   Petrosianic has kibitzed 13618 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-26-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016)
Petrosianic: <He doesn't "simply decree", he makes very reasonable arguments - which you insist on ignoring - about why top tournaments today are more intensive for the players than such tournaments half a century ago.> That's a <claim>, not an argument. He failed to support the ...
   Sep-26-16 Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966)
Petrosianic: <Challenge: please rearrange these random words to form a coherent sentence.> It's saying Spassky is a nice guy.
   Sep-19-16 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: Ideally though, academic freedom may give a professor the ability to teach the curriculum in his own way. But it doesn't (or shouldn't) let him teach his own curriculum.
   Sep-15-16 Suttles vs D Haines, 1973 (replies)
Petrosianic: You mean titled players sometimes play weaker players in Swiss tournaments??? And I thought mother had told me everything.
   Sep-09-16 Petrosian vs Pachman, 1961 (replies)
Petrosianic: The whole debate about which was "better" was silly, since International Notation was, by those standards, better than either Descriptive or Algebraic, but nobody was advocating it.
   Sep-08-16 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927
Petrosianic: <Once> <Fritzie reckons that 16...Nxg4 would have led to a level game - but that's just silicon talking. Which carbon-based life form would like a half open file against their king with Alekhine sitting in the chair opposite?> Especially when that evaluation is ...
   Sep-01-16 Petrosian - Korchnoi Candidates Semifinal (1971) (replies)
Petrosianic: Oh, Surena knows what he's saying isn't true. He's heard the truth enough times, but seems to feel it's somehow liberating to lie to your face. As he knows full well, Benko wasn't paid off, and it wouldn't have done any good if he was, because when Benko dropped out the spot ...

Petrosianic: Herald is clearly one of those guys who doesn't mind repeating a mistake and hoping it will work out better next time.
   Aug-25-16 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Could someone explain what would be wrong with white 17.He5?> Helicopters don't move that way.
   Aug-17-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <And after Fischer's retirement everybody moved up a place (minimum).> No, they didn't. The pecking order was totally shaken. Before 1972, you could confidently argue that the best players in the world (in no particular order), were Spassky, Petrosian, Fischer and Larsen. ...
