  kingscrusher: Very logical e5 break preparation by Petrosian. Giving Petrosian a Maroczy bind seems to fit Petrosian's "Python" style of binding generally to reduce counterplay. Perhaps black's best instead of a5 was to simplify the position by taking some pieces on d4 and then maybe a5 after that. But still quite a bit of torture would still be endured after that.
