Its time for you to read.
> Oh . Yes. Many don't understand his Maneuvers . This thing is not going inside Tano's brain
Because you are mixing 2 different ideas (waiting for the opponent to blunder and his strategical style) again and again and again.
> His strategical style makes opponent blunder at some time
Now it is sometimes...Why didn't you write this at first instead of writing the nonsense that he just won because he waited for opponents to make mistakes. You could have written that his strategical style sometimes forced opponents blunders(which is still a simplistic analysis but more accurate that what you wrote the first time)
>Why didn't you write this at first instead of writing the nonsense that he just won because he waited for opponents to make mistakes.
That is what I said. That is why I said his style is dull and the most unpopular. If you dont get it then My post is obviously nonsense for you and I can't do nothing. Even I had highlighted that in my wiki post.
Just to prove yourself right you are not considering wiki which is 100% correctly written!! wtf ?
Where in that sentence there is a reference to his strategical style?
Our Discussion started from about Tigran's style which i posted in response to Uly's comments and you asked me why . I am talking to the context.
Why should i mention again ?
Besides your other contribution is calling Petrosian style boring which denotes your chess knowledge
Read the Highlighted terms here in yellow then say . All the GMs who have played him has called him boring.
How can you challenge my knowledge when you dont know about him. You go and search and you will find every one who played him called him boring in that era.
Do your homework first.
> All the GMs who have played him has called him boring.
By the way DID YOU READ WHAT WAS WRITTEN IN YELLOW ?
Come to the point. Don't be afraid to be proved that you are wrong, B'coz you are wrong.
With that respect your personal views are worthless in this context.
The best Book wriiten on Tigran is :- Tigran Petrosian - His Life and Games - Vasilev. - Bratsford Chess,London.
Here is what its written.
>style is not important strength is and Petrosian was a hell of a strength player.
Did I deny that ?. How can I?. He was a Class player.
I posted Tigran's name when Uly commented on Houdini that it has a boring style , waits for opponent blunders then attacks severely.
They Have similarity. Houdini is the Strongest Engine on earth now. Still many here don't like it. Many dont understand his moves. Just like Petrosian. There is no thought that Petrosian was Tactical Genious. Thats why he sniffed opponent plans easily.
Note :- I am firm admirer of A.Nimzovitch. when teaching prophylaxis to my students I make them play Petrosian Games. As petrosian was a firm admirer of Aron. But my students Don't like those games. Rather They want Alekhine, Fisher or Keres games.
>We agree at last
Agree ????? I have been saying that from the very first post. I have studied him ,Morphy and Nezmetedinov's games more than anything.
Its your problem to understand what I replied to Uly's post.
>It seems to me it just plays solidly and waits for the opponent to make a mistake, then it heavily punishes it, it doesn't seem to me a Gambit engine at all.
>Perfectly Said. That is why GM Petrosiyan was the most Unpopular WC of chess
So you still say that Petrosian just waited for opponents to blunder. That is your first stament. After all you have posted you still adhere to that comment?
So you still claim he just waited for opponents to blunder? Yet none of the references you have quoted confirm this.
>So you still claim he just waited for opponents to blunder? Yet none of the references you have quoted confirm this.
What ?? None ? . Haven't you Read my posts ? what did i posted here from wiki ?
"Personally, my favorite Petrosian book is TIGRAN PETROSIAN: His Life and Games by V. Vasiliev (1974, 247 pages, English descriptive, hardback). The game selection and notes are excellent, and the biographical material is detailed and vividly brings the legend to life. Sadly, this one is also out of print and hard to obtain."
The book is unavailable. Why don't you put here the direct quotation from the book, or scan the page and attach it here like I did.
So i advice you read the book : Tigran Petrosian - His life and Games. The best book on him with manuscript by petrosian himself.
Read Chapter 5- Safety First , Page 56 and Chapter 7 - Tal comes and Goes , Page 87 ,
Then argue with me further.
