   Petrosianic has kibitzed 12776 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-27-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: <ljfyffe> <please do not put your words into my's dishonest to do that....> Sigh. Go back and read it again (or for the first time, more likely). I said your post was misleading. You didn't deny it. You just explained that you said it way you did rather ...
   Nov-27-15 Ljubomir Ljubojevic (replies)
Petrosianic: Probably didn't qualify.
   Nov-27-15 Samuel Reshevsky (replies)
Petrosianic: <Reshevsky may have been declared the winner in the match with Fischer and received the winner's prize after all the shenanigans, but that match ended 5.5 all.> No, 7-5. Fischer forfeited two games before leaving.
   Nov-25-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <TheFocus>: <No <harry>. Fischer died. It was in all the newspapers.> Yes, but in Harry's mythology, he rose again on the third day.
   Nov-25-15 Ruslan Ponomariov
Petrosianic: How does Ponomariov winning a game make you or the rest of the human race look good? Isn't that the Sports Syndrome, where people feel that their team winning is the same as if they won something themselves?
   Nov-24-15 Alekhine - Euwe World Championship Match (1935) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Now there is a coincidence... > Yeah, but I wouldn't put too much stock in it, mainly because they're the only KNOWN meetings, not necessarily all the meetings. For example, this game is in the database, and actually counted against their lifetime record, even though it's
   Nov-24-15 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1974 (replies)
Petrosianic: Spassky is the only one he might possibly have played. But who knows?
   Nov-24-15 Lasker vs Blackburne, 1892
Petrosianic: Yeah, Taimanov-Botvinnik is a good game, I just don't understand how Taimanov fell into it. Rxc1 is fairly obviously bad, since Black gets the Rook on the 7th, while the alternate line burns down to a drawn R+P ending (the QRP with White Rook behind it clearly doesn't win). ...
   Nov-23-15 European Team Championship (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: Clearly not dominance. Fischer had a 120 point lead over the pack. Kasparov had a 120 point lead over everyone except Karpov (who Fischer avoided matching up with). What's the biggest lead Carlsen ever had over #2? 50 points? 60, maybe.
   Nov-23-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: Yeah, I guess it has been slightly over 2 years since Carlsen won the title. So it is technically True, (though highly misleading) to say that he's been champion "for years now".
