Jun-26-09  SimonWebbsTiger: or maybe Petrosian's powerful pinning piece poleaxed Parma's position?

Mar-01-13  olpa: I've looked in two books, and both said that "24.exd5 is impossible due to 24...e4", but I could not understand what black gets with it. Finally, I run an engine to find that the threat is Qxh2#.

  perfidious: < SimonWebbsTiger: or maybe Petrosian's powerful pinning piece poleaxed Parma's position?>

After 'poleaxed', I should possibly add 'putrid, passive position'.

This is a fine example of a terminal pin-Parma never breaks free of the coils set out by the wily Iron Tigran.
