   Petrosianic has kibitzed 15750 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-17-18 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1961
Petrosianic: <unferth>: <the technique I learned years ago for exploiting a backward isolani was for the attacker to trade OFF all the minors, pile up his pieces on the pawn's file, and then win it by advancing his own pawn to exploit the inevitable pin on a defensive heavy piece. ...
   Sep-14-18 6th Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Thinking back to the Botvinnik era, where he kept his title for more or less 15 years without winning any title defense outright, makes an argument against too many privileges.> He didn't keep it for 15 years. He lost it twice in that time, and had to win matches to get ...
   Sep-07-18 R Runau vs Schmidt, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: Of course you don't need it on YouTube when you can see it here...
   Aug-31-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Petrosianic: I've watched three videos on this game, and none of them tried to explain g5/a5 in any meaningful way. Two of them cheated and started analyzing the game after that point, when it was already lost. Carlsen himself came the closest, by vaguely saying that Nakamura thought he had ...
   Aug-30-18 Mikhail Botvinnik (replies)
Petrosianic: I haven't studied Botvinnik's games enough to know if you're right or not. I always seem to study him from the other side of the board, as being the mountain that somebody else is trying to climb. If you look at the Petrosian-Botvinnik match, it's a duel between two extremely ...
   Aug-30-18 Morphy vs Harrwitz, 1858
Petrosianic: I heard that Morphy pointed to a fence as he said this. Nobody could figure out why.
   Aug-28-18 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: <HeMateMe> <The similarity is that Larsen, like Carlsen, was somewhat alone in the chess world among Nordic players. There were some strong Icelanders and swedes but not top tier players like Larsen was.> Except maybe for Olafsson, who was clearly world class, and ...
   Aug-21-18 F Kuijpers vs Botvinnik, 1963
Petrosianic: I didn't know you didn't know. Wow!
   Aug-20-18 Jeremy Lim (replies)
Petrosianic: <saffuna>: <Take away the balk and you would take away stolen bases. Nobody could steal a base if they had to wait to break until the pitcher releases the ball.> I think that's true. The balk, like the stalemate, is one of those rules that nobody terribly likes, but ...
   Aug-02-18 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
Petrosianic: I remember once after a Team Event that we didn't win. Two of the guys on our team were churning out excuses left and right. I pulled the other guy who WASN'T making excuses aside, and suggested that we could all ride back home chanting "We shoulda won! We shoulda won!" He ...
