Jan-25-04  d4Nf6Bg5: why resign here?
Jan-25-04  square dance: Bb5 winning the exchange if the knight moves, and if it does it doesnt have any great squares anyway. if 20...Bxc3 21.d5xN QxQ 22.RxQ winning the knight for a pawn as the c6 pawn should be defendable. if then 22...Rxc6 23.Bb5 winning the exchange. if 20...Bxc3 21.d5xN Qxc6?? 22.Bb5 once again.

  Eggman: This game is the answer to a question posed in the latest issue of Chess UK: who was the only English player to defeat Petrosian?
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Petrosian hated playing moves like 17...f5 and 18...h6. He was probably a bit unhappy with himself at the end.
