  luzhin: What was Petrosian doing playing in the LITHUANIAN championship?
Oct-04-06  Open Defence: trade mark Petrosyan.. look at the Q side pawn chain :)
Oct-04-06  CapablancaFan: Petrosian dosen't care one wit about castling, in fact, he dosen't even try...and wins the game beautifully!
Oct-05-06  reynolds: 18. ..Nxh5 loses to 19. Qxh5!
Oct-05-06  Open Defence: <reynolds> yes he put his opponents' positions under so much pressure that clear tactics often settled the game..
Mar-20-15  Ladyanavt: <CapablancaFan> its because he doesn't castle that his rook is in position to start the K-side attach after the h4 pawn push.
Mar-20-15  1d410: He could still have castled queenside..

  perfidious: This game serves as an object lesson in the virtues of qualitative development over quantitative: Black's pieces languish on the queenside, quite unable to help their monarch in his time of need, the minority attack never having got off the ground. Petrosian did not even require the services of the rook at a1.
