   Petrosianic has kibitzed 9675 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-23-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: <Absentee>: <What if you were a palestinian living in the Gaza strip?> Then again, you probably wouldn't be happy to see Hamas lobbing bombs and rockets at you. Even if you would sympathize with them if they were lobbing them elsewhere. Unless you were completely ...
   Jul-22-14 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Subjective. I say Fischer avoided it by refusing to simply follow the basic format. I also say the Soviets are to blame because they were pulling strings and playing chess politics with the professional/amateur issue.> Not even subjective. The Professional business was a ...
   Jul-21-14 Peter Leko (replies)
Petrosianic: <Perhaps Leko got demoralized when he lost his chance to be a world champion. He has great chance against Kramnik(needing only a draw in their last game). There are cases of players not being the same after losing matches.> Well, for one thing, Leko didn't lose the match. ...
   Jul-11-14 Spassky - Keres Candidates Quarterfinal Match (1965) (replies)
Petrosianic: <nimh> <I didn't expect my post would offend you so much.> Haven't you muddled this a bit in your mind? All I said, and you quoted it back to me, so I know you heard it, was "it doesn't really work". That ain't exactly hysteria. The hysteria was on your side with the
   Jul-09-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: <Us Fischer geeks wouldn't think twice about reading a 3 or 4 page article on the legend,> You claim to be a Fischer geek, but don't respect his explicitly stated desire to keep his private life private. Being someone that Fischer would shun if he met probably disqualifies
   Jul-08-14 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
Petrosianic: I've been saying that for the longest time. No titles at stake, don't care if it's Blitz, Rapids, or on a scaffold at Wrestlemania. Just get those two together.
   Jul-07-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Petrosianic: <It isn't a science either since it doesn't focus on nor try to explain the natural world.> The word "science" can legitimately be used to describe a methodical activity, discipline or study.
   Jul-03-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972
Petrosianic: <If you think that it's "silly" to complain about a game going on too long, what if YOU are one of the two players and you just wanna call it a day and agree to a draw, but your over-stubborn opponent disagrees and wants to keep shoving the pieces ?> That only applies if ...
   Jul-03-14 Petrosian vs Keres, 1946 (replies)
Petrosianic: The story is from Vik Vasiliev's book. It doesn't say exactly when he lost it, or how long he had it, but yeah, that is a good question to ask. How much of it could he reconstruct? I don't remember Keres' exact score in this tournament, but it was something enormous, like ...
   Jul-03-14 Matulovic vs Fischer, 1958 (replies)
Petrosianic: Not every top player hung on to every game he played. Keres did, but he was remarkable in that respect. Petrosian played Keres in the Georgian Championship at age 17, and was so proud of drawing the game that he carried the scoresheet everywhere until he lost it. 20 year later, ...
