Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-03  ughaibu: Petrosian played 57.Kd4 presumably in an attempt to win. I wonder what the scores were at the time as the position looks drawn otherwise.
Mar-26-03  Fulkrum: Hmmm, maybe 57. ...Rg8. 58 Rd2 Rg7 is better?
Oct-07-03  patzer2: It's too bad Petrosian played 57. ..Kd6?? here, since the game was otherwise a draw. I'm counting this one as a draw when figuring the statistics on black's winning percentage with 5. ..Bg4, which makes appears to be a good opening choice for black.
Oct-08-03  drukenknight: even as late as move 68, cant he save it?
Oct-08-03  drukenknight: this game bears something in common with this game. They are both exchange Carokanns, with Bd3. Also look how both break down to endgames with all four rooks.

Sultan Khan vs Flohr, 1932

Dec-02-06  arminsson: I wonder if 71. - e4 might not be the best move, aiming at placing the pawns on d4, e3 and f2, playing for a draw.
Nov-17-08  MarbleSkull: What about 77...f2+ 78.Kf1 Kd2 79.Rf5 e3 80.Re5 Kc2 81.Rxe3 d2 82.Re2 Kc1 83.Rxd2 Kxd2

Leaving Petrosian with the win. Or am I missing something? Please let me know!

79. Rxb5 instead of the tempo-wasting Rf5 should win.
