Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-05  ThunderStorm: "This is a good example of how a correct strategic approach can cause the quick collapse of the opposing position once the game is opened up"-GM Leonard Barden in his book 'Play Better Chess 1980'
Mar-29-08  ToTheDeath: Crushed. All those weakening pawn moves gave Black was a lost game.
Feb-16-12  Everett: Why not 27..Bxh4?
Feb-16-12  Shams: <Everett> 28.Qh1 must have been Petrosian's idea.
Feb-16-12  King Death: < Everett: Why not 27..Bxh4?>

A strong answer is 28. Qh1, a typical Petrosian move. Just like in the game, once h5 falls Black's in trouble. Somehow I think Black missed this when playing against h4.

Feb-17-12  Everett: Thanks for the backward chess-move lesson gentlemen! And thanks to Petrosian, of course.
Feb-17-12  Shams: <Everett> Lately I'm a bit fixated on putting my pieces in the corner. (No, I haven't been playing "Reversi".)

Here is a crushing Qh1 move:
Filguth vs A de la Garza, 1980

And a classic Bg7-h8 by Tal-- a fantastic idea:
Tal vs Y Rantanen, 1979

Feb-17-12  Everett: <Shams> thank you. Im familiar with the games but they are always good to revisit. Whenever I review a few Petrosian or Karpov games, my acquaintance with the back-rank also increases. Funny how that happens... Maybe I'll post one of my post-Karpov-studying games on my profile page...
Feb-17-12  LoveThatJoker: <everyone> Good job bringing this game to the fore. It's a great one.
