Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-27-09  birthtimes: Petrosian plays a Benoni, trades off his good bishop, is victimized by a knight sac on his castled kingside, moves his king to the queenside, and winds up creating a passed b-pawn while restraining White's passed h(g)-pawn...
Nov-18-15  zydeco: That's what you get for a dubious sacrifice against Petrosian -- rock-solid defense and a won endgame. If 30.Nxf7 Nf6 and black takes the h5-pawn.
Apr-29-17  hudapri: Surprisingly the computer likes White a lot at move 37, Qf3 would have been stronger with the plan of piling up on the A-pawn. And after Ng7 that priceless pawn just became worthless. Must have been a time trouble slip.
