   Petrosianic has kibitzed 10600 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-26-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: Oh, it was amazing stuff. The really early stuff he did, for Canada Dry, Chevrolet, and General Tire was awful. I was afraid I'd have to suffer through years of episode before it got good. But no way. Only a couple of dozen. By Fall 1936, the show became so funny that I was ...
   Nov-26-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Sally Simpson>: <But you can spin any yarn you want to on this one.> And if you do, you'll be misunderstanding the question, which was "does anyone know", not "does anyone have a wild guess". The answer to the question is no, either the reason hasn't been made ...
   Nov-26-14 Paul Keres
Petrosianic: <I believe were just unlucky.> Unlucky in the sense of unlucky in their games, or unlucky in the fact that somebody a little better was always around? For example, I consider Fischer to be a little unlucky in coming right before Karpov and Kasparov. With the dominance he ...
   Nov-26-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: <the old game who would you invite to a dinner party - I'd probably choose: BOTVINNIK - although a staunched communost also an interesting researcher in cybernetics and other stuff.> But does being a staunched communist necessarily make one a good dinner guest?
   Nov-26-14 Nakamura-Aronian Match (2014) (replies)
Petrosianic: Apparently?
   Nov-26-14 Karpov vs Polugaevsky, 1983
Petrosianic: <Olavi>: <The one true instance of a player leaving a top tournament while leading is Huebner in Turin 1982.> If we definite "tied for first" as "leading", then there are other examples. For example, Walter Browne withdrawing from the 1978 US Championship just before
   Nov-25-14 Samuel Sevian (replies)
Petrosianic: Well, I'm sure you're right that if he ever plays for the title, US Chess will try to claim him. That should prove interesting, actually, since he has dual citizenship. But his FIDE card shows him as Italian only. If he manages to win the title, he'd probably be considered an ...
   Nov-25-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <I'm not at all alone in this view. MC was not quite so dominant 3-4 years ago when he could have challenged Anand (instead of it being Gelfand).> Anand-Gelfand was actually only TWO years ago.
   Nov-25-14 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Way back in 1894, another exceptional chess world champion grabbed the Title from Steinitz. Emanuel Lasker. No one today was alive then, but to the chess world, he must have carried the same essence of invincibility that Karpov later and Carlsen now possesses.> ...
   Nov-24-14 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
Petrosianic: That's his chances against the Fischer of 1972. who wouldn't have been showing up in any case.
