   Apr-16-18 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974
yiotta: <" decisions are born in torments..."-Tigran Petrosian> Tell me about it! Well, I suppose it's nice to share SOMETHING with a world champion. Perhaps torment avoidance is the reason some players bang out twenty moves in five or ten minutes and only start to think after ...

yiotta: <post count gets the chicks?>...and I thought strong and silent was the way to go...
   Apr-13-18 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 (replies)
yiotta: If I were negotiating odds from Petrosian, I would start by prohibiting king walks exceeding two squares. And no exchange sacs! Make him play chess like a real person!
   Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: Yes, Grischuk showed great patience in a display of endgame mastery. Many baffling moves. Shereshevsky would have been proud of his performance.
   Mar-19-18 Ivanchuk vs D Wagner, 2018
yiotta: 53...Qc7 is an error possibly caused by time trouble. After 54.Qa4 Black's pieces are badly placed and he has no time for the necessary gxh4. After 54...Ra8, our Stockfish9 doesn't see the winning combination and suggests 55.Qxb3.

yiotta: <keypusher> Indeed!
   Mar-12-18 P Napetschnig vs F Rhine, 1977 (replies)
yiotta: A fitting fate for those who insist on playing the Bird.
   Mar-04-18 G Meier vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: <MekkiAlgeria> I think it will be very similar to the game.
   Mar-03-18 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
yiotta: <Zanzibar:...But I wonder, if such an avid minds-eye is also a curse of sorts. How does one turn it off?> There's a video showing Ivanchuk after a defeat. The camera stayed on him for at least seven minutes. He sat in utter despair at the table for maybe three minutes, then the
