  mormonchess: Yes, very impressive pawn play by Mr. Petrosian.

He makes it look like child's play.

  ketchuplover: being up a piece doesn't hurt either :)
Apr-12-07  Brown: <ketchuplover:> a piece for two pawns, and the reason why he's up that is because of his <impressive pawn play> as stated by <mormonchess>.
