Mar-31-05  Pawsome: Geller, the bane of world Champs, has a plus score against Petrosian, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Fischer and split his games with Tal.
Jul-03-05  MrSifter: Petrosian out-maneuvered?

  Honza Cervenka: Since move 16 till move 28 Petrosian made four moves with his King (Ke1xe2-f2-g2-h2) without being in check. White's opening play seems to be quite dubious here.
Jul-31-08  M.D. Wilson: Geller gives Petrosian a taste of his own medicine.
Oct-28-08  M.D. Wilson: Indeed.
Sep-09-09  ewan14: Why did Petrosian play 6 d5 ?
Feb-19-10  falso contacto: normal standard is not that elegant as a name.
maybe a more descriptive one can help.
and then, historical proof.
May-17-18  Toribio3: Petrosian played passive. This is the reason why he lost this game!

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Petrosian earned a handsome living vs. the King's Indian Defense--unless Geller played Black. According to the CG database, Geller never lost, and won twice.
