Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-06  KingG: Another famous Petrosian exchange sac. Petrosian commented that <He offered a draw. There is no sense for White to reject this offer; he has no reasons to play for a win.>

It's a shame, because the position looks very interesting. White has all the active possibilities, but it's not clear if he can do enough with it to win.
