Sep-21-04  Giancarlo: Ray, was this the game you were talking about where you pressed Petrosian's clock and lost?
Sep-22-04  suenteus po 147: This is an amazing game! GM Keene, you must have had alligator blood to play out the game as long and as evenly as you did, against Petrosian of all people! This game is also fascinating in that I wouldn't even know where to begin analyzing it. This game, like almost all of Petrosian's games when he's facing a worthy opponent, feels way over my head.

  ray keene: it was indeed-it was one of the later time controls. we were playing 40 moves in two and a half hours and 16 per hour thereafter so it was probably in the run up to move 88 .i was amazed that such an experienced player as petrosian shd forget to punch his clock-especially when so short of time.
Sep-22-04  clocked: black could have played 17...Bf6 as the d6 pawn does not need protection. For example, 18.Bd4 g6 19.Nxd6 Nxf3 20.exf3 Qa6+ 21.Kg2 Qxd6 22.fxe4 dxe4

72...Rxh4 may have been the last best chance
