Jun-09-08  CapablancaFan: The final position of this game is amusing as black MUST lose a piece! If 51...Rxf7?? 52.Ra7+!
Jun-17-08  arsen387: Petrosian with his slow positional style could win the weak black f pawn already after 30.Qh4. After 31.h3 to secure the back rank he could have played 32.Qg5+ and win the f pawn, but as he could take it at any time, he prefered to fix that weakness with 32.Rf4 and maybe here Gligoric made a mistake with 32..Re7 (though it's very hard to find any good moves for Black) which allows whites to obtain a pass pawn on f file with 33.g5, which, though carefully blockaded at first, proved to be decisive in the end. A very instructive game by Petrosian

  wwall: Here is what Gligoric says about the game and, specifically, after move 43.Ke3 "Here a funny situation occurred. I noticed that Petrosian's scoresheet had one move less than mine, so to be safe I made my next move hastily - it was my last mistake. It would have been difficult to save the game, but better would have been 41...R-B2."
