The position is from a game of Botvinnik.
Could you (your engines) find the winning continuation (and there is only one, I think)?

I think this position is very nice concerning strategy understanding.

Here the whole game:

[Event "Russia"]
[Site "Tournament, Moscow"]
[Date "1943.??.??"]
[White "Ljublinsky Victor (RUS)"]
[Black "Botvinnik M"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "C77/05"]
[MLNrOfMoves "53"]
[MLFlags "000000"]

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. Bxc6 bxc6 6. Nc3 d6 7. d4 Nd7 8.
dxe5 dxe5 9. O-O Bd6 10. Ne2 O-O 11. Ng3 Rb8 12. b3 Re8 13. Be3 g6 14. c3 a5 15.
Qc2 Qe7 16. Rfd1 Nc5 17. Ne1 Ne6 18. Nd3 Nf4 19. f3 Ba6 20. c4 c5 21. Qd2 Nxd3
22. Qxd3 Red8 23. Ne2 c6 24. Nc3 Bc7 25. Qc2 Rd4 26. Ne2 Bc8 27. Nxd4 cxd4 28.
Bf2 c5 29. Rf1 f5 30. Bg3 Bd7 31. Rad1 f4 32. Bf2 g5 33. g4 fxg3 34. Bxg3 Bh3
35. Rf2 h5 36. Rfd2 h4 37. Bf2 Rf8 38. Rd3 Rf4 39. Kh1 Kh7 40. Rg1 Bd8 41. Qe2
Qf7 42. Qd1 Qh5 43. Be3 Qxf3+ 44. Qxf3 Rxf3 45. Bxg5 Rxd3 46. Bxd8 Re3 47. Bb6
Rxe4 48. Bxc5 Re2 49. Rd1 Bg4 50. h3 Bxh3 51. b4 Bf5 52. Bd6 d3 53. bxa5 h3 0-1


I would appreciate engine analysis, even if some engines are unable to find the move.

Best, Lyudmil
