   Petrosianic has kibitzed 14256 times to chessgames   [more...]

Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <Your comparing that to 11 whites being strung up?> No, he wasn't. He was comparing it to the claim that some people were lynched as a result of being convicted in a court of law. <This is something the south still doesn't want to talk about or admit ...
   Jan-12-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
Petrosianic: As far as "Statistical Purposes" go, a game resigned on Move 1 isn't ratable. It's only ratable if both players have made a move. So, statistically it is the same as a forfeit, while a game like Akobian-So, on the other hand, is not.
   Jan-11-17 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
Petrosianic: Um, it's actually the only game in which Fischer fell into a book trap in the opening. It's not in M60MG, no.
   Jan-11-17 Sousse Interzonal (1967) (replies)
Petrosianic: Did I say 2nd best Interzonal result? Actually, it was 3rd (I forgot Tal in 1979). Actually, it depends on whether you count the Panno forfeit. If you don't, Timman in 1985 sneaks into the 3rd spot. Still, it doesn't matter, as the 88% in the Candidates is the real elephant in ...
   Jan-06-17 Reuben Fine (replies)
Petrosianic: <Dizzy Bishop>: <It is not sufficient to excel in this greatest of all games. Character is essential. Fine was an outright racist as per his undue comments against Petrosian.> Calling him the weakest world champion is hardly evidence of racism. Fine was jealous of ...
   Jan-06-17 Petrosian Memorial (1999)
Petrosianic: Most of them showed up only for the buffet. Spassky's 21.8 moves per game average is pretty typical of his results after around 1980-ish. Smyslov's 12 moves/game average was a matter of necessity. At his age, they could only take him out of the icebox for a half hour at a time. ...
   Jan-06-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: Speaking of Mission Impossible and chess, I saw a Season 1 episode called "The Carriers" a while back, and Martin Landau used the name "Tigran Portisch" as an alias. I don't think that was a coincidence. The writer must have known something about chess.
   Jan-04-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1966
Petrosianic: And recent performance at that. You could play at the 1830 level for 20 years, have one bad tournament, could cancel all that out and drop you into the 1700's. It's HEAVILY weighted towards recent performance.
   Jan-04-17 R Sanguineti vs Petrosian, 1976
Petrosianic: This game from the 1st Round of the Interzonal, is a textbook example of how stronger players pick up easy points from weaker ones by letting them cut their own throats. Sanguineti obviously wants a draw. With moves like Ng5, Nxe5, and Ba3-e7, he spends tempos trying to exchange
   Jan-02-17 I Nikolic vs G Arsovic, 1989 (replies)
Petrosianic: That's not the only game out there that contains illegal moves. For example, there was a famous game that I'm not remembering now (Steiner-Colle, 1930?), where a King on h1 got knocked off the board, and replaced on g1 without either player noticing. There was another case of a ...
