  Everett: More of a stomp than a squeeze, Petrosian walks through his opponents q-side. Of note is the 18.b5 pawn breakthrough which allows an eventual planting of his R on the 7th.

Indeed. In this position:

... black played 17... Rfb8, apparently to get ready for b5, but 18.b5 came anyway, devastating black's queen side. I was wondering if Black could have tried 17...g5 instead, which surely was his idea when he sent his queen to h5, but I suppose 18.Nf1, clearing d2 for the other knight, calls the bluff and Black still has to pay attention to his queen side.

Overall, nice positional demolition.
