   Petrosianic has kibitzed 14375 times to chessgames   [more...]

Petrosianic: <WannaBe>: <Heck, one time Uncle Joe Stalin got a 60 minute standing ovation. No one's broken that record, yet.> One guy only applauded 45 minutes, and went skiing in summertime in Siberia next week.
   Feb-28-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: For that matter, he's had trouble even PLAYING games. There have been exactly two World Championship matches that averaged less than 30 moves per game. Anand was involved in both.
   Feb-22-17 Palma de Mallorca Interzonal (1970) (replies)
Petrosianic: <Some of those tournaments are pretty weak. I think he had one or two equal firsts as well.> His only equal first was Mar del Plata 1960.
   Feb-07-17 O H Labone vs NN, 1901
Petrosianic: <Fusilli> <lol... Yes, one of those too good to be true games, whose authenticity is absolutely impossible to track.> What's too good to be true about it? Black is actually won at a couple of points. Instead of 13...Qxb2, Black is much better with 13...Bc5. But ...

Petrosianic: And many more!
   Jan-26-17 Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Rematch (1986) (replies)
Petrosianic: <todicav23>: <Kasparov is really a bad looser for accusing Karpov of cheating by having access to his preparation.> Possibly he is, but your actual arguments are nonsense. (No Black Magic was used, therefore no theft or prep occurred. That's a complete non sequitor.)
   Jan-25-17 Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Quarterfinal (1980) (replies)
Petrosianic: All the Soviets did. Losing to Korchnoi meant unpleasant repercussions at home. But another factor is that Petrosian was in his 50's when this match was played, while Korchnoi, though almost as old, was at his peak.
   Jan-23-17 Fischer vs Ivkov, 1959 (replies)
Petrosianic: Petrosian played it with some regularity. Alekhine dabbled in it, but not what you'd call regularly.
   Jan-19-17 Robert Huebner (replies)
Petrosianic: He didn't. You're thinking of the 1991-1993 cycle.
   Jan-18-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1960 (replies)
Petrosianic: <That's what I thought—until Deep Blue, when he folded like origami and choked like David Carradine.> ...In one game out of 12. Kasparov actually has a winning record against Deep Blue, you know.
