Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-16-10  xombie: Very nice system of development which I am probably going to use in my own games. Black adopts a dutch formation with d6, e6, f5. It seems that white using up a tempo to play Qc2 helps black in getting e4 control. Also, notice how Petrosian gets hold of d4 later on. The pawn push 28 ... f5-f4 removes one of the defenders of d4 (obviously not gxf4 which weakens kingside even more than it is). Black voluntarily creates a hole on d5, which is not exploitable for tactical reasons owing to the attack on h3-and he seals it with Nd4 soon after. Another masterclass instructive game by the champion.
Apr-16-10  xombie: I am a little baffled by what Petrosian's continuation would have been if white had played 22. h4 instead of 22. Nf2. Perhaps it would have been the same (Ne6, d4) but here, white appears to have an extra move. Any thoughts?

  NM JRousselle: I think White knew he was lost near the end, so he decided that he was at least going to sac the exchange more than Petrosian!!

  SpaceRunner: Nice Petrosian game 30.g4 ? loses because it creates a bad bishop..

23,- a4 is very subtle weakens pawn c4 and Petrosian starts the threats! Karpov learned a LOT from this guy!! Trust me!
