Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-06  whatthefat: Was there a single game in either of the Petrosian-Spassky matches, where Petrosian didn't trade queens and both pairs of rooks if given the option?
Apr-06-08  Knight13: Try 27. a4, intending on locking the kingside pawns on the same color as black's light-squared bishop. But that's not useful with that bishop on e8! Petrosian is too clever.
Sep-09-18  Dr.Drunkenstein: Lol...petrosian vs fischer candidates natch game 4 check it out....an english turned into an accelerated dragon of sicilian and the match is the same as this
Sep-10-18  ewan14: Petrosian had stomach ache and in addition wanted to show that he , Petrosian , could draw when playing white
