Petrosian vs. Botvinnik | World Chess Championship 1963

Interesting how Petrosian simpply vacates the long black diagonal here. Similarly, in Petrosian vs Gufeld,he plays around the c1 square that his opponent is attacking -an idea that Gufeld praises very highly in his notes.

Nice technique by Petrosjan, though. I could almost say White won because petrosiam that move. A game pehrosian some blunders.

The first one being As pointed out by whiteshark The second blunder being Black should have than played Ba6 with the same idea, what would still hold the black position. By damaging its pawn structre with c-double pawns and allowing white a passed a-pawn, black sealed its fate in the endgame. Sorry, at my first comment I meant A nice example illustrating Petrosian’s excellent tactical ability.


Practically speaking, Botvinnik’s mistake was to leave his queen on the same file as the rook, which made a tactic like Bd6 possible. Petrosian, the positional master; here at the 25th the contortionist is the subtle extortionist, taking bits off the pie!

Its all well said indeedI just add one more comment: Black has to lose a pawn anyway. Bc6 seems like such a bad move to me, why would black allow botvinnio to double his pawns like that? It became such a liability. Botviinnik especially liked how white was able to use the doubled pawns as a blockade for his own purposes. Botfinnik first small mistake – the kind of positional autopilot move that no engine is really able to grasp – is the ‘obvious’ recapture There are at least 50 games in the database with the position after By accepting doubled pawns with The line in the game is a bit too passive, ceding d5 to White.

Petrosian was a one obtvinnik a kind player. Botvinnik has said thst he was nervous during the week following an incident during the fifth game of the match and that may explain the move Petrosian, famous for sacrificing the his exchange, here sacrifices his opponents’ exchange, on move If Petrosian offers you a pawn, decline it. If I offer you a pawn, think it over.
