  Honza Cervenka: 29.Rxe8! is a devasting blow which Petrosian had to foresee already when he played 27.Ng4. 32.Rc7 would have lead to quick mate but text continuation was sufficient as well.

"Petrosian, first and foremost, was a stupendous tactician."

I haven't seen this game before and it was great. I think it show's Petrosian in his best form.

I'm guessing Bronstein might have been surprised how powerful the subtle 26. Rc6 and 27. Ng4 turned out.
