   Petrosianic has kibitzed 14971 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-17-17 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2017 (replies)
Petrosianic: <I dunno where the rumours come from.> From zborris8. He assured us that Naka's way was an automatic forfeit.
   Aug-16-17 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Petrosianic: Not totally remote. Tal underwent a major operation just before the tournament, and arguably SHOULD have dropped out. But yes, the odds were certainly low. But any arguments to the effect of "Stein only won the playoff because he had nothing to play for" are totally ...
   Aug-16-17 Bronstein vs Gligoric, 1958 (replies)
Petrosianic: This is from the penultimate round of the Interzonal. Bronstein is looking really good here after the b5 pawn break, but can't manage to bring the full point home. Maybe something like 36. Nc3 might have kept the pressure up longer. Something like 36. Nc3 Qa5 37. Ncxd5 Nc7 38. ...
   Aug-14-17 Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs Botvinnik, 1931
Petrosianic: Ilyin's not bad either.
   Aug-11-17 Aronian vs Svidler, 2017
Petrosianic: <studentt: 16...Qxg2?? 17.e4! and Black need to resign.> That's what I was thinking, but the more I look at it, the more I'm not sure. 17. e4 O-O 18. Bxc6 Rxc6 19. Qxc6 g4, and this is kind of dicey for White between the pin on the e pawn and the g pawn threatening to ...

Petrosianic: <Larryfyffe>: Right, like that. Thanks!
   Aug-10-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: <This is probably my favorite voracious-will-to-win game. How can you compete against someone who wants to win this badly?> That's actually pretty insulting, to suggest that in 14 games of the match, Fischer simply didn't want to win (because if he had, he would have) or ...
   Aug-09-17 Fischer vs Benko, 1962
Petrosianic: He didn't say he <preferred> to lose, he said he forgot. But it's true, that on the face of it, this game is more suspicious than any of the ones Fischer complained about. Of course "more suspicious" than "not at all suspicious" still isn't saying much. Recall that Benko ...
   Aug-08-17 Wesley So (replies)
Petrosianic: <Wesley is not afraid of loosing because he is boss. Winning or loosing we supporting him.> So, being boss means having your personal support? <Loosing is fart of the game.> Well, that I can't deny.
   Aug-08-17 Anand vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
Petrosianic: What was Fischer-like about it, or was it just an excuse to mention his name? The ending is much more reminiscent of Game 11 of the 1969 World Championship match?
