Oct-04-05  templayer64: Petrosian could play like Tal. Wonder what happens after 17... fxe5 ? Probably 18fxe5 Bc7 19Nf6+ Kh8 20Nxe8 and then e6 followed by Rf7 ?
May-16-06  mormonchess: I could be wrong, but I believe that Spassky said that Petrosian could play like Tal, but he simply chose not to. I'll look it up because I read it in Volume 3 of Kasparov's "My Great Predecessors".

In fact, when one examines many of Petrosians early games (40s to early 50s), one sees much of Tal's combinatorial prowess. However, Petrosian switched and became more subtle and long term. I think it was more suited to his personality.
