Jun-10-12  Julian713: Great pun!
Jun-10-12  visayanbraindoctor: <Honza Cervenka: This is definitely an entertaining game but by far not flawless. As it was suggested earlier by others, 30.Rh5! could have won the game for white turning thus 29...Ke6 planned by Petrosian already when he played 27...Kd7 into a clear mistake.>

True enough. However, many players beside IM Cardoso have not been able to nail the Petrosian's slippery king just when it was supposed to be flatlined. First time Iv seen this game and it's a marvelously creative effort from Petrosian.

Cardoso bty should have been a GM, had his prime been in the 1980s and 90s. A lot of GM strength (by today's standards) players at their prime in the 1950s to 1970s could only make it to IM; so strict were FIDE standards then. I believe they had to make at least 3 norms at one point, and the only shortcut way of attaining GM without the above was to get into the Candidates, the way Fischer did. It seems that for a while, as juniors Cardoso was one of Fischer's foremost competitors in the non-European world.

They also need to do it in two (2)years, or else its back to zero if am correct.

Thanks for that additional info <spawn2>.

Nowadays, with less strict standards, we see GMs sprouting like cogon grass everywhere.

With what I regard as the cheapening and multiplicity of FIDE titles, I sometimes tend to think the chess world should simply abolish most of them and just stick to 'chess master'. The multiplicity of chess titles did not exist in the 19th century, yet chess did just fine.

Jun-11-12  LoveThatJoker: <Honza Cervenka: Instead of 29...Ke6 objectively better was 29...Qc7.>

Stockfish agrees that Black had to find 29...Qc7! As after this, Black retains a (-1.53) advantage, at a depth of 19. Thus, 27...Kd7 was not a bad move at all, simply 29...Ke6 - luckily for Petrosian, Cardoso did not spot 30. Rh5!

This said, this is still a phenomenal game from the Ninth World Champion, Petrosian!

  kevin86: Black's king wanders out,then returns to his castling position,though he never castled!

Oct-28-13  ZeejDonnelly: RIP Lou Reed, a rock and roll animal.
Oct-28-13  ChessYouGood: No matter what I did it never seemed enough
he said I was lazy, I said I was young
He said, How many songs did you write
I'd written zero, I'd lied and said, Ten

You won't be young forever
you should have written fifteen
It's work

You ought to make things big
people like it that way
And the songs with the dirty words
make sure your record them that way

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Quel coincidence--I just happen to be playing Big Lou's Rock n' Roll Animal album right now.
Oct-28-13  iking: Cardoso gave Petrosian a lot to think ... a wild wild west
Oct-28-13  morfishine: <Jazzer32> Good point, but I think we can forgive White for "missing" a draw "overlooking" the "saving" 36.Rxf6+ followed by 40.Bd6+!

Its not as if White was under intense pressure and couldn't find an escape

What's not so easy to forgive is overlooking the winning 30.Rh5

  Check It Out: I like fast-forwarding and rewinding this game so I can see the black king take his walk on the wild side over and over.
Oct-28-13  catlover: It must have been frustrating for Cardoso to have Petrosian's king on his third rank, deep in his own territory, without being able to nail the rascal down.

  Penguincw: Ha! Black did a king walk, and was successful, but when white tried it, unsuccessful.
Oct-28-13  Chessman1504: Petrosian... a true genius of defense.
Oct-29-13  Badmojo: Holly came from Miami FLA. Candy came from out in the island.

His chances would have been far better also had he lived and played in Europe, where obtaining tournament invitations would likely have been a simple matter. One can ask Jim Tarjan about that.

<....I believe they had to make at least 3 norms at one point, and the only shortcut way of attaining GM without the above was to get into the Candidates, the way Fischer did....>

In the 1970s and 1980s, that was usually the case, though I believe Ron Henley made a single norm, that being the 1982 Surakarta/Denpasar monster event, which was so long that he played enough games (25) to attain the norm.

A further condition was that, in those days, the norms were required within a rolling period of three years.
