  suenteus po 147: I've looked and I've looked and I've looked, but I can't see what the answer is to white's response: 42.Rc2. How does Petrosian win this?
Dec-31-05  aw1988: Re1 perhaps?

  suenteus po 147: <aw1988> I see what you mean! I should have guessed it from the previous position. That's quite brilliant of you!
Dec-31-05  aw1988: Well, it's not so much my brilliance as that is the only move I can find...
Dec-31-05  aw1988: Actually, I was wrong; not Re1, but Rd2.
Premium Chessgames Member
  suenteus po 147: <aw1988> But if 42...Rd2, what about 43.Kc1?
Dec-31-05  aw1988: Ack, I now see the real point of Re1.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: 42...Re1 looks like a winner to me; 43 Rh2 e2! threatening ...Rb1+.
Dec-31-05  aw1988: I rejected Re1 because e2 "loses a pawn".
Dec-31-05  Assassinater: < I rejected Re1 because e2 "loses a pawn".>

How so?

Dec-31-05  aw1988: It doesn't.

  beatgiant: 42. Rc2 Re1 <43. Rc1> repeats the position.

I think the real answer is 42. Rc2 <Ke5>, followed by bringing the king up to support the e-pawn. White will eventually have to give up his bishop for the pawn.
