  zydeco: Some of the kibitzers made fun of Ivkov for 21....Kh8. Najdorf commented: "I do not understand how someone in chess can say 'pass.'" Ivkov is testy about it - and any other move would give white opportunities. He says that 21....Kh8 is really a trap into which Petrosian promptly falls. 22.Na4 weakens white's control over e4 and d5; and, after move 23, black is threatening both 24....Nxe4 and 24.....Nxd5. So Petrosian takes a draw by repetition.
