Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-26-05  mormonchess: Observing this game, one can't help but wonder if Petrosian was toying with his opponent the whole time. Petrosian squeezes Black like a python, and then plays a fun game of cat-and-mouse.

Petrosian is not one of the more popular world champions, but I continue to be astounded at his depth of position understanding and strategic insights.

And this game is yet another example of his boldness with his king.

Aug-26-05  Runemaster: Yes, a display of great control from Pet. This gives an idea of how tough it must have been to play against him at his best - as soon as you think of something, he's already blocked off the possibility.
Dec-12-10  xombie: The ending could well have been Capablanca. It's the middlegame that is most difficult here. I'd almost always give counterplay or end up blocking the position.
