|Apr-11-08|| ||keypusher: At first I thought Saidy just walked into a simple (though hard to spot) trap with 20....Rd8. But it seems hard to figure out what Black should do after 19. h3!, which unexpectedly threatens to trap the queen in the middle of the board. 18...Rxd1+ 19. Rxd1 Rd8 was presumably better, but Black's position still looks a little uncomfortable.|
|Jun-28-08|| ||FSR: Larsen writes on p. 202 of the tournament book, "Lulled to sleep by Petrosian's quiet play, Saidy does not discover that this move contains a threat. Of course, Black's position is 100% healthy. One possible continuation was 19...N-N1." (i.e. 19...Nb8)|
|Jun-28-08|| ||FSR: This game was played in the good old "San" tournament (see the above scoresheet), known in some circles as "San Antonio 1972, Church's Fried Chicken First International Chess Tournament." I believe also the Church's Fried Chicken LAST International Chess Tournament.|
|Apr-01-10|| ||chancho: Saidy said he asked Petrosian where he went wrong in this game, and Petrosian said in Spanish: maņana. But Petrosian never got around to telling him.|
|Dec-15-16|| ||yiotta: 52.f6 really put the nail in the coffin.|
