    Party, biography, photos, statistics. Mikhail Botvinnik (1911 - 1995) - man-era! He was born under the last Russian emperor Nicholas II, and died under the first president of Russia, Boris Yeltsin. He received instructions from the second world champion Emanuel Lasker and gave lessons to the fourteenth champion Vladimir Kramnik himself. While studying at school, he did not know the slide rule, and at a respectable age he played chess with a computer. Botvinnik was not yet 25 years old when he became one of the living symbols of a great power and remained it for the next 60 years. His remarkably solid nature was mixed up with a mixture of communist education, the Spartan regime and an innate sense of intelligence. He was one in two persons - the Champion and the Scientist. Doctor of chess and grandmaster of electrical engineering. The main advantages of Botvinnik - iron will, a scientific approach, a clear vision of the goal. Botvinnik accumulated the best features of the Soviet chess school. And at the same time, this school embodied many of the priorities it proclaimed. Botvinnik devoted thirty years of his life to the creation of an “artificial intelligence” - a chess program, not only a “master playing by virtue”, but also “thinking like him.” "Pioneer" was his pride, and his pain, and his "blue bird". Botvinnik's multivolume legacy is a classic of world chess, his life is an example of disinterested service to chess art.
