Kibitzer's Corner
May-28-05  ThunderStorm: Very good endgame from Petrosian 43.Rg2+! squeeze the king to the side of the board for a spetacular mate
Jun-09-06  waddayaplay: The follow-up 44.Rg5+ and 44.Rf6# is more expedient though.

  Richard Taylor: Yes good game - both good comments - Petrosian missed 44 Rg5+ but that happens.
Jan-19-18  bobbysebas: It is mentioned in Alberick O'Kelly's book about Petrosian. This match shows the patient and mercylessness counter-attack by Petrosian, when the first piece is captured (19..., Nxg3). Then, the Bishop captures the Rock during the play 23, Queens are removed, and the advantage is evident in the following five movements (after 32.Bxd2)
