   Petrosianic has kibitzed 12942 times to chessgames   [more...]

Petrosianic: The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows Americans working the same number of hours as they did in 2008. That suggests that there's been absolutely no job growth at all, only more people dividing up the same amount of work among themselves.
   Feb-01-16 Capablanca - Alekhine World Championship Match (1927)
Petrosianic: <I completely agree. 1916 to 1922 healthy Capablanca, the chess machine that was almost inhumanly accurate, would have surely won games 27 and 31. And won the match.> It's hard to second guess this stuff. He absolutely should have won Game 27, and might very well have won ...

Petrosianic: <That's debatable. Steinitz's dominance over his colleagues during his lifetime was as extraordinary as it was absolute almost to the end of his life (and there is a strong case to suggest he was world champion from 1866 when he beat Andersson until his loss to Lasker). The ...

Petrosianic: Well, not quite. As an Armenian, Petrosian was the first Asian Grandmaster.

Petrosianic: Which one likes guacamole more?

Petrosianic: You don't want him to rip?
   Jan-15-16 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Petrosianic: <the pairings weren't done by drawing names out of a hat.> I believe they WERE, at least into the 1980's.

Petrosianic: Odd tournament. Spassky beat the bottom 3 and drew the rest, Karpov beat the bottom 2 and drew the rest. For Karpov in 1983, it's the kind of tournament where you'd expect him to go +5-0=5.
   Jan-12-16 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1977 (replies)
Petrosianic: The French is anti-positial, or the Winawer is? I can see the argument about the Winawer (developing Bishops before Knights, weakening the Kingside prematurely). Not sure that applies to all French lines, though.
   Jan-12-16 Viktor Korchnoi
Petrosianic: One of the clearest signs of Korchnoi's career renaissance in the mid 70's was the complete turnaround in his results against Petrosian after 1973. Here's how their career results break down (essentially, Korchnoi was dominated before 1973, and did the dominating afterwards) : ...
