Mikhail Botvinnik, the sixth world champion, died May 5 in Moscow at the age of 83. Botvinnik was the first grandmaster from the Soviet Union, the first Soviet world champion, and the last world champion to practice another profession. A master at 16 and a dedicated Communist even earlier, Botvinnik was the only player allowed to represent Stalinist society in international chess in the 1930s.

He talked about them. He built them. And he exploded them.
