   Petrosianic has kibitzed 9992 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-19-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: And the most advanced political thinker, I know. But I wasn't trying to gush about him, I was making the serious point that eliminating book knowledge wouldn't help him as much as it would help many p layers. (Particularly someone like, say Reshevsky, who had so little of it to ...
   Sep-19-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: Well, if you read that comment above, the issue isn't so much the total vacation time as it is the timING. He sees a gruesome video and makes a beeline for the golf course. It looks detached, uncaring, and "tone deaf". (Which, frankly, he probably IS, along with most of ...
   Sep-19-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: That's ASSUMING that both players play at exactly the same average level that they have recently. But that's always the catch, isn't it?
   Sep-18-14 Paul Keres (replies)
Petrosianic: Okay, but then he didn't win the Candidates Tournament. That was the one time he didn't even finish second. So he did have his chance, unlike, say Rubinstein.
   Sep-17-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Sally Simpson: Well It's Official. :) Fischer is the most well known chess player.> I wouldn't put too much stock in that. Arguably, Maurice Ashley and Bruce Pandolfini are better known than Mikhail Botvinnik (in some countries, at least), but what can we conclude from ...
   Sep-16-14 Leonid Stein (replies)
Petrosianic: <Only karpov, fischer, geller and korchnoi had a plus record against him from the famous players.> Well, of the TOP players, yes. Of the slightly lower, but still very famous players, Larsen, Portisch and Hort all had +1 scores against Stein.
   Sep-15-14 Tal vs Fischer, 1959
Petrosianic: Yeah, one of the great runs. And even when the ride was over, Tal hovered near the top of the heap for decades.
   Sep-12-14 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971
Petrosianic: Probably. It's well known that no healthy chessplayer ever lost a game.
   Sep-11-14 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Petrosianic: Which three games are you thinking of? Game 8, obviously, but what are the other two? Games 10 and 21 seemed to be deliberate sacrifices.
   Sep-11-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: This is a better <contest> than Game 6, but Game 6 was better played. This one has some flaws that lower the quality a little. So, it depends what you think makes a game good? The quality, or the fight? I think for quality of play, I'd rate Fischer's victories in this ...
