henrilin: I think many of us here at this forum care about his games from his tremendous rise to the top 70-72. Believe it or not.
 
   Oct-11-04 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1971 (replies)
 
henrilin: I think it was late in the summer of 1976 after a tournemnet in Holland (The IBM-tournement)
 
   Oct-11-04 Raymond Keene (replies)
 
henrilin: If I can remember correctly Ray, you wrote a book some years ago about strategy and different styles in chess. I have recently had some thought about those issues. Letís take an example: We all know that Petrosian, Fischer and Karpov played great chess. Many people said that ...
 
   Aug-24-04 Reuben Fine (replies)
 
henrilin: Is Reuben Fine perhaps the player with best results against World Champions? Equal scores with Capablanca: 5 draws, Euwe: 2 wins each. And an impressive plus score against Lasker +2, Alekhine +1 and Botvinnik +1.
 
   Aug-23-04 Samuel Reshevsky (replies)
 
henrilin: Well, I checked up the statistics for the World Champions and as a matter of fact Petrosian had victories over Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Spassky, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov. That also makes 8 by my count! Also very close is Smyslov with victories over Euwe, Botvinnik, Tal, ...
 
   Jul-09-04 Yuri Balashov (replies)
 
henrilin: Balashov certainly was among the top 20 from about 1973 until 1983 when he suddenly dropped about 50-70 Elo-points for some reason. He won a couple of good tournements in the Soviet Union but also in the west during these years. Just to mention some of them: Wilnius zt 1975 9/14 ...
 
   Jul-05-04 Efim Geller (replies)
 
henrilin: Hmm, concerning Gellers statistics versus the best players. I imagine that the WC-s are among the best of the best, but suppose you also include his results against some of near misses during, lets say, 1950-1980. Then you have: Bronstein +5 ; -5 ; =15 Keres +7 ; -7 ; = 22 ...

henrilin: Wow! What a guy. He was second after Keres in the USSR ch 1950 and smashed opponets like Smyslov, Geller Petrosian and Averbakh. according to Jeff Sonas he was among the top 10-15 from 1950 upto 1954 when he died 32 yeras old. He was probably as good as Geller and Gligoric by then,
 
   Mar-02-04 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
 
henrilin: The win in the Soviet Ch 1973 was probably Spasskys best effort after 1969. What a tournement!
 
   Feb-24-04 Spielmann vs Alekhine, 1912 (replies)
 
henrilin: I agree Ben. There is a clear link between Capa and Karpov but Kasparovs predecessor was indeed Alekhine. Both play with tremendous energy and ambition in the middlegame and their opening repertoires are broad and well analysed. Another similarity is that they also search for the ...
