  kevin86: An odd finish:White has a great knight and black a bad bishop. White cannot win because the position is TOO tight.
May-22-05  skyman: i bet it was a good game; why did Petrosian die so soon? he was a formidable stgrong player in his teens.
Apr-07-08  Knight13: <White cannot win because the position is TOO tight.> White cannot win because he can't put his knight to good use and his rook can't get in Black's position. Black has a bad "good" bishop, if you know what I mean.
