Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik – hundredth anniversary

Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik – hundredth anniversary
Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik was born on August 17, 1911, and died in 1995, at the age of 84. He was the first world-class player to develop within the Soviet Union, winning the World Championship three times, while working as an electrical engineer, and in fact earning a PhD. The latter part of his life was devoted to his chess school for young talents – and to chess programming.
