Sep-15-07  Emma: A Game like this make you realise that people are world champions because they are the best tacticions. Everything else is just style

  Breunor: blingice: That doesn't do anything: Qxd4.

I don't think this works, after Qxd4, I think black can play Nf3 ch nabbing the queen.

al wazir: If 28...Qc5, does white have anything better than 29. Rxc5 Nxc5 30. h8=Q+ Rxh8 31. Bxh8 ?

Not sure, how about 29 g5 ch? If N x g5, R x Q may be better here.

Sep-15-07  mallocks: <al wazir> Rybka suggests the following line following 28...Qc5:

17-ply (+7.22) 29.Raf1 b6 30.R1f3 Ba6 31.Rxc5 Bxd3 32.Rh5+ Kg6

Sep-16-07  GrandPatzerSCL: It's nice of Minasian to play through to checkmate, despite knowing the mate was coming. I appreciate that kind of stuff, as do others, I'm sure.

  kevin86: A one in a million game. White sacrifices queen and rook to mate with a pawn!!

Much too much of black's army is left on the starting blocks. The rooks and bishop are as useful as Christmas tree lights in mid July.

Sep-24-07  patzerboy: Yikes! wrong Tigran.

[egg on face]

Sep-24-07  Davolni: Just by looking this game, I think young Petrosian deserves his name!!!
Oct-06-09  WhiteRook48: if it was any world champion then it would be Tal not Petrosian
Nov-15-10  sevenseaman: The only thing I wanted to verify was Minasian's Fide rating!
Nov-15-10  sevenseaman: This is for the first time I learn that there were two Petrosians; V the positional wizard and WC, and L here.

I find this game from L equally worthy of V and indeed was mentally attributing it to the latter.

Feb-02-12  nolanryan: BRILLIANT
Oct-01-12  shakman: same opening line ... Rybka vs Shredder, 2009
Nov-23-13  asiduodiego: I guess if your name is "Tigran Petrosian", you have no choice but to produce beautiful games such as this. XD

May-22-16  piltdown man: <Emma> Wrong Tigran! This Tigran is pretty good, but he wasn't world champion.

User: Emma has not posted here for 7 years and I fear that she still roams the streets of France spreading abroad the disinformation that this game was by Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian.

However I am going to visit Avignon next year and if I run into her I shall show her a copy of your post and watch her carapace of blissful ignorance shatter.

May-22-16  alshatranji: How about 26.g5 (?) The actual one i more brilliant of course. But g5 seems quite strong.
May-22-16  morfishine: Chernev would call this glorious
May-22-16  Ratt Boy: He's a bit more of a fiery tactician than his namesake.
May-22-16  Ironmanth: Beautiful!
May-22-16  catlover: Nice choice for GOTD.

How do you know he's a tiresome factician?

May-22-16  thegoodanarchist: This is the type of game that Funk & Wagnalls might describe as symbolizing an iconographic codex of epistemological relativism.

Each move, nay, each ply even, rectifies the previous subsumption that, at the time of the artifice being in play, was errantly derived.

Honestly, I can entreat no greater epitaph, and one is indeed merited, as the king was mated.

May-23-16  hamzaable: this is best tactical game i have seen till today
