Dec-16-10  whiteshark: <Sem> I think the game is technically lost, eg <25.Qe3 Qxe3 26.Rxe3 c5>

and Black can combine threats against the weak ♙b7 and the advance of the passed pawn pair ♙c5/♙d5.

Dec-21-10  Sem: <whiteshark> Oh, I see. Yes, that doesn't look too promising, especially when you're facing Petrosian. Thanks!

  kingscrusher: An "emphatically solid" looking game from first impressions. Perhaps Petrosian's style was a kind of reaction to Mikhail Tal hacking any opening which did have visual "fragility". Here in this game, it seems Black didn't have many worries at all. No King safety worries especially.
