Kibitzer's Corner
Premium Chessgames Member We just got the games in from the Petrosian Memorial. Note that Karen Asrian actually finished with 6/9 as the game Ghaem Maghami-Asrian was decided 0-1 by forfeit.
Mar-19-04  Kandelabr: Ghaem Maghami lost his last game by forfeit, because Iranian Foreign Office had not let him play it (why?!). If Maghami had drawn his game against Asrian, Macieja would have won the tournament.
Oct-07-07  pawnofdoom: Haha. Theres a Tigran Petrosian playing at the Tigran Petrosian memorial...
Oct-09-08  offtherook: How intimidating would that be, to show to play a game at the Petrosian Memorial and see that you have been paired against Tigran Petrosian? Of course, it would have been much better if Petrosian had actually won the tournament.
Jul-22-14  GumboGambit: Plenty of irony here.

TLP should have demanded the first prize award: "Its MY tournament, and if you really want to commemorate me, you will give it to me"

  perfidious: Fair enough, but what if Mikhail A Botvinnik turned up at the tournament hall and offered Petrosian a duel to the death? Would we then have a reprise of 1963?
