Dec-14-09  birthtimes: The MASTER at work! You could not improve upon his last 10 moves of this game...and all at a young age of 53!
Jun-28-15  RookFile: This more or less became a Dutch defense. Probably the last thing you want to play against Petrosian. It's not like he's not going to be able to see your kingside attack coming. Meanwhile he'll calmly get to work at carving you up positionally.

  perfidious: Perhaps the interpolation of cxd5 exd5 is an improvement for White over what went in Portisch vs Petrosian, 1978.
Mar-21-20  paavoh: It looks funny, only two changes in White's position between moves 19 and 25 (Qb3-c2 and g2-g3) while Black seems to develop all the time.
Mar-21-20  SChesshevsky: <...only two changes in White's position between moves 19 and 25...>

For Petrosian it seems all about the backward pawn on c7 and getting rid of Bd6 holding everything together. First Ne5 tempting an exchange then the straight B trade. Anything else is probably just to hold the position together.

Maybe an example of what they used to say that once Petrosian got his plan he never veered off it unless absolutely necessary.

Apr-05-20  paavoh: Petrosian had a game (Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974) where <offramp> noted the recurring piece position by Petrosian, gaining the upper hand in the process.
