  whiteshark: There's a special word for such games ...
Dec-30-07  Jim Bartle: Just noticed this is called the "Quiet System." Just shows to go you...
May-13-10  BillTaylor10: maric: fast elimination.. got great tactics
May-13-13  BlackSheep: The Iron Tiger slain in 25 moves now thats a rarity . One notable game from Maric but I bet he recounted it on many occasions .
Oct-12-13  jerseybob: Jim Bartle: You took the words right out of my mouth. When these "quiet" systems work, they really look great and make me wonder why go into the heavily-analyzed Austrian Attack.

  perfidious: In one of Nunn's monographs on the Pirc, he pointed out that the idea of 1.dxe5 dxe5 2.Qd6 is usually harmless, as the cheeky invader can be driven back by ....Re8 and ....Bf8. If Petrosian had played for that in this instance, however, he should soon have come into difficulties over the coordination of his pieces.
Oct-12-13  jerseybob: perfidious: Is that analysis in the Nunn book or something you found on your own? Either way, how about a few sample moves?
Oct-12-13  parisattack: Nunn authored or co-authored several Pirc books. Perhaps the observation was in the New Ideas volume?

<Tigranny> aptly noted to this game - Larsen vs Petrosian, 1966 - that Petrosian was prone to playing aggressive openings somewhat passively - and getting in trouble thereby.
