|Jun-21-14|| ||kereru: after 25...Nf4 26.Rxf4 e5 is an interesting try. If 27.Rf3 fxg6 28.Be6+ Kh8 29.Rh3+ Bh6 30.Bxh6 Black has the resource 30....Rf1+! 31.Kxf1 Qf6+ 32.Kg1 Qxe6 33.Rxd6 Qf5! and white has no effective discovered check. However 27.Rxf7 Rxf7 28.Be6 wins prosaically.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||20MovesAhead: Rookiepawn 28... Be5 is a good idea but here is one line for white|
29. Bh6 Qb6 30 c5 Qa6 if... b2 f2 wins the ueen 31 h4 with the idea 32 Re5 de5 33 Re7 Kh8 34 Bg7 Kh7 35 Bf6 Kh6 36 Bg5 Kh5 37 g4 checkmate
|Jun-21-14|| ||Anjeneyar: <Rookie pawn>
On 28.......Be5.29.Bh6.Qb6+.30.Kf/h1.Qxb2? 31.Rf2+!.Kh7.32.Rxb2.Bxb2.33.Bg5! White is a piece up and should win easily. I believe this is decisive enough.
Moreover, white instead of Bh6 can play 29.c5!. If 29...Qa5.30.Bd2!.Qxa2.31.Rxf1+!.any K move 32.Rxe5!.Qxb2.33.Re2! And white should win this easily with 2R and 2B vs Q+R. Black king is still in a mating net. He cannot relapse his R easily. Eg., 31....Kg7 With a view to 33.....Rf8. 34.Rxf8!!.Kxf8.35.Bh6+.Qg7.36.Bxg7+.Kxg7 and white is a R and B up with an easy win!
|Jun-21-14|| ||dfcx: 25. Qxg6 looks really interesting. It opens up the a2-g8 diagonal for the bishop and the f file at the same time.
25...fxg6 26. Bxe6+
Two options here for black,
26...Rf7 and Kh7/h8. (ok three).
26...Rf7 27. Bxf7+ Kf8 28. Bxg6+ and white has a very good attack with bishops and rooks. I do not see how black can survive.
26...Kh7/h8 27 Rh3+ Bh6 (forced) 28. Bxh6, now black king can't escape.
28...Rf5 29. Rxf5 - no better than the first option 26...Rf7.

|Jun-21-14|| ||Conrad93: I forgot to remember that 99% of puzzle on ChessGames.com involve a queen sacrifice. Damn!|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: Nice but unfortunatelly a bit too famous for puzzle.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Alanx: Stop seeing the end. 20.-Bxc5! would have finished the match earlier.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Jimfromprovidence: There is another nice way that white wins if black plays 28...Bd5 beside 29 Bh6.|
Try 29 Rd4!

That rook is untouchable.

|Jun-21-14|| ||Marmot PFL: Larsen commented that the queen sac was simple, although it surprised some of the spectators who might have expected the repetition of moves. He had to see it when he played 20 e5!, which is the star move, giving up a pawn to get an attack tempo with the queen.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||thegoodanarchist: Pry open the h-file, then sac, sac, mate :)|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Marmot PFL: <thegoodanarchist: Must be nice to defeat the reigning world champion, even if it is just with the White pieces.. :)>|
Larsen beat Petrosian twice in this event, once with each color. Petrosian's results as WC were not very good, outside of Olympiads and his first match vs Spassky.
|Jun-21-14|| ||perfidious: While the statement on Petrosian's performance overall as reigning champion is true, it is no different than things were with his predecessors: Alekhine was the previous champion to post consistently excellent results as titleholder, and it would only be with Karpov's ascent to the throne that the world would see another.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||agb2002: I have nothing to add to my Sep 10th 2010 post.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||FSR: <Marmot PFL> True, although he did tie for first with Keres at the First Piatigorsky Cup (1963) shortly after becoming champion.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Petrosianic: <Larsen beat Petrosian twice in this event, once with each color. Petrosian's results as WC were not very good, outside of Olympiads and his first match vs Spassky.>|
Not very good by Karpov/Kasparov/Carlsen standards. We've gotten spoiled lately by having 3 of the last 5 champions be dominating ones. But throughout history, that's been the exception rather than the rule. Of the non-dominating champions, Petrosian's results were actually better than most.
|Jun-21-14|| ||Moszkowski012273: 28...Be5 was a wee bit better.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||gars: Petrosian lost a third game in this tournament, this time against Portisch (White), a King's Indian Defense which lasted thirty-two moves.|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Rookiepawn: Hey, thanks to all who replied to my useless idea. They all proved me wrong, but <Jimfromprovidence>'s variant is the most elegant. |
"Untouchable?, we'll see that" was my first thought... And yes, it is untouchable so the rook can still move on the rank.
|Jun-21-14|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Don't forget that Petrosyan was the first world champ actually to win a world championship match while champ (Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966)) since Alekhine - Bogoljubov World Championship Rematch (1934)|
|Jun-21-14|| ||Breunor: IS 20 B x c5 better than e5? I think it wins a queen for a rook and bishop, but that may not be better than the game.|
20 B x c5 P x c5 21 Nf6ch B x f6 22 R x d8 Rf x d8.
Is there a better line for white here?
|Jun-22-14|| ||M.Hassan: "Very Difficult"
White to play 25.?
White is a pawn down and has a Bishop for a Knight.
The open h file is tempting:
28.Bxh6 threatening next Bf8#
White is stronger and should win.
And the above line can be repeated.
Time to check
My lines are way different
|Jun-23-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: <Alanx: Stop seeing the end. 20.-Bxc5! would have finished the match earlier.>|
Well, it is not so simple. After 20.Bxc5 dxc5 21.Nf6+?! (21.Qxc5 is probably better here) 21...Bxf6 22.Rxd8 Raxd8 (diagram) black can be satisfied.

White nominal material advantage (Queen against Rook and Bishop) is compensated by powerful Bishop pair and firm control of d-file. The game can continue with 23.Qe2 (black was threatening Bd4) 23...Be5 24.b3 (24.Rd1 drops the Pawn on b2) 24...Rd4 25.Bf3 Rfd8 and it is already black who can hope in advantage. Of course, both players were well aware of that, Petrosian intended to sac his Queen in this way and Larsen was absolutely right to decline this offer.
