   Petrosianic has kibitzed 10743 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-19-14 Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Match (1984) (replies)
Petrosianic: Karpov and Campomanes were good personal friends.
   Dec-19-14 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2014
Petrosianic: Beyond the fact that he wanted to win the game, how do you know what he was thinking? Did he say that in the press conference?
   Dec-19-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: A U.S. business? Technically Sony is a Japanese business, isn't it?
   Dec-19-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Kinghunt> <You can argue that philosophically, if you want, but I would claim that a mate in 1 is better than a mate in 20, even if the end result would be the same.> Yes. Because the odds of a person going wrong on the Mate in 20 are greater than the odds of him ...
   Dec-19-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Petrosianic: It does look like a good idea, trying to get one of the rooks over to the a file. It just doesn't quite work. But still, it is remiss of most of the books not to explore such a plausible-looking sequence and show the problems with it.
   Dec-19-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: Smart move. With a reunification match perpetually on the horizon, winning the FIDE title could have been equal to winning the PCA Candidates.
   Dec-17-14 USSR Championship (1969) (replies)
Petrosianic: It definitely seems wrong to combine the results from the playoff into the tournament itself. In the actual tournament, Petrosian and Polugavsky both scored +6, to share first. But by going -2 in the playoff, that drops Polugaevsky to only +4 (+7-3=17, according to the ...
   Dec-15-14 London Chess Classic (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: In this short an event, the rules are indistinguishable from Kashdan System tiebreaking. Nobody's going to change their playing style to try to win a tiebreak that might not even happen.
   Dec-12-14 Adams vs Kramnik, 2014 (replies)
Petrosianic: You're sure about that? You don't seem sure.
   Dec-12-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: Yes, Carlsen plays out games that have gone unplayed in recent years, and top GM's haven't been prepared for some of them. Now, eventually the world will adjust to Carlsen's style, get used to playing those games, and he'll slip back into the pack. That won't mean he's failed, ...
