Dec-09-10  wordfunph: the story behind this game..

A funny thing happened to Petrosian on the day he was supposed to play Kraidman: Tigran did not show up. Everyone else was there and, according to normal procedure, Petrosian should have lost the game by forfeit. It turned out that according to the original playing schedule this was to be a free day. Later the schedule was changed, and everybody knew about it except Petrosian, who on the day of the announced change was somewhere in the city, visiting friends and shopping. Nobody protested, however, and Petrosian was given the opportunity to crush Kraidman the next day.
