May-31-05  Snow Man: This is one to study.......Petrosian was the mack daddy.........
Mar-25-06  Nezhmetdinov: This is a superb performance from the big man. Petrosian is the most refined of all champions.

He is the most refined in what way?

Mar-25-06  TaricHall: I think korchnoi should have kept playing, despite Petrosian's clear advantage.

  tamar: It is just too easy a position for Black to win <TaricHall> How for example does White protect the h4 pawn after 41...Bf6

42 Ng5 Bxg5 43 hxg5 Rc6 44 Rxc6 Nxc6 and the knight is murder against the weak pawns.

Mar-26-06  Nezhmetdinov: <Everett> Refined as in pure - he makes few, if any, nods to the overpraised idea of "Universality" in chess, but does his best to turn every position into HIS type of postion - he forces his opponent onto lines that suit him and his, at times, baffling manouevering power. His best games make an impression upon me not unlike art and, much as I love the games of a Spassky or Karpov, they do not seem to have been as perfectly wrested from their opponents, made their's alone; Petrosian does this for me.
Mar-26-06  Brown: <Nezhmetdinov> That is an excellent idea you espouse. Do you find Tal's work the same way, but (obviously) not on as deep a level?
Mar-27-06  TaricHall: <tamar> Thank you for your good analysis, I appreciate it:)
Oct-28-06  DUS: has a game of 1966 Petrosian-Kortschnoj, 1:0, which is not on databases.
Oct-30-06  Nezhmetdinov: <Brown> I like Tal - but he is the love of my childhood - i am 34 next week and Tigran suits me now. Perhaps Capablanca before I enter my dotage?
May-29-07  russep: Isn't the usual move 12. e5?
Aug-16-10  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 12 exd5 is 12 e5 as in Lasker vs Teichmann, 1909
