   Petrosianic has kibitzed 9718 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-30-14 Robert James Fischer
Petrosianic: <That people didn't know about it at the time, or how they felt, shouldn't matter to us now.> Well, the original claim was that it was a fact that Fischer was the World's #1 player during a time when there was no official ranking. It wasn't a fact and nobody believed it ...
   Jul-30-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: If it's true, I'm certainly interested. Multiple hits would argue against accidental theories.
   Jul-29-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Petrosianic: In the last election, wasn't it established that the delegates who had been purchased had to take pictures of the ballots with their cell phones, to prove that they'd voted for Kirsan, in order to collect their check?
   Jul-25-14 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Self-evidently, the champion's advantage is unfair, i.e., not the same for both sides, but did Fischer actually use the term 'illegitimate'?> Fischer didn't use the word in that particular letter at all. Edmondson called it "unfair", and in his response, Fischer said "I ...
   Jul-25-14 Veselin Topalov
Petrosianic: I think at this point Topalov knows he was wrong but isn't big enough to admit it. The evidence of Kramnik's games is pretty definitive and was so even at the time. Particularly the win Kramnik missed in Game 3 which he surely would have found if he'd been using a computer.
   Jul-24-14 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Petrosianic: A lot of this clout came through Euwe, who had long wanted to see a world championship fought between the top Eastern and top Western player (which is what really SHOULD have happened in 1948).
   Jul-21-14 Peter Leko (replies)
Petrosianic: <Perhaps Leko got demoralized when he lost his chance to be a world champion. He has great chance against Kramnik(needing only a draw in their last game). There are cases of players not being the same after losing matches.> Well, for one thing, Leko didn't lose the match. ...
   Jul-11-14 Spassky - Keres Candidates Quarterfinal Match (1965) (replies)
Petrosianic: <nimh> <I didn't expect my post would offend you so much.> Haven't you muddled this a bit in your mind? All I said, and you quoted it back to me, so I know you heard it, was "it doesn't really work". That ain't exactly hysteria. The hysteria was on your side with the
   Jul-08-14 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
Petrosianic: I've been saying that for the longest time. No titles at stake, don't care if it's Blitz, Rapids, or on a scaffold at Wrestlemania. Just get those two together.
   Jul-07-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: <It isn't a science either since it doesn't focus on nor try to explain the natural world.> The word "science" can legitimately be used to describe a methodical activity, discipline or study.
