   Petrosianic has kibitzed 11125 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-04-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: <In which case, they should have voted in favour, and put the ball back in Bobby's court.> Why? They already put him badly behind the 8-ball as it was. Fischer had intended to give up the title over the Unlimited Match Clause, which would have been highly debatable. With ...
   Mar-02-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: <Personally, I think that would give the Court more work than it can handle. It already takes an average of six months to decide any case that comes before it.> That's what I was thinking. They'd never get around to those initiatives at the rate they go now. <Require ...
   Feb-27-15 Fischer - Larsen Candidates Semifinal (1971) (replies)
Petrosianic: He won 2 games from Evans. 13 is the number he won from Bisguier.
   Feb-26-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
Petrosianic: It used to be common to see the word Tbilisi Anglicized to "Tiflis". Since the T isn't silent in Tiflis, it shouldn't be in Tbilisi either.
   Feb-25-15 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
Petrosianic: <He chose to sacrifice it to set up a winning attack.> Again, it's debatable if it's a sacrifice <at all>, if you get more than a Queen's worth of material in exchange for it. If I give up a Knight, that's not a sacrifice if I win a Rook at the same time.
   Feb-25-15 King's Gambit Accepted (C33) (replies)
Petrosianic: <What is your opinion about Bronstein's Kings Gambit parties in the 1960-70 years?> The punch and hors d'ouevres always ran out too early.
   Feb-24-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Sally Simpson> <Zukertort's on and off the board exploits make for an interesting and entertaining life.> Depending on how many of them you believe. Seeing that huge list Chernev published as fact years ago, I've often suspected that Zukertort had a wee bit of the ...
   Feb-24-15 Fischer - Taimanov Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) (replies)
Petrosianic: It's definitely a more impressive score. (We're committing a fallacy of equivocstion here, by using the term "shut out" to mean both "faililng to win a game", and "failing to score" interchangeably). We're also conflating candidates events with world championships. There's no ...
   Feb-24-15 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
Petrosianic: <kingfu>: <Would someone please explain why Anand's rating went DOWN 6 points after winning Zurich , average rating 2787, with 2 wins, 3 draws and no losses?> A person's rating goes down when he fails to score as highly as the rating system predicted he would. ...
   Feb-23-15 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
Petrosianic: <plang> <Why? What about the Karpov - Korchnoi match - the format worked there.> Because the format doesn't work reliably. It's not a strong enough endorsement to say "It's only a disaster SOME of the time." I assume you're talking about Karpov-Korchnoi 1981. The ...
