  patzer2: Move 41 begins a pretty winning combination, which is an excellent example of utilizing the "knight fork" tactical theme. Former world champion Emanuel Lasker emphasized the importance of looking at all forcing moves, such as checks and captures, to see if there was a winning combination. It certainly paid off for white in this game.
Jul-20-03  chessamateur: This is a very instructive combination. And it invloves forcing moves as part of it as patzer2 says. I will now look for this theme in my games.

  whiteshark: Another 'royal fork'.

Maybe an explanation, why Petrosian was so familiar with it.

I found this combination here:

Oct-08-07  ughaibu: More family fun: Geller vs Z Mikadze, 1968
Jun-28-11  Tophie1984: 45.Sxd7+ is - of course - good enough, but White had a forced mate with 45.Qh6+ Kf5 46.Qf4+ Ke6 47.Qf7+ Kd6 48.Qxd7.
