Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-05  Backward Development: the win was 83.Rg8! Ba7 84.Ra8 and after the exchanges white wins the pawn endgame easily.
Feb-10-05  aw1988: LOL, what a game. Typical Petrosian.
Jul-22-20  Retireborn: According to Larsen in his book, the final position had to be adjudicated by Szabo. Not difficult, says Larsen, who implies the variation 82...Rb7 83.Rg8 Bc7 84.Ra8+ Kb6 85.Kb4 as Zugzwang.

Black should not have lost though. There seems no reason not to play 71...Rxf3, and 73...b5+ 74.Kxb5 Kb6 is another possibility.

The position is gone after 75.Nd8+!
