan: Genrikh Kasparian made a mistake by playing a3 at 13th move, as a result two white bishops were splitted and this is why he lost to Botvinnik in the endgame.
Jul-07-07  fictionist: I think, more importantly, it was Kasparian's doubled and isolated kingside pawns that did him in. As Botvinnik's rook easily mopped them up.
Dec-18-18  PJs Studio: Textbook ending play by a great endgame master.
