   Petrosianic has kibitzed 13803 times to chessgames   [more...]

Petrosianic: <saffuna>: <But no Democratic Congress has ever shut down the government, or even threatened to.> Half right. They've done it, but they just haven't threatened it, or taken the blame for it. They did in fact shut down the government this last time, and the ...
   Oct-25-16 Spassky vs Karpov, 1982
Petrosianic: <Howard: First, I've never heard any claims about Fischer's 11-0 score being "suspicious" in any way. It may have been somewhat of a fluke, but Fischer probably did it far and square.> That could be because you hang mostly around Americans. I've lived in Germany and other ...
   Oct-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Petrosianic: You missed the most important part: They wouldn't have agreed with it if they had known.
   Oct-25-16 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1962
Petrosianic: <Absentee>: <It wouldn't be surprising. It's a very un-petrosian like game.> It seems that way at first glance. 15. Bxf7+ would be very un-Petrosianlike if the move were speculative. If you look at it closely enough to see that it wasn't speculative and that the ...
   Oct-25-16 Petrosian - Spassky World Championship Match (1966) (replies)
Petrosianic: Maybe Spassky was selling himself short. After 1969, he did go through a 3rd, 4th, and even 5th series of candidates matches.
   Oct-24-16 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999
Petrosianic: The real bummer is when that loss defines you. Just off the top of my head, both Kieseritzky and Napier are best known for games they lost.
   Oct-24-16 Karpov vs Topalov, 1994
Petrosianic: Hasty Generalization Fallacy
   Oct-24-16 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: <thegoodanarchist>: <Thank you for the reply, but I am not sure what it has to do with the topic we were discussing, i.e., facts we know regarding why Fischer stopped playing.> It demonstrates rather conclusively that Fischer didn't stop playing because of a failure ...
   Oct-21-16 Spassky - Tal Candidates Final (1965) (replies)
Petrosianic: Spassky was probably thinking in terms of maintaining momentum. Especially because Petrosian was the kind who often played for a draw right after a loss to try to regain his equilibrium. Spassky's plan was easy draw in Game 20, then try to take the lead in Game 21. ...
   Oct-20-16 Short - Hou (2016) (replies)
Petrosianic: <capafischer1: He mate me I guess you don't simply understand 25 points higher in fide with tons more experience is hard to overcome. Remember fide points not USCF points which can fluctuate greatly. Simply put, Nigel is the stronger player.> Aww, come on. Say something ...
