   Petrosianic has kibitzed 12268 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-01-15 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Sally Simpson>: <Let's say if there was a way to win it Carlsen would have found it.> How can you be sure, when he missed almost certain wins earlier in the game? This was one of the most remarkable games I've seen, not for the game itself, but for the patzer ...
   Sep-01-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: <Colonel Mortimer>: <Who but a troll would say that a peoples under the yoke of occupation experience liberty?> Isn't that what you said about the illegal Crimean Annexation?
   Sep-01-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Whoever thinks the wildcard should've gone to a Chinese is an absolutely clueless buffoon. Obviously, giving it to So was the only logical choice...> There's something almost schizophrenic about an ad hominem fallacy, followed immediately by a plea for logic.
   Aug-17-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Nosnibor>: <I would not think that Botvinnik was willing to play Fischer in 1970.> Nevertheless, he was. Botvinnik usually did tend to overestimate his chances. He thought he could beat Fischer. Granted, he was thinking more of 1967 Fischer than 1970 Fischer, but ...
   Aug-14-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Unless you can propose something tangible supporting your argument that Fischer was a prodigy, I won't be responding and hold my belief that Fischer wasn't a prodigy> Well, you seem to be equating "prodigy" with "child prodigy". Granted, Fischer wasn't a "child" when his ...
   Aug-14-15 Samuel Reshevsky (replies)
Petrosianic: It's fairly common knowledge. There was even talk of a Reshevsky-Keres match a few years before that, but nothing ever came of that one either.
   Aug-04-15 Spassky vs Fischer, 1960 (replies)
Petrosianic: In this case, what was learned was false. 3...d6 doesn't refute the King's Gambit. If it did, that's all anyone would play.
   Jul-27-15 Herman Steiner
Petrosianic: FWIW, Chessmetrics lists Steiner's 10-10 score in the '52 Interzonal as his all-time best performance.
   Jul-24-15 Fischer - Spassky (1992) (replies)
Petrosianic: We can get a rough idea. Spassky's January 1992 rating was 2545 So 10 wins = 2945x10 = 29,450 15 draws = 2545x15 = 38,175 5 losses = 2145x5 = 10,725 Total = 78,350 / 30 = <2611.667>, or round up to 2612. So I guess we all went over the actual retail price.
   Jul-24-15 Denker vs Fine, 1944 (replies)
Petrosianic: Heard the story, but I can't think of any time other than the 1944 US Championship where Denker specifically stood in Fine's way. The other instances must have been pretty minor.
