Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-05  lentil: this is the game that clinched suttles' GM title
Jun-19-06  madness: It was actually the draw against Hort two rounds earlier that got him the GM title, but apparently there was some doubt about this at the time. Having been screwed out of the GM title four years before on a bogus technicality Suttles wasn't taking any chances.
Jun-19-06  RookFile: Well, Petrosian must have been peacably minded, and not feeling like grinding Suttles down on this day.

I immediately thought of Petrosian's win over Sax as an example of what happens when the sleeping giant is awakened:

Petrosian vs Sax, 1979

Aug-31-06  sixfeetunder: Petrosian vs Sax, 1979 was played in the last of a tournament when Petrosian needed to win to get the first place.
Aug-31-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <Having been screwed out of the GM title four years before on a bogus technicality>

<madness> Sounds interesting. What exactly happened?

Apr-11-08  Petrosianic: Whatever it was, it couldn't have been nearly as bad as the technicality that screwed Frank Ross Anderson out of the GM title. I still think they should give it to him posthumously.
