Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-05-06  Karpova: Does anyone know more about his match versus Petrosian in 1951? Mukhitdinov was from Uzbekistan and lost +0 =6 -6
Dec-07-09  M.D. Wilson: Only that it was a mismatch.
Jun-29-10  Petrosianic: It was some kind of Master's Candidate Match. Mukhitdinov was the pupil and had to score a certain amount to get the Master title. (I don't know what he needed, but I don't think he made it.) Petrosian wrote somewhere that certain wise guys (I think the word was translated as "wits") said of the match that ended in a draw: 6 of each result (since Petrosian hardly ever lost even that early in his career).
Feb-09-14  offramp: Petrosian himself said that the score was +7 =7. (p 96, Botvinnik-Petrosian 1963, New in Chess).
