Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-08  Nezhmetdinov: This gfame makes me augh - Petrosian assiduously denies his opponant any chances whatsoever, relying on the strength of his position. It is possible he might have won quicker but the style of the winning - it is powerful and historians love the study of power
Mar-12-08  arsen387: I think Petrosian's conscience was asleep during this game. He paralyzed black's game completely and then slowly overwhelmed his oponent. The essence of chess!
