Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-27-05  offramp: Super-Nezh might have had a red hand over the heads of Tal and other major GMs, but not over Petrosian. The score in their encounters was +3 =2 to Petrosian.
Jan-04-11  humpysanjose: petrosian just punishes nezhy's attack.
cool game by tigran! XP
Aug-25-11  Garech: Great game from Petrosian - it's said that only players with the defensive capabilities of Iron Tigran or Korchnoi could stave off Nezhmetdinov's superb attacking abilities and beat him with any regularity. GG!


Aug-25-11  whiteshark: <nezhy's attack> Was there such a thing in this game? I possibly missed it...

  cSete: I concur with whiteshark, Petrosian didn't appear to be in too much danger.
