John Littlewood by Offramp
On 21 Sep, 22:22, " wrote: Littlewood-Botvinnik, Hastings 1961/2 is game 93 annotated by GM Larry Evans, who notes: "White launches a blitz attack against his renowned opponent which narrowly fails due to a very fine saving clause. As Botvinnik remarked at the time, it seemed that White had a 50-50 chance of success." I think MB was being polite.

What better way to help her demonstrate her innocence of any wrongdoing with Gregory and establish that Gregory was doing everything alleged all on his lonesome. Logic dictates that Mr. Leigh will applaud the action of USCF...
