Petrosianic: Okay, then we probably agree. Ordinary people don't benefit from those double standards. They think they do because they look at politics like it was a team sport, and your teams' success is the same as your own success. But it doesn't do us any good to know that some people got

Petrosianic: Aren't all grandmasters great?
   May-23-16 Petrosian vs Estrin, 1968 (replies)
