  GrahamClayton: Ivanovic hopes that Petrosian will fall for 123. ♖xd7?? stalemate, but Tigran would have kept the rook on the 6th rank, with mate to follow.
Jun-06-14  joddon: Soory to the player but 25....rxe3 was the stupidest move I ever seen................I mean trading his queen for two knights was the most surprising thing I ever seen....... but then I think reg GMs those days could easily intimidate their opponenets so much that that would be done so readily easily......but thenthe e pawn was not so much a dangerous threat.....and still I think black could still have gotton a draw from this game!! 25...q-d6 would easily stop or save the game.....although the n forking the king and rook is bad but nothing is wrong if the queen can take the knight off!!good insight for white but I think black hurried its way much too fast!
Jan-30-16  Howard: What tournament was this played in ?

There may be a complete crosstable in the back of the relevant Informator, if you have it.
