  whiteshark: Down with all materialistic 'French Defence' players!
Apr-23-08  The Chess Express: Petrosian's line is quite interesting and complex, but white does even better to play 6. Bd2 Bxc3 7. Bxc3 Qc7 8. dxc5 Nd7 9. Qg4.
Aug-21-08  nummerzwei: 6.axb4!? is one of Petrosianīs first "Petrosianic sacrifices", resulting in a monster knight on d6.

If 15...Kg8 white plays 16.Nf6+, e.g.
16...gxNf6 17.Qg4+ Kf8 18.exf6
(18.Bxh6+ picking up the queen is also possible)
...Ke8 19.Qg7 Rf8 20.Bxh6 and wins.

Apr-13-10  zabbura2002: Will White still win if Black did not overlook the Bishop move? Or was it a Blitz?
Dec-22-12  Conrad93: The Chess Express, white's line is the best in that position. This is proven by computer analysis.
Sep-02-14  residentlegal: I like Petrosian's analysis better than a computer for this game.
