   Petrosianic has kibitzed 11499 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-27-15 Manila Interzonal (1976)
Petrosianic: The Manila interzonal was played before the Biel one. Spassky couldn't be sure that he had Fischer's spot until after seeing the results of the next Interzonal. He might have had to play Petrosian, Portisch, or both to get that spot.
   Apr-27-15 Huebner vs Petrosian, 1976
Petrosianic: <By the way, if Spassky and Petrosian DID qualify from their respective interzonals, then Byrne would have been next in line for Fischer's spot---correct ?> Maybe. Yeah, Byrne is the only other player from 1974 who wasn't in the 1977 Candidates. But if Spassky had ...

Petrosianic: <Jim Bartle>: <The US effectively conceded defeat in Vietnam when it passed most military responsibilities to the South Vietnamese. There were no illusions that South Vietnam could hold off the North,> Yes, I think that's true. It must be the only war in history in ...
   Apr-27-15 Kasparov vs Short (Blitz) (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: Like Smyslov and Tal ruined theirs, you mean? Or even Capablanca and Karpov? Nobody takes them seriously any more either.
   Apr-26-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: Wow, if Carlsen didn't suck, imagine how much more he would have won this tournament by!
   Apr-24-15 AVRO (1938) (replies)
Petrosianic: <The best aged tournament performance has got to be a 55 year old Lasker winning by a substantial margin over a field containing Capablanca and Alekhine at New York 1924> Possibly, although two other candidates leap to mind: 1) Smyslov making it to the Candidates Final at ...
   Apr-24-15 FIDE World Team Championship (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Which post-Soviet state do you think Petrosian would have represented had they all been independent at that time? Keep in mind that Petrosian was born and raised in Georgia.> Born in Georgia, yes, but raised in both Georgia and Armenia. He played in both Georgian and ...
   Apr-24-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: Not about Owens specifically, he wasn't. But there's a lot of myth around those olympics. The Germans won heavily overall, which Hitler was quite happy about. And the Owens snub story is untrue, according to Owens' own biography. What happened was that on the first day, Hitler ...
   Apr-23-15 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: For example, 23...axb5 24. Rxb5, and Black is in no serious trouble, and a probable draw is on the horizon. It looks as though the exchange sacrifice is done with an eye to trying to win. On the other hand, Black isn't in trouble for a long time after the exchange sac either.
   Apr-23-15 Zsuzsa Polgar (replies)
Petrosianic: <keypusher>: <So, Judit Polgar has a plus score against Nigel, therefore...what, exactly? Short's argument is refuted?> No, that would be a Fallacy of Composition (or Division or both, depending how it's stated). But on the other hand, does Short HAVE an argument to ...
