  suenteus po 147: I notice a lot of Botvinnik games played while he was world champion are designated as "Training." Didn't he play in tournaments when he was world champion?
Nov-12-08  seagull1756: 'Botvinnik is of the opinion that frequent appearances in tournaments are not so essential. Of course, the methods of working during a preparation period are a matter of taste for every player. At the same time, modern chess has now reached such a high level that knowledge and ability alone are insufficient. Every game demands an enormous output of nervous energy, and therefore regular (more or less frequent) participation in competitions is necessary for a player to keep in form.' (from "The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal")
