|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.

Petrosian vs Fischer, 1970
|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.|
|Nov-29-11|| ||play2win: This is a great game.|

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.|
|Dec-27-13|| ||yiotta: This is an example of how the B is sometimes better than the N.|
|Dec-27-13|| ||Petrosianic: One example among thousands?|
|Dec-27-13|| ||offramp: This was such a hard match. Petrosian only lost twice, including game one. His wins were hard-fought as Botvinnik was not the kind of opponent to be knocked over in 25 moves. Both players must have been exhausted by the end.|
|Mar-11-14|| ||zydeco: One of Petrosian's strategies in this match was to play Botvinnik's opening innovations against him. (4.Qb3 was first played by Botvinnik against Levenfish in 1933 -- according to Kasparov.) |
The pawn structure in this game is very similar to Game 5 (split black pawns on e6 and g6) although this time Petrosian has a bishop v. a knight, instead of the other way around, and Petrosian's own pawn structure isn't so good, so he gets the win by maneuvering energetically with pieces.
According to Kasparov in OMGP, Botvinnik missed chances for counterplay with 16....Qc8, 18.....c6, and either 23.....Nc4 or 23.....Bxd4 24.Rxd4 Raf8.
It's impressive how Petrosian's rook outmaneuvers Botvinnik's rook from move 39 to move 46.
|Feb-24-16|| ||Ulhumbrus: The move 47...Nf8 suggests that Black would like to play 48...Ne6. If so, White does not wait for this but plays 49 Rf6+ first. The black King is then overworked. If he has to defend the g6 pawn by going to g7, he cannot then defend the square e6 so as to support the move ...Ne6|
|Feb-25-18|| ||tgyuid: i'm not all that sure about 1.d4; okay in this game black fails to take advantage;; i accept that;; still....|
|Feb-25-18|| ||tgyuid: instinctively i want to just e5 that; d'you know what i mean....|
|Feb-25-18|| ||tgyuid: the utterly psychotic gambit, we could call it that; i just know its playable somehow....|
|Feb-25-18|| ||tgyuid: see, the thing is bov; you're now playing his style of game;|
|Feb-26-18|| ||tgyuid: 14.0-0-0; funny|
|Feb-26-18|| ||tgyuid: 39.a5; lethal|
|Feb-28-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: This game is the turning point of the match, which was even after 14 games. But here TVP scores the first of 3 wins that MB would not be able to answer.|
This is an historic game, to say the least.
|Feb-28-18|| ||RookFile: No question, a beautiful game.|
|Feb-28-18|| ||SpiritedReposte: Such delicate middlegame play.|
