Apr-26-08  NM James Schuyler: What a crush! Petrosian makes Filip look like an A-player here.
Dec-13-08  Poisonpawns: Amazingly simple game by Petrosian.14..ng4? started the troubles for black and by move 16..Qh4 he was lost.
May-02-09  blacksburg: whoa. after 20...Qg2, i'd be thinking <great, i'm screwed, time to bail out with Qe4 and maybe i'll get lucky>. petrosian is thinking <great, i'm winning, Qe4!!>.

this is some deep stuff here. or at least my shallow mind finds it to be rather deep.

Nov-27-10  xombie: Nimzo will categorize this in his 'sudden centralization' theme. All three queen moves, Qe4, Qe3 and Qg1 deserve !!s. Also, notice Rh4 which suddenly gains tempo on the queen and goes into attack.
