Mar-12-09  AnalyzeThis: Horowitz made a mistake in sending his queen off into a far area of the board.

  Chessdreamer: 35.Rg1 is a typo for <35.Bh5>, allowing a mate in one move -35..Qg2. Black found another way to win <35..Nf2+ 0-1>.

  Sargon: An anonymous tipster commented: <Mutual oversight of mate in one— 35...Qg2— really happened. Petrosian himself annotated this game for the Shekhtman book "The Games of Tigran Petrosian Volume 1: 1942-1965">
Nov-21-15  zydeco: A pretty mate would have been 35.Rg1 Nf2+ 36.Kh2 Ng4++ 37.Kh1 Rh2#
