|Mar-16-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Great to see this game again--the queen-in-prison game.|
|Feb-02-10|| ||sfm: 14.-,Nd4(!!) is among the most bold and brilliant moves I have seen, even though Keene's line looks devastating for Black.|
|Feb-02-10|| ||mig55: Gligoric was a very good player, sometimes underestimated.|
|Feb-02-10|| ||AnalyzeThis: Petrosian was a great defensive player, but Gligoric gave him a good old fashioned butt whoopin' in this game.|
|Nov-14-10|| ||NM JRousselle: This game is not popular with kibitzers because positional maneuvering is little understood.|
|Mar-08-11|| ||Albertan: GM Lubomir Kavalek recently annotated this game for his chess column in the The Huffington Post.You can access this analysis by clicking on the following link: |
|Apr-05-11|| ||bronkenstein: Ty Albertan for nice read :)|
|May-14-11|| ||Albertan: Your welcome bronkenstein I am glad you enjoyed GM Kavalek's analysis of this game! :)|
|May-14-11|| ||Albertan: <mig55: Gligoric was a very good player,>
< sometimes underestimated.>|
He certainly was! He was considered by many to be the second best player in the West behind Fischer, in the 50's and 60's.
|May-15-11|| ||bronkenstein: He was definitely good candidate for THE best of the west second half of 50s , together with Reshevsky , while Larsen and Fischer were still too young , and falling to , atleast , 3rd place in 60s behind these 2 youngsters (he was in his 40s already , hard to keep fighting on the top ).|
|Oct-06-11|| ||sevenseaman: Valiant efforts by Petrosian but I think he met another positional wizard here!|
|Oct-06-11|| ||goodevans: I don't mind the irrelevant and frankly poor puns when the games are as good as this.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||kevin86: The "Tiger" seems on the run from the very start of this one.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||scormus: Superlative performance by Gligoric, with great positional mastery. As I played it, I had no idea most of the time what move he'd make and what deeply veiled threats he had. Not simply a series of tactical shots|
Almost any B to play move after 16 Qxf3 would be cruel to give as a POTD, even on a Sunday
|Oct-06-11|| ||waustad: The move that stunned me was 21.) h3. There probably was some tactical reason he had to do it, but it looked suicidal to my patzer's eyes.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||Mladja: Really great game!|
|Oct-06-11|| ||cloutier: This is the best game of the day I've ever seen! Gligoric played like a monster.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||rapidcitychess: /Old Man Voice
Back in my day, we didn't have such pitiful puns! The golden days, when we were confused over the cryptic puns that were more like word puzzles! Only my puns usually fell in the "bad" list. ^.^
/End Old Man Voice
Amazing game, really. I loved how the pawn storm that White had never got going due to the kingside bomb. It's how the King's Indian must be played; With boldness, because as soon as you try and defend your queenside, you get crushed.
|Oct-06-11|| ||bronkenstein: <rangek: Is there a reason why this game isn't too popular with the kibitzers?>|
If Petrosian was on the winning side , after strategical piece sac like this I bet the game would have 10 times more comments.
The moral of the story is , if you want your game to become popular , find some (ex)WC (even top rated player will do, donīt be too picky ) and lose to him brilliantly :)
|Oct-06-11|| ||harish22: Along with Reshevsky, Larsen and Fischer , Gligoric was the best non-Soviet GM of that era. He was very good on both sides of KID. He fought some tough battles with Fischer in that opening. In this game he reduces and ex-world champion to a coffee-house player. |
Qh1 seems to be a blunder. Qe2. followed by f3 may have been normal.
|Oct-06-11|| ||brankat: After a poor showing in the Zurich Interzonal,1953, Gligoric seriously considered quitting chess, but was persuaded to participate in the tournament hosted by his hometown, Belgrade in 1954. |
This beautiful victory against T.Petrosian made Gligoric change his mind.
Gligoric vs Petrosian, 1954
|Dec-19-11|| ||brankat: After <17. Qh1> White (Petrosian> seems to be lost already! And after <21...Be5> the game resembles a Demolition Derby :-)|
Rarely had Petrosian been clobbered like he was in this game.
|Aug-14-12|| ||kingscrusher: Inspired by Gligoric:
|Dec-12-12|| ||carelessfills: Gligo himself analyzed this game in his monthly Chess Life and Review column shortly after it was played. It converted me into a frequent KID player from both sides.|
|Mar-03-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: A most brilliant King's Indian by Svetozar Gligoric.|
This game is #78 in A. Soltis's book, "The 100 Best."
