  1. Road to the Championship - Tigran Petrosian
    This is the road taken by Petrosian during his title run. Any games decided by forfeit are not included. Petrosian placed first in the 28th USSR Championship, but tied for second--compared to Fischer's crushing first--in the Stockholm Interzonal with Geller, Korchnoi, and Filip. He emerged the victor over the Candidates Tournament in Curacao, much to Fischer's chagrin (he accused the Russians of cheating, conspiring to keep him out of the championship match). During this time, Petrosian proved virtually unbeatable (losing only one zonal game in the sixth round to Stein) before meeting Botvinnik in the first round. Special thanks to Fischer of Men for the collection idea and format, and special thanks also to Benzol, Poohavez, and sneaky pete for all their help filling in the zonal games for me.
    90 games, 1961-1963
