I can only suppose this is a rhetorical question, but there is something strange about the last moves of this game. 30.Kd3?? would have been a huge blunder for a player like Tseshkovsky. Yet Petrosian didn't play 30...Rf3+. It's always possible that both players were in terrible timetrouble, but I suspect there is something wrong with the gamescore.

  Benzol: <Garech> <nescio> Tseshkovsky lost on time according to Vol 2 of The Games Of Tigran Petrosian. The gamescore is incorrect at move 30. It should be 30.Ke2 not d3. I will submit a correction.
Feb-08-15  Everett: I enjoyed Petrosian's "yeah so" 12..0-0 to White's k-side demonstration.

  kingscrusher: In case anyone is wondering why White would allow Qxg3 wrecking his pawn structure, it seems black has resources across the h8-c1 "diagonal of death" e.g.

17.Qh3 Bxc3! and if Bxc3 then Qf4+ being dangerous for picking up the f3 knight
