  suenteus po 147: Interesting. This doesn't strike me as a technically won endgame. Are Petrosian's connected passed pawns decisive in the final position?
Dec-16-05  iron maiden: Together with the third passed pawn that Black will get after capturing on a3, sure they are.
Mar-24-10  Garech: Petrosian playing the French is literally awesome - he has got brilliant creativity. Can't get enough!
