Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-27-03  Tigran Petrosian: For king's indian players, this game made people think that the king's indian was at it's demise.
Jul-27-03  Kenkaku: I've heard similar things about the Petrosian System as well, which gives King's Indian Defense players quite a bit of trouble.
Aug-17-03  doktortarrasch: This system is so good for black it is unbelieveable. The kingside attack for black is so strong that even one inaccurate move can lead to forced mate. As for the Petrosian system, at the highest levels it is rarely played anymore, as sufficient improvements have been found for black.
Aug-17-03  Kenkaku: True enough, though here is a notable exception Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994
Aug-17-03  morphynoman2: Why not 26... Rxg2!? 27. Kxg2 Qg7 28. Kh1 (only move!) Rg8
Aug-18-03  unclewalter: maybe b/c of 29. Qxf6 Qxf6 30. Bc3...then black's a rook down
Oct-12-03  morphynoman2: Maybe youre right, unclewater, thanks.
Apr-04-15  Carlo2000: <Tigran Petrosian: For king's indian players, this game made people think that the king's indian was at it's demise.>

But as someone (I think Tarrasch) once famously said: There are no good or bad chess openings, but there are good and bad chess players!
