Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-24-04  Reti Incarnate: Ah! It appears that, contrary to popular belief, Petrosian was prone to the occasional fit of violence! 18. ...g5, what an adventurous move!
Jun-25-04  Resignation Trap: I believe that "safety first" became Petrosian's motto a few years after this game. Keep in mind that he was only 15 when he played this game.
Jan-30-06  Matein42: Im not sure if petrosian didn't play a safety first game here he calmly traded peices, shut down whites chances on the queen-side and then it was his turn and he most likely calculated most of those moves and knew he would come out on top in my opinion
