Aug-19-07  laskereshevsky: When in a 1970's television interview broadcasted by the sarajevo channel, the well-know Jugoslavian chess-journalist Dimitrij bielica asked BOBBY FISCHER for wich one BOTVINNIK's game shall he vote for, the former american citizen answered the above game, and another one...

<"for that he played versus Akshanov in the 1931's Sovietic Championship Semifinal...An exceptional game!...">

For the statistic, the other mentioned game was this one:

Botvinnik vs K Kholodkevich, 1927
