Aug-12-07  patzerboy: Looks like the finish, at least from 50...Re3 must have been calculated out with some precision by Petrosian. He adandons the exchange and two pawns and subjects his king to an attack by TWO rooks. He had to have foreseen sanctuary for his King as well as the threats associated with his passed pawn.
Aug-13-07  Wolfgang01: What is with the score? Why didn't Klovans play 49. Pxb5? Am I missing something?
Aug-13-07  Wolfgang01: I've been looking at chessbase.
48. Rg5 makes a lot more sense!!

Please correct the score.

Jun-03-09  arsen387: Petrosian must have seen the exchange sac already when playing 45..Qb7 or maybe even sooner! It's outstanding how he plays these exchange sacrifices
