Mar-25-03  ughaibu: Petrosian's speciality, the exchange sacrifice.
Jan-12-06  offramp: There are two exchange offers in this game, the first comes after Petrosisn plays 31.Nd6+.

It looks to me as if Kortschnoi has no choice but to take the knight with his rook as Nxf7 is threatened anyway.

The second offer comes as Petrosian plays 37.Nd5 - possibly in time trouble.

After Kortschnoi takes the knight he has a won rook and pawn ending.

Along with Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1965 this game was part of the Leningrad-Moscow match. Petrosian, as world champion, must have been annoyed to have lost on top board 2-0 to the great Kortschnoi.
