Capablanca - Botvinnik



1.Qb5+ g5 2.Qe2+ Kh4 3.Kh1 h5 4.Kg1 White can only wait to see what Black will do. 4. ... g4 5.hxg4 hxg4 6.Kh1 Qe5! Black centralizes his queen

7.g3+ Kg5 Botvinnik wrote about this position: "After 8.Kh2 Qc3 White is unable to find a draw; in the end the black king penetrates to d3 or f3". He gives just one line: 9.Qb5+ Kf6 10.Qb6+ Kf5 11.Qb5+ Ke4 12.Qb7+ Kd3 13.Qd5+ Qd4 14.Qb5+ Kd2 15.Qa5+ Kc1 and the rest is clear.
