|Oct-08-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Great positional play of Gligoric. |
|Oct-08-03|| ||Sylvester: This one is not in Gligoric's book. |
|Oct-08-03|| ||Benzol: <Sylvester> There is a book called Svetozar Gligoric Collected Games by Colin Leach. It was published by Caissa Books in 1988. It has 371 games in it including this one. Whether or not you could get hold of a copy in your local library is open to question but it might be worth a try. |
|Oct-10-03|| ||drukenknight: this is an interesting game to think about in terms of overall strategy, Gligoric makes it look easy huh? |
Petrosian runs out of time/space and seeks counter play with pawns in the center. I wonder if he would be better off seeking counterplay with the h pawn?
Of course they tell you, you will weaken the pawn fort etc.
When K are on opposite sides, pushing pawns in front of your K is usually bad. BUt when Ks are on the same side, what then?
This is interesting to think about because oftentimes we encounter this sort of stuff: symmetrical Kings Indian, reverse French, carokann, etc. And how many games we play where nothing is happening, then we get an idea and it turns out bad? Our opponent is some 10 year old, who doesnt know any openings, and he then he takes all your pieces. You swear he is as good as Gligoric.
So it makes sense to study games like this and see what we should do before we actually encounter this situation.
in terms of space black is certainly doing well on the q side, the blocked b pawn looks is a problem for white and advantage for black. but what abouton the K side?
If the chess gods create a problem for me on the q side, wouldnt they leave something for me on the K side?
|Sep-26-07|| ||simonpantera: Can anybody explain why Gligoric plays 10..b6 11..a6 12..b5 move order ?
Had he played 10..a6 11..b5 he would have had the same position, saving one tempo..
maybe it's not that important, but I just can't see the point of this..|
|Sep-26-07|| ||ughaibu: If he plays a6 first, white plays a5.|
|Sep-26-07|| ||simonpantera: Thanks.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: You know something has gone terribly wrong for White when Black has Benko Gambit pressure without the Benko Gambit sacrifice.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||newzild: Gligoric was an expert in the King's Indian with both colours - he had some great battles with Fischer.|
In this case he cleverly gains control of crucial squares in White's position until the threat of a nasty fork on c2 obliges Petrosian to attempt a dodgy pawn sac.
|Jun-19-10|| ||ounos: (moves 25-26), Petrosian unhappiness realizing that this is too many pieces to kick out with just a single pawn.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||kevin86: The Tiger gets tamed...
OR-The Tiger Bogeyed.
|Jun-19-10|| ||whiteshark: <Game of the Day>
They had some good fights together (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...), but this time Gligoric has beaten the reigning Worldchampion.
|Jun-19-10|| ||chrisowen: Just a stab in the dark but isnt it cheeky switch b5 opens up the whole game favouring black. Be no need for Ne3 knackers white. Holding Ng4 has gone in freeing the bishop once horse takes. Queenside under pressure a matter of inflicting severe carpet burns to the pawn structure. Gligoric irons out the wrinkles eyeing c2 b8 d4, suspect snatch shady approach play Tigran he's not i'm afraid cutting loose. Black steed dont long cue 38..Nxe1 end neckline.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||mortigi tempo: That black light-squared bishop sure gets around.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||PeterB: This game is a positional teaching masterpiece by Gligoric. The center is blocked, so expand on the Q side. Then play 14...Ng4 to remove the Ne3 defender of c4. Finally, plant a N on d4 and push down the b file. Victory follows!|
|Mar-28-12|| ||offramp: Petrosian was famously a massive over-achiever against the King's Indian. He faced it about 120 times, won 71 times and only lost 7 times. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
He lost one time to Bronstein & Rashkovsky; twice to that superb KID player Efim Geller and three times to Gligorić. (Gligorić lost 8 and drew 2 other King's Indians against TP.)|
What I think is odd is that although he was constantly taking the KID to the cleaners, Tigran frequently played the King's Indian Attack, and he scored +13, =11 -0. I know white has an extra tempo - but I still find that quite funny!
It is like Petrosian is saying, "Let me just give you a quick lesson in how to play this opening."
|Aug-15-17|| ||ewan14: Petrosian's first loss as world champ. Was to Gligoric !|
|Aug-15-17|| ||Howard: You probably mean his "first" loss since retaining his title against Spassky, the year before.|
Petrosian's very first loss as WC was at the Piatagorsky Cup in 1963...
...and it was against Gligoric !
|Aug-15-17|| ||RookFile: Whenever I try to play like Petrosian, I get crushed like he did here. I guess that every now and then it didn't work even for as great a player as Tigran Petrosian.|
