   Petrosianic has kibitzed 15706 times to chessgames   [more...]

Petrosianic: <maxi>: <It is strange that in Keres' long and opinionated article (cited by <Jonathan Sarfati>, Keres talks about everyone and everything, yet could not give an opinion about who was to blame for the failure of all attempts at a rematch between Alekhine and ...
   Jun-29-18 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Petrosianic: Well, let's ask that question next. Let's take all of the draws and ask which player was pressing in each drawn game. This does NOT necessarily mean that the player was winning or even close to winning. Just who had the better end of the draw. I'd make it like this: Game 4 ...
   Jun-29-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Howard>: <Did Spassky have any probable win in this game? He was, after all, the exchange up and he definitely blundered into a three-fold repetition.> In addition to having a pawn for the exchange, Black had the advantages of a) a solid position with no penetration
   Jun-28-18 Gligoric vs Mecking, 1972
Petrosianic: This game was Gligoric's attempt to improve on Fischer-Spassky, Game 5. Instead of 14. fxe5, which left White's Bishops passive, 14. f5 opened the game up more. White gets a good edge, and is maybe close to winning at a few points, but couldn't bring the point home.

Petrosianic: Now that being said, don't count Crowley out yet. They may find some way to cheat Ocasio-Cortez out of the victory yet, like Murkowski did after she lost a primary. Even if Crowley doesn't run a write-in campaign, he's bound to try again after a 2 year holdiday, so I wouldn't ...

Petrosianic: <ewan14: Bb5 in the overrated 6th game was not as good as it looked> Are you sure about that? You sound like you're guessing.

Petrosianic: Do you want to assign all four boards and reserve through the US Championship results, or only Board 1?
   May-09-18 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1971
Petrosianic: <ughaibu>: <Korchnoi has been a fairly popular player, I've never really understood why, his play seems artificial to me. Petrosian on the other hand has been a fairly unpopular player yet his style produced many attractive games.> Many attractive games, yes. But he ...
   May-07-18 Fischer vs Larsen, 1966 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Toribio3: Fischer was outplayed by the great Danish master, Bent Larsen!> As long as you're just telling us what's on the scoresheet, you forgot to mention that Larsen was Black, and the game was played in Santa Monica. In Round 6.
   May-07-18 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Petrosianic: I called both matches that. Neither player was a champion, and the match hadn't been played yet, so there was no rule for naming it that I could see, other than what sounded good. For some reason, Spassky's name almost always sounds better in the second position. I guess because
