  patzer2: Petrosian has many ways to win at his 29th turn, but the neat demolition combination 29. Nxe6! does the job nicely. The computer evaluations suggest 29. Rad1 e5 30. Nxf7 is stronger, but this demolition of pawn structure appears to be just as effective -- even if it takes a bit longer. It's a little surprising that White decides to go from being the exchange up to a position where Black has two pieces for the Rook. However, after capturing nearly all of Black's pawns as compensation, White's win is never in doubt.

  patzer2: Is it possible that 18...g6?! (instead of 18...Nc4 =) loses. After 19. Bxc6! it's hard to find an improvement for Black. If it is forced, then 19. Bxc6! apparently leads to the trapping of the Rook to win the exchange with decisive advantage.
Jan-10-08  hovik2003: As noted by <patzer2> after 19th move white's game as once David Bronstein said is like a good horse who give you a safe ride to home by itself.
