Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-11  ewan14: Rather impressed by Petrosian's king side pawn advance
Oct-28-13  Zugzwangovich: Ray Keene had this interesting comment on this game in "The 1974 World Chess Olympiad": "Ivkov's superficial conduct of the opening can possibly be attributed to the state of the match: this was the last round, and the USSR had already gained the gold medals. In fact the other three games of this match were quickly drawn, but Ivkov was unaware that Petrosian needed a win to secure his board prize from the clutches of the Australian Woodhams, who was scoring points like a forest-fire in Final C. Peacefully inclined himself, poor Ivkov had to face a tiger, ravenous for his blood."
