   Petrosianic has kibitzed 11016 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-28-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Nice shot. Did you bag your limit?> Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.
   Jan-23-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: <Abdel Irada>: <I now yield the floor so my special admirers can tell you *my* role in or against the project. I can't wait to find out what my plans are!> You know, this is just like that Batman episode where the Penguin was going to have Batman pick his crime for ...
   Jan-22-15 Amsterdam Interzonal (1964) (replies)
Petrosianic: I didn't know about that one. And Yusupov, Psakhis and Tukmakov, the top three finishers did play in the Interzonals. I wondered why I didn't have the 1981 Soviet Championship marked as a Zonal, even though it seemed like it ought to be. For that matter, 1975, and 1978 don't ...
   Jan-22-15 USSR Zonal (1964)
Petrosianic: <So, in 1964 Geller participated in the Zonal because his third place in Curacao qualified him only as a first "substitute" candidate. Obviously, Botvinnik's plans were not known in '64.> Probably guessed, but not "known". Botvinnik had made rumblings about retiring ...
   Jan-21-15 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: It wasn't 32. Kf3 that he missed either. The consensus at the time seemed to be that Fischer had counted on 30. g3 h5 31. Ke2 h4 32. Kf3 h3 34. Kg4 Bf1 35. Kxh3 Bxh2, but that he overlooked that White now has 36. Bd2!, keeping the Bishop trapped.
   Jan-21-15 Tata Steel (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Overgod>: <Do you want to play me as a guest on playchess?> You ask this right after commenting about how many low-rated players cheat there? Hmmm... Wouldn't it be easier to just actually, you know, <display> some chess knowledge instead of constantly ...
   Jan-16-15 Grigory Levenfish (replies)
Petrosianic: Yeah, when you're nearly as old as Lenin or Stalin, how can you hope to be taken seriously as a Soviet Man?
   Jan-15-15 Korchnoi vs Levenfish, 1953 (replies)
Petrosianic: Impossible, nobody's older than Korchnoi.
   Jan-14-15 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1956 (replies)
Petrosianic: <As I recall, the most common explanation for this inexplicable blunder was that Korchnoi had assumed after "sacrificing" his queen, that he could then deliver mate> Could be. I don't think Korchnoi has ever publicly said. <Keene and Stean's coverage of the 1977 ...
   Jan-13-15 Karpov vs Miles, 1980 (replies)
Petrosianic: By "objective commentator", I think he meant "the average American fan". No objective commentators were named, and it seems probably that this was not a serious claim, just a part of the comedy act that thegoodanarchist says he's doing.
