Jul-09-05  ThunderStorm: Opponent's king stuck and one more move a grand checkmate...notable game by Petrosian again!
Jul-14-05  Ernest van der Sar: I really can't understand why some here tend to stuff feathers up the often famous or infamous grandmaster's a*** after a great mistake by the opponent...If Parma would have been more carefull, he might have caught a draw. I wouldn't dare calling a draw a notable game for Petrosian, specially not against Parma, no matter which skills this GM? might possess...
Jul-14-05  mormonchess: It's still a nice game by Petrosian. He certainly deserves respect, being the first World Champion to successfully defend his title since Steinitz.
Sep-09-05  ThunderStorm: Yes Petrosian still deserves some respect for the games he played for their positional play

  Honza Cervenka: <He certainly deserves respect, being the first World Champion to successfully defend his title since Steinitz.> Lasker, Alekhine and Botvinnik defended threir title successfully too.
May-05-14  Bartacus: The position after White's 23rd has been annotated. Black missed winning a pawn with 23...Nxg3+! 24 hg3 Qh6+, picking up the White rook on c1.
May-05-14  ewan14: He deserves respect for being a brilliant player

( but not cheating )

per Benko 1962
