Botvinnik, Mikhail World Champions People Chess

Born in 1911, Botvinnik was a scientific technician of chess, seeking to play in the most positionally solid manner. He worked very hard in his chess studies and thus was proficient in all areas of the game, including the psychology of creating positions that his opponents were uncomfortable in. He played one of the most famous winning combinations in chess history against Capablanca, and for decades he let people believe he had calculated it to its conclusion during the game. But, later in life he admitted that he had been unsure during the game whether the combination was good for better than a draw.
