Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-06  notyetagm: Simple chess by Petrosian. He trades queens early, on move 23, (I believe) because he -already- sees that the weakness of the Black queenside pawns will prove decisive.

Black resigns in the final position because he has no way to <DEFEND> his fixed b5-pawn after 42 ♗b6-a5, denying the Black a8-knight access to the c7-square from which it could <DEFEND> the critical b5-pawn.

The ending proved Petrosian to be correct about Black's two pawn weaknesses: the backward Black a7-pawn on the open a-file and the blockaded Black b5-pawn -both- fell, leaving Petrosian with an easy win.

Dec-04-07  arnaud1959: After 11.-b5 black had just to play a5 to free himself but Petro never game him the opportunity. He even played the incredible 12.♗a3! putting his bishop behind his pawns, in a "passive" position.
Dec-05-07  pawnofdoom: Amazing ending (or the last move at least). Apparently, its the only game in the database at the moment that ends in Na8 1-0. Would be even more spectacular is it was Na8 0-1

  Phony Benoni: <pawnofdoom> Yes, games ending ...Na8 1-0 are unusual, simply because Black rarely resigns before White makes a move. But this game isn't unique: see T Yilmaz vs Wojtkiewicz, 1991

Here's few games with Na8 0-1 for you: R T Cardoso vs O Sarapu, 1978, Jerry Berry vs T Gossell, 2001, Gheorghiu vs Yusupov, 1985, Shirov vs J L Arnason, 1992, Ar Tiwari vs L Chatterjee, 2000, H Richards vs A Motoc, 2001.
