Apr-17-05  who: The only example (at least in the Chessgames.com database) of a Botvinnik D14 fizzeling into a draw.
Apr-17-05  Eopithecus: 1951 Flohr vs Botvinnik is an 81 move draw.
Apr-17-05  who: Yes, but Botvinnik was black there. This seems like the opening to play if you want a draw as white.
Apr-30-12  ughaibu: It was the last round and a draw ensured Botvinnik of clear first in the tournament.

As Botvinnik wrote in his collection <Best Games 1947-70>, annotating another game, he was quite content to take a quick draw in this last-round encounter due to his tournament position.
