Absolutely! 7..Na6 is the start of a long winded plan to exchange light-squared bishops. 7..g6 at once seems more logical. 27..h5 is criticized by Marovic as creating an unnecessary weakness. Without the second front on the kingside it would have difficult for Petrosian to make progress. Rossetto apparently missed the pretty and immediately decisive move 36 g5!.

Dec-26-07  bystander: <plang> I wonder if black is really forced to play 17...ab5x? After this move, white has an advantage during the rest of the game, and black has hardly any counterplay. After 17...c5 18.dc5x Rc8 19. Qd3 Rc5x it looks like equal play to me.
Feb-23-09  arsen387: A textbook example of a minority attack by Petrosian. 36.g5! was a nice shot. Simple and beautiful, this is how Iron Tiger was winning his games back in late 50s and 60s

  technical draw: A great game. Bide your time attacking the backward pawn until your pieces are in their place then zap! 36.g5! and game over. Bravo, Tigran.
