   Petrosianic has kibitzed 9847 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-21-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Petrosianic: KK-I fizzled, but KK-II through KK-V pretty much lived up to the hype.
   Aug-21-14 Robert James Fischer
Petrosianic: A lot of the usual careless errors you get when non-chess magazines try to write about chess. But they made a mistake I've never seen before, claiming that Fischer beat Keres at Portoroz, when of course Keres wasn't even there. They were probably confusing the Interzonal with ...

Petrosianic: <Abdel--you're as big a kindergarten dummy as your friend Mort.> That'll convince him...
   Aug-21-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Petrosianic: I think Karpov also described Fischer as the last of the "Old School Champions", who worked mainly on his own. Players are backed up by teams of analysts these days.
   Aug-21-14 FIDE World Championship Tournament (2007) (replies)
Petrosianic: Here's a story about that. Radjabov had challenged under the "2700 Rule", and been accepted. But when Topalov lost the title, Radjabov lost his shot.
   Aug-20-14 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1969 (replies)
Petrosianic: I'm looking at it now. I believe the winning line is 52. Ra7 f4 53. Re7+, forcing the King in front of the pawn. Kf3 and now maybe 54. Kxb3. I think White is still on top here, though it's more difficult than I remembered, and Black may still have some resources. That was the ...
   Aug-20-14 Kirsan Ilyumzhinov (replies)
Petrosianic: <This is what the Kirsan mafia wants i guess. A west asian monopoly on chess events.> They may not WANT it. It may be that it's just too hard to get backing anywhere else. FIDE is a joke in a lot of places, thanks to articles like this: ...
   Aug-20-14 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969
Petrosianic: Spassky had just barely escaped from a long dead lost ending the game before. He needed a breather.
   Aug-15-14 Taimanov vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
Petrosianic: <If Matulovic had really taken a bribe, shouldn't he have tried to hide it?> I think it's an ego thing. They take the money to lose, but then they don't want their peers to think they're trying. That being said, I don't know for a fact that the story is true. It's ...
   Aug-14-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: Well, it happened before the war, of course. But after the war, I think you're right. Haifa is the only previous one.
