Mikhail Botvinnik

Three years after winning the world championship, Mikhail Botvinnik had to defend his title against the challenge of David Bronstein. All 24 games of this historic World Championship match are presented here with in depth annotations by Botvinnik, Sveshnikov, Lilienthal, Levenfish and Romanovsky. Also included are Botvinnik's opening preparation, an assessment of Bronstein's play and summary of the match.

The match represented a clash of styles and of generations and was Botvinnik's first serious chess since he had won the world title three years previously. Though out of practice and largely outplayed by his brilliant young opponent, Botvinnik nevertheless demonstrated his fighting qualities, levelling the scores in the penultimate game and thereby retaining his title. The bitter rivalry between the two players ensured a hard fought clash.

Published 2004, softback, 124 pages.
