[Event "Leningrad"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Botvinnik"] [Black "Budo"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "B13"] [Opening "Caro-Kann: Panov-Botvinnik Attack"] 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e6 {This position, known as the Panov Attack, can arise out of a number of opening strategies.} 6. Nf3 Be7 7. Bg5 dxc4 8. Bxc4 {Now the game has transposed into the Queen's Gambit Accepted. White has an isolated pawn but also enjoys superior development.} 8... O-O 9. O-O Nbd7 10. Qe2 Nb6 11. Bb3 Bd7 {This position had already been seen in a World Championship game between Lasker and Capablanca, in 1921.} 12. Rad1 Bc6 13. Ne5 Bd5 {Black has invested a lot of time in this bishop.} 14. Bc2 Nfd7 {Black senses the approaching storm, and tries to reduce the attacking force via exchanges.} 15. Bf4 Nxe5 16. dxe5 Bg5 17. Qh5 h6 18. Bg3 Qc7 19. h4 Bd8 {19...g6 20.Bxg6 fxg6 21.Qxg6+ Qg7 22.Qxg7+ Kxg7 23.hxg5 hxg5 24.a4 White has an extra pawn.} 20. Rd4 Qc5 21. Rg4 f5 { 21...Kh8 22.Bf4 Be7 23.Bxh6 gxh6 24.Qxh6+} 22. exf6 Rxf6 23. Be5 Bc6 { The stage is set for the finish. If the bishop were not at e5, then White could capture Black's queen. With that hint, find the finish! If you have problems, play it out against Gambit.} 24. Rxg7+ { Black resigned because if the rook is captured, then the queen is lost.} 24... Kxg7 {24...Kh8 25.Rf7 Kg8 26.Rxf6 Bxf6 27.Qg6+} 25. Bxf6+ { A discovered attack wins the queen.} 25... Bxf6 26. Qxc5 1-0
