|May-22-03|| ||pks: it looks like blacks 6th move c4?! should of been replaced with nf6 and in the game after white traded off blacks d5 pawn c4 was weak and ready to fall! |
|Jan-01-04|| ||skakmiv: didn't 10..Bxf3 win a pawn? |
|Jan-01-04|| ||refutor: black won a pawn regardless without giving up his light square bishop |
|Sep-27-04|| ||ArturoRivera: Wow!, i think petrosian is really elegant, very sutile. |
|Nov-08-05|| ||mysticmabus: 12.Nxf5???, 12. Nd6+! forcing black to resign.|

I love the ending 22 ... ♘xg2? 23 ♖d6!, threatening both 24 ♖x♕ and the <Arabian mate> 24 ♘f6+ and 25 ♕xh7# by <BLOCKING> the 6th rank.
|Dec-10-06|| ||notyetagm: What a great <ZWISCHENZUG> (in-between move) by Petrosian, 22 ... ♘x♗g2? 23 ♖d6!.|

Pretty amazing that the great tactician Petrosian missed this elegant <X-RAY> shot 12 ♘e4-d6+!:

The White d1-queen now defends the White d6-knight -through- the Black d4-queen (<X-RAY>), after Black has mistakenly opened the d-file for the White d1-queen by capturing the White d4-pawn (11 ... ♕xd4?) which previously had blocked the White queen's line to d6.

|May-13-12|| ||srag: I think this is the game about which Vasiliev ("Tigran Petrosian his life and games", page 19) quotes Petrosian's chess diary:"I beat my nearest rival, Sorokin, in sharp (not typical for me) style".|
