|Sep-15-07|| ||CapablancaFan: <Maynard5> Yeah, it's so funny that black launches an all out assault on Petrosian's king position, while Petrosian remains content with simple defensive techniques that quickly puts the fire out. Everything black tried was snuffed as I can hear Petrosian's voice as he's moving the the pieces "la di da, da di da" not a care in the world, LOL.|
|Jun-17-08|| ||arsen387: Mr. Keene's annotations are very helpful to fully appreciate the beauty of Petrosian's technique. Very interesting game. |
<CapablancaFan: Everything black tried was snuffed as I can hear Petrosian's voice as he's moving the the pieces "la di da, da di da" not a care in the world.> LOOL!
|Jun-30-08|| ||ravel5184: <CapablancaFan> There should be only one "the" before "pieces". Also the annotation should read 24. Nxf4 not 24. Nxf5.|
|Oct-26-08|| ||sleepyirv: Keene's notes were great as always- I especially enjoyed, < After all Black's forceful play, it is HIS king that has become insecure.>|
|Sep-28-09|| ||ewan14: Does anyone know whether this was played before or after the 1961 USSR ( Zonal ) Championship ?|
|Nov-19-10|| ||goldenbear: This game and Spassky-Reshko are my two favorites. This game provokes a viceral reaction in me. I HATE Petrosian.|
|Nov-19-10|| ||waustad: <golden>You really ought to look at selecting Petrosian and exchange sacs some day and have an amazing afternoon watching some of the most interesting positional crushes anywhere.|
|Nov-19-10|| ||goldenbear: I've seen all Petrosian's games. Why do you think I HATE him so much?|
|Dec-12-10|| ||xombie: <goldenbear> You must have a lopsided definition of hate, if you love this game so much. Enigmatic, like Petrosian.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Perhaps one shouldn't allow Petrosian to play Petrosian's Variation--or is this game the reason why we named it so?|
Oh, and thank you, GM Keene, for your excellent annotations. I wouldn't mind one bit should you annotate all of The Tiger's finest games, for at last I'll be able to understand them.
|Sep-18-11|| ||sevenseaman: A very powerful game by white, made all the more interesting by some superkeen annotations. Worthy of being replayed 2-3 times for a deeper analysis when one can pay more attention to <GM Keene>'s drone.|
<39. Nf6+>? White can afford to sac the N because he has the killing 40. Nh5+ if the sac is accepted.
|Sep-18-11|| ||HeMateMe: It's a great pun.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||HeMateMe: One gets the feeling that Petrosian strangled a lot of people with these blocked center openings.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||sevenseaman: < HeMateMe: It's a great pun.> How so?|
|Sep-18-11|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: It's based on the name of a game show that was popular in the U.S.:|
|Sep-18-11|| ||ewan14: ( two years on )
late 1961 Petrosian gains revenge for his defeat to Stein in the 1961 zonal USSR Championship earlier in the year
( his only defeat on the way to the final , not counting pre - arranged draws )
11 ... C5 looks like a mistake IMHO
1967 - Stein and / or Geller come up with a '' refutation '' of the Petrosian variation as featured in the cracking Petrosian - Stein
KID game featured in Kasparov's OMGP
|Sep-18-11|| ||erniecohen: I think 26...bd8 might be the losing move. Black needs to both get his queen off of the c4-g8 diagonal and protect his g7 bishop to prevent white from gaining a tempo with a queen check on d4, so 26...g3 looks like his best chance.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||EdZelli: 33.Nd6 ! what a great move.
ewan14:Dude, don't be a hater. You begin
to sound like ol'e Bobby !
|Sep-18-11|| ||howlwolf: GM Keene, I echo an Englishman's comments. Thanks for the great annotation. To chessgames.com, great choice for GOTD as well.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||nolanryan: the annotations make me want to quit chess immediately. so pretentious|
|Sep-18-11|| ||WannaBe: Yeah, but before the game show, he was <THE TEACHER>!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP0m...|
Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? He is also an accomplished economist, you can go and research him on the internet. (Ben Stein, that is, not Bueller.)
|Sep-20-11|| ||kevin86: It was a nice game-thanks to our driver:Mr. Petrosian,and our guide Mr. Keene.|
|Sep-20-11|| ||Dionysius1: I have an observation about the placing of annotations when using this software, and a suggestion. Let's see if I can make it clear, cos it feels complicated in my head. It's tricky following annotations that take the position before the move which is annotated as the starting point, because I can't visualise the previous position very easily. For example, at 9...a6 the many variations referred to start at the postion at white's 9th move, so in my mind's eye I have to put the pawn back at a7 and then imagine the variations GM Keene points out.
But there might be a solution if we adopted a slightly different convention: what if annotators always attached the alternatives to the previous move, saying "now if...". Then I would be able to see what they meant more clearly,because I woudn't need to unplay a move in my head and with this software I'd even be able to move the pieces around (by dragging and dropping them) in accordance with the written suggestions.
What does anyone else think?|
|Sep-21-11|| ||Calli: <Dionysius1> I know what you mean. One solution is open another browser window and have the game on both, but a half a move behind on one of them.|
|Jul-29-12|| ||Everett: < <nolanryan>: the annotations make me want to quit chess immediately. so pretentious>|
You have a problem with that, yet post...
