   Petrosianic has kibitzed 9852 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-27-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Petrosianic: What contention? That it's a waste of time talking to him? I could have told you that.
   Aug-26-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Petrosianic: <When Boris seemingly sacrificed his Bishop with his twenty-third move, I almost wet my pants!> We really didn't need to know that. Especially since for the players themselves, the game was already over by that point. What did you expect? 23. Qxb5 Bxb5, and White has both ...
   Aug-25-14 A Pomar-Salamanca vs Petrosian, 1970
Petrosianic: <A die hard Petrosian fan (count me out) could make a case that it was not Petrosian's fault for these draws, it was his opponents for being to scared to tackle head-on.> It was his fault, or rather the fault of his mindset. Petrosian treated chess as a science rather than
   Aug-22-14 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Howard>: <I'm afraid that Petrosianic is incorrect in claiming that Fischer didn't play any competitive chess during the rest of the 1970's, after 1972.> Although I'd agree that the Greenblatt games weren't "competitive" (three games played in private against a ...
   Aug-21-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Petrosianic: KK-I fizzled, but KK-II through KK-V pretty much lived up to the hype.
   Aug-21-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: A lot of the usual careless errors you get when non-chess magazines try to write about chess. But they made a mistake I've never seen before, claiming that Fischer beat Keres at Portoroz, when of course Keres wasn't even there. They were probably confusing the Interzonal with ...
   Aug-21-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Petrosianic: I think Karpov also described Fischer as the last of the "Old School Champions", who worked mainly on his own. Players are backed up by teams of analysts these days.
   Aug-21-14 FIDE World Championship Tournament (2007) (replies)
Petrosianic: Here's a story about that. Radjabov had challenged under the "2700 Rule", and been accepted. But when Topalov lost the title, Radjabov lost his shot.
   Aug-20-14 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1969 (replies)
Petrosianic: I'm looking at it now. I believe the winning line is 52. Ra7 f4 53. Re7+, forcing the King in front of the pawn. Kf3 and now maybe 54. Kxb3. I think White is still on top here, though it's more difficult than I remembered, and Black may still have some resources. That was the ...
   Aug-20-14 Kirsan Ilyumzhinov (replies)
Petrosianic: <This is what the Kirsan mafia wants i guess. A west asian monopoly on chess events.> They may not WANT it. It may be that it's just too hard to get backing anywhere else. FIDE is a joke in a lot of places, thanks to articles like this: ...
