Petrosianic: <WorstPlayerEver>: Wow, are you guys STILL obsessed with him!? It would be funny if his whole schtick was just an act to get you to discredit yourselves.
   May-09-18 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1971
Petrosianic: <ughaibu>: <Korchnoi has been a fairly popular player, I've never really understood why, his play seems artificial to me. Petrosian on the other hand has been a fairly unpopular player yet his style produced many attractive games.> Many attractive games, yes. But he ...
   May-07-18 Fischer vs Larsen, 1966 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Toribio3: Fischer was outplayed by the great Danish master, Bent Larsen!> As long as you're just telling us what's on the scoresheet, you forgot to mention that Larsen was Black, and the game was played in Santa Monica. In Round 6.
   May-07-18 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: I called both matches that. Neither player was a champion, and the match hadn't been played yet, so there was no rule for naming it that I could see, other than what sounded good. For some reason, Spassky's name almost always sounds better in the second position. I guess because
   Apr-24-18 David Neil Lawrence Levy
Petrosianic: Ah, thanks, I'll check that out. And I think my memory is playing tricks on me. Rather than playing bonkers openings in the game he lost in that 1977 match, Levy had been playing bonkers openings in all the OTHER games. Now that I think of it, in the game Levy lost, he played a
   Apr-13-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Then we had several situations where the challenger had to win by either 2 points or wins> For "several situations", say "one situation only". That was in 1886 when neither Steinitz nor Zukertort was the defending champion. The stipulation has not been used since, ...
   Apr-13-18 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Petrosianic: <morfishine>: <I'm a big believer in wishing happy birthday to chess players that are actually alive> It is a little less sarcastic than hoping the dead ones have a happy birthday, which a lot of people do.
   Apr-13-18 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971
Petrosianic: I tried playing this game out with an engine a couple of times, avoiding 36...f4, with the following results: 36... Rxa2 37. Rg7 Ra5 38. Rg8+ Ka7 39. Rg5 Ng4+ 40. Kg3 Nh6 41. Rg6 f4+ 42. Kxf4 Rxh5 43. Rg5 Rxg5 44. Kxg5 And it looks like White has something here, with the g pawn ...
   Apr-12-18 USSR Championship (1966/67) (replies)
Petrosianic: Most Soviet Championships were not Zonals, yet it was still very rare for a World Champion to play in one. Botvinnik played in two, both with undesirable results. He won the first one, but only after a (clasical) playoff match with Taimanov. Had he lost a match, even a short ...
   Mar-31-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Petrosianic: <I consider Fisher eccentric and not lunatic.> I didn't realize Fischer was even in this tournament. But the point you're missing is that it's important for Fischer to be considered crazy in order to be able to give him a pass for being a Nazi. You've left him no out.
