I was analyzed this game, but sadly couldn't find anything to learn from it. Did I miss something, or is this just a simple game as it appears to be?

  • Thats it! Thanks. – bretlee Jun 17 '20 at 5:07
  • What is the source of this game ? It seems to be pretty decent level, so your analysis should revel several interesting points. – Evargalo Jun 17 '20 at 10:17
  • It was some botvinnik game,so i thought why i was not finding any good points here.. – bretlee Jun 17 '20 at 12:56

Even simple games are full of possibilities. If you want to learn, you have to investigate these possibilities. Ideally without an engine.

Some lines of investigation:

What happens after 23.Bxh7 and Rxd7?

What about 23.b4 cb 24.Bxh7?

How does 26.Rd3 with the idea of Rg3 pan out?

How does 31.Qxc7 Rxc7 32.Rd8+ differ from the game?

    Good points. If one is going to analyse 23.b4!? cb 24.Bh7, they should also spend some time on 23.b4 Kh8!? – Evargalo Jun 17 '20 at 10:19
