Botvinnik in World Championship 1948


Mikhail Botvinnik, World Champion on three occasions (1948-57, 1958-60 and 1961-63) and widely regarded as the most influential chess contributor of the 20th century, played his finest tournament in the World Championship of 1948 (held in The Hague, Netherlands and Moscow, Russia). According to Jeff Sonas' calculations, he scored 14/20 against players of average rating 2729, giving him a performance rating of 2850.

To purchase products, I recommend Wholesale Chess. They provide the highest quality chess products at the lowest prices (especially for US and Canadian players). They even offer to match prices with other chess websites! Even though I live overseas, this is where I choose to purchase chess goods.

For chess opening training and repertoire maintenance, I highly recommend the software that I personally use, Chess Openings Wizard. This software was approved by Grandmaster Peter Svidler (FIDE rating 2744 as of January 2010) many years ago.
