  PivotalAnorak: 57.Rxa6! If 57...Rxc3 then 58.Ra7+ Kg8 59.Ra8+ Kf7 60.R2a7+ Kf6 61.Rf8#
Dec-29-07  Le Mulet: Yes, this is the variant that Bronstein gives in the book of the tournament.That's why Stahlberg did not play 57...Rc3?. Very good game of Petrosian, in positional style.
Mar-22-11  Rick360: Looks to this club level player like Petrosian's positional brawn was just too much for Stahlberg. By the late middlegame, Black was on his heels, so to speak.

  Sem: When you play the moves at max speed, you see Petrosian moving forward, slowly but surely.
