Jul-17-03  aulero: <> The current game and the following are the same Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1979
Jul-17-03  MCTREZE: It's interesting to see how tactical Petrosian could be. He was regarded as a secure positional player but his games show a lot of very clever difficult combinations.
Jul-17-03  ughaibu: I think he played it on a long ear.
Jul-09-08  Ulhumbrus: On 32..Bg6 33 Qc3 threatens 33 Bxh6 as well as b3 trapping the N on c4
Mar-15-12  Garech: Another fantastic game from this pair - this one definitely has GOTD potential - I will recommend now. Cheers,


Mar-30-13  Rick360: Who said Petrosian's games were boring?
