Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-03-09  Knight13: White resigned because he can't stop 35...Re6-h6.
Feb-21-12  backrank: In this game there happens nothing at all, except that Black prevents any activity of White ... without having committed any errors, White finds himself in a totally lost position. 'The final position deserves a diagram', Botvinnik himself states, quite laconically (in '100 selected games'). Is Chess really that easy? Obviously it is ... if you're Botvinnik :)
