|Feb-24-04|| ||Whitehat1963: This isn't the future world champion is it? |
|Feb-24-04|| ||slapwa: I think so: from time to time 15. Re4 becomes haut chic, and anyone can lose to Black's stunning 25th. |
|Feb-24-04|| ||drukenknight: gee whiz that's shocking, what happens if 26 fxe4? the pawn queens? |
|Feb-24-04|| ||Calculoso: If 26. fxe4 h3 and there is no way to stop black from queening. Knight interposition is useless. |
|Sep-13-05|| ||blingice: If white didn't go 41. Kg2 black has an unstoppable two move mate: 41....Rg8 42.Kh3..Rf3#|
|Sep-13-05|| ||who: 41.Ra2 works to stop mate as well, though both lose the knight|
|Aug-23-06|| ||sfm: Yes, 25.-,gxh4! Lovely! The white pawn at f4 remains, thereby boxing in White's dark-squared bishop that never manages to participate before its death in move 39.|
|Mar-24-09|| ||Thanatos13: Before this, he only lost to khomlov, Petrosian is a great defensive player. I'm guessing Petrosian has greatly underestimated his opponent and played 15. Re4 to take the opponent's queen. After move 17, everything spiraled out of control and he lost. looking twice at it, I see why he moved the way he did. Averbakh is really strong to have beaten Petrosian.|
|Apr-29-11|| ||FSR: What the . . . ? Young Petrosian playing 1.e4, and then allowing the Marshall, and accepting the gambit pawn? Petrosian playing a defensive exchange sacrifice, but it doesn't work? Will wonders never cease.|
|Nov-15-13|| ||naresb: 19.Qxe5 could have been a better play, things could have turned in white's favour.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||WoodPushkin: Greetings:
26.fxe5 was Petrosian's final chance.
While the game is close to mathematically losing for White it requires depth=29 engine first moves to play correctly.
This is complicated endgame w/o queen play at its finest. Lots of ways to go wrong. Still it's very difficult for white to make a draw w/o an inaccurate move by Black.
|May-11-14|| ||naresb: If Black was in some sort of impulse to attack White's King, we could have seen some interplay this way:--
19. QxBe5; Ng4
20. QxBf5; Qh2+
21. f1; Re8
22. Qxg5+; Kh8
23. Nf3 and the game set to get interesting.
|Jun-07-14|| ||ralph46: <naresh> your right lol 19Qxe5 would have saved at least 20 moves after ..rae8 white could have resigned he either loses queen or gets mated|
