|Mar-08-06|| ||who: Classic Petrosian! Slowly choking his opponent.|
|Mar-21-08|| ||Knight13: <who> Yes. This is a very good strategic/positional masterpiece.|
|Aug-13-09|| ||birthtimes: Beautiful endgame pressure by Petrosian, especially from move 41 onwards. A textbook clinic on how: 1) to use one's rook to attack a queenside pawn majority, 2) to push the opponent's king backwards, 3) to centralize and advance one's king and center pawns, and 4) to reduce the opponent's counterplay via centralization control of one's own bishop...|

True. No time for endgame subtleties then.

|Nov-14-10|| ||Tigranny: Tigran always gives out great endgame strategies.|
|Oct-20-11|| ||Zugzwangovich: Ironically, Botvinnik resigned when Petrosian played 58. f6, when he could well have thrown in the towel had Tigran the Tiger played the same f6 on move 27.|

Quite ironic, in that Petrosian cannot play f6 on move 27. Perhaps you meant f5?
|Dec-02-11|| ||Zugzwangovich: <Everett> Yes, you're right. Guess I'm getting worser at numbers and grammar in my old age.|
