Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-08  arsen387: This game is perfect example of Petrosian style. He smothers Larsen's pieces and the latter to release the tention first sacs an exchange and then a piece and remains with nothing. Outstanding game by Iron Tiger!
Apr-30-09  shalgo: Fantastic play by Petrosian after Larsen's error 10...cxd5? (If Larsen had played 10...Bd7 11.Rb1 cxd5 12.cxd5 b5, he would have been fine, as he later played--even a tempo down--against Polugaevsky: Polugaevsky vs Larsen, 1982).

Here, Petrosian prevents this idea with 12.a4!

Apr-30-09  euripides: <shalgo> nice post and website.

Uusally Petrosian shows his opponents why the exchange matters less than they imagined. Not this time.

Apr-30-09  shalgo: <euripides> Thanks. I will eventually be looking at most of the Petrosian-Larsen games on my site. They are a very interesting collection of games.

  sleepyirv: Wonderful game and wonderful analysis <shalgo>! It's amazing how many queenmates Petrosian pulled off in his career.
May-01-09  AnalyzeThis: Black's c8 bishop was pretty useless throughout this game.
Apr-13-11  Tigranny: Isn't 44...Kh6 a blunder because 45.Rc7 traps the black queen? Wouldn't 44...f5 give the queen an escape square?
Apr-13-11  DWINS: <Tigranny>, 44...f5 45. Rh8#
