Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-09-07  greenrook: Petrosian was notorious for slowly squeezing his opponents out of the game, but here Larsen turns the tables and produces some patient endgame play which results in a fine win.
Mar-09-07  euripides: <green> It had happened before:

Petrosian vs Larsen, 1966

I imagine Larsen may be particularly proud of these fine games because otherwise Petrosian had a very good score against him.

  Fusilli: <Eduardo Bermudez: Bent Larsen won in the same tournement to Spassky !!> And seven other players. Larsen won the tournament with an impressive record of +9 =4 -0. As a tribute to Larsen, I reviewed his games in that tournament in my forum, pages 13 and 14. You are welcome to stop by!
