Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-22-09  birthtimes: In this game, Petrosian shows how to win a queen and rook endgame with 5 passed pawns for a knight!
Dec-19-10  xombie: Fantastic exhibition of attacking chess by Petrosian here. It seems that you can't play the Nimzo and not attack. The whole game was forceful. But take a look at the petite combination 20. Nxf7. 20 ..Rxf7 is refuted by 21. Qxe6 Rf8 22. Qxe7. Trivial but nice.
