|Feb-21-03|| ||refutor: this game is an excellent example of petrosian showing how to exploit the pin and back rank weakness |
|Feb-21-03|| ||drunknight II: well then maybe you can explain what is going on on move 32. |
|Feb-21-03|| ||refutor: not really sure what you're asking? petrosian is taking advantage of the pin on the c4 knight...it looks good enough to me |
|Feb-21-03|| ||drunknight II: I dont see what Petrosian did to force szabo to lose material during this exchange. WHy not 31 Rxe5? |
what was the brilliant move that forced this?
|Feb-21-03|| ||refutor: 31.Rxe5 Rxc4 32.Rxc4 Qxc4 with 33.Qd1 Qxa4 and 33.Qxc4 Rxc4 winnng a piece |
|Feb-21-03|| ||drunknight II: in your line, not 33 Qd1 but 33 Rc5 |
|Feb-21-03|| ||refutor: 33. ... Rxc5 |
|Feb-21-03|| ||drunknight II: hmm okay maybe white will grab the a6 pawn at the end of the combo and we are left with a N vs a passed pawn. hmm, I will get back later, thanks. |
|Feb-21-03|| ||refutor: druken, i think you may have the board set up wrong...after 33. ... Rxc5 black is up a whole lot more than a knight for the passed pawn. 34. Nxc5 is not possible due to 34. ... Qxe2. That leaves 34.Qxc4 Rxc4 and something like 35.h3 is forced due to threats of mate so 35. ... Rxa4 and black has a rook and a knight and a pawn after ... Rxa6 for his troubles. |
|Feb-21-03|| ||drunknight II: Yeah I am going too fast, I'll have to think about this later. |
|Mar-08-03|| ||Rookpawn: Starting with this game, Petrosian won three games in a row, an exceptional showing in a tournament as strong as Zurich 1953. |
|Aug-30-06|| ||Egghead: I think 32. ... Qxc4 wins a piece, doesn't it? E.g. 33.Rxc4 Rb1+ 34.Qf1 Rxf1+ 35.Kxf1 Rxc4.|
|Aug-30-06|| ||euripides: <egg> I think you're right; Petrosian's line also won a piece. |
This game reminds me of O Bernstein vs Capablanca, 1914, where Capablanca shows another way to poison the advanced member of the hanging pawn duo.
|May-29-07|| ||notyetagm: Does anyone know if this game is in Keene's <Petrosian Versus The Elite>? Or any other Petrosian game collection?|
