   EdZelli has kibitzed 73 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-28-20 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1967 (replies)
EdZelli: Facts and opinions are two very different things: Below are some of Petrosian's records. Facts: 1963 Won World Championship 1966 Successfully defended his title. * Didn't put his tail between his legs and run-off. Beating Boris at his peak must have grueling. The match is still ...
   Jun-07-20 Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Quarterfinal (1977) (replies)
EdZelli: tonsillolith Wrote: Petrosian was washed up at this point, so it's not a big surprise Korchnoi beat him. ----------- You're clueless. 1972 San Antonio shared 1st 1973 Amestedam shared 1st 1975 Soviet Champion 1st place 1979 Rio Interzonal shared 1st 1979 Keres Memorial ...
   Jul-08-18 Curacao Candidates (1962) (replies)
EdZelli: Bobby's Rambling Nonsense was a ploy to shift the blame for his 7 LOSSES. Bobby was the punching bag in Curacao. He got crushed by Tigran, Benko, Geller ... and still cried foul. Eight years later in 1970 Bobby CHEATED his way to the candidates tournament (ie. never qualified, Benko
   Aug-11-17 Tigran V Petrosian (replies)
EdZelli: "During tournament analysis sessions players all speak at once, but whenever Petrosian said anything, everyone would shut up and listen." – Yasser Seirawan This is perhaps from Seirawan's observation at Lone Pine in 1970's.
   Aug-07-17 Ivanchuk vs Short, 1995 (replies)
EdZelli: offramp:Poor Nigel Short. I think every phrase, proverb, adage,... Nigel got the "Short" end of the stick here ;-)
   Mar-25-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
EdZelli: Bobby would always moan and groan for more money. Ironically, when the big payday arrived in 1975, he put his tail between his legs and ran off scared out of his pants. There is only one reason for why he fled, Bobby had always tracked Karpov's games (* even a decade later when ...
   Jan-27-17 Second Piatigorsky Cup (1966) (replies)
EdZelli: <offramp>: Tigran got his revenge later in 1966 Havana Olympiad by winning the first place gold medal at table 1 with Larsen, Bobby, Portisch, etc present. Tigran repeated his success again in 1968 Olympiad with same players (Larsen, Bobby, ..) present.
   Nov-16-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
EdZelli: Obviously Karjakin can defend like the legendary Tigran. Now he needs to reach into his bag of tricks and pull out some exchange sacrifices, king walks, ... to send Carlsen packing.
   Jul-04-16 Phillips & Drew Kings (1982) (replies)
EdZelli: Tabanus:"What has Fischer to do with it anyway?" Don't you know? Bobby's grandma used the bathroom at Phillips & Drew's building 50 years earlier ;-) On a serious note, it is customary in to sneak Bobby's name in all 70's and 80's tournament intro(s) irregardless. It ...
   Jun-12-16 USSR Championship (1965) (replies)
EdZelli: Another inaccurate/half-baked and incomplete intro. 'Twenty of the Soviet Union's best masters and grandmasters competed' How about Thee Very Best (ie. World Champ in 1965). Why isn't his name mentioned?
