  JoeHolmok: I would have liked to see this one played out...
Sep-22-12  RookFile: If I remember this right, Bisguier pointed out after the game that he could have played an earlier f3 (for example 15. f3 instead of 15. Nxc6) and had a significant positional advantage.
Feb-04-16  Howard: This game was commented on in Chess Life when Petrosian died, but I don't recall what was said.
Sep-03-17  Zugzwangovich: <Howard> In that article Bisguier said, "During the post-mortem, I pointed out the simple 15. P-B3, a move that would have crushed me positionally. Tigran nodded sadly. Why, I asked (with a finger on the Knight and a shrug--he still knew little English), did he go in for the uncharacteristic complications? By way of explanation, he pointed to Geller, Stein, Fischer, and the others watching the game. It was a touching confession. The future world champion had not wanted to be thought a coward."

  OhioChessFan: FWIW, 21. Bb5 had to be better, keeping the Bishop on the 8th rank and stopping communication between the Rooks, or else giving up the Bishop pair which is about the only thing Black has going for him. And I am with <JoeH> in wondering why it wasn't played out. I don't see how Black survives the material disadvantage.
