Feb-19-03  kostich in time: Is there a misprint in the game score or the diagram..its a mate in one for white in the final position!
Feb-19-03  morphynoman2: You're right, Kostich. A misprint in the score. The right move is 23. Bxc4, and then 26... Re1 check 27. Qxe1 Nf3
Premium Chessgames Member See if this looks better.
Feb-04-05  MoonlitKnight: White obviously forgot to exchange on e8.
Feb-04-05  Knezh: How come Petrosian didn't 21. Rxa7?
Apr-21-05  Marvol: <Knezh: How come Petrosian didn't 21. Rxa7? >

Belated answer: I suppose after 21...Na5 22 Ra1, Rb5 and 23...Qb6, the rook is lost?

Mar-28-06  Resignation Trap: Instead of 26.Bh6??, White should win with 26.Rxe8+ Qxe8 27.Bh6 Nf3+ 28.Kg2 Qe5 29.Ra8!

This game, from the team match USSR vs. Yugoslavia, is an amusing counterpart to Petrosian's memorable blunder against Bronstein just a few months earlier: Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1956 .
