    This was a great game and great commentary too, it was good to see 2 players who have had some theoretical influence over queenside fianchetto systems face off against eachother, with Petrosian having his system in the QID and Larsen with the Nimzo-Larsen attack (aka QIA) and because I play both of these the video had some extra personal value to me. 2 players whom without their play I wouldn't ave my current repertoire!

    A very entertaining video Cool

    It's impossible not to like Larsen once that you see his games!

    My favorite aspect of this game was how black's queen defended the entire queen side from a6 and was still coordinated with the knight on f5 to threaten a royal fork on e3!

    Yes!! This game where Larsen put the bear hug on Petrosian; something very special about this from the 2nd Piatagorsky Cup in Santa Monica, 1966.  What a great game! Thanks for sharing this masterpiece from the Great Dane!

    One of Larsens best games. He lovd to show it. Note the possible ending after resignation. Petrosjan should had let Larsen play move 64, one of the best moves never played due to resignation.

    62 Nxf3  Qh3+

    63 Kf2   Qxg3+

    64 Ke2   Qxe3+ !!

    65 Nxe3 Nxd4+

    66 K      Nxc6

    65 Nxe3 

    PS. I am not premium member and saw only the free part.

    Thank you for this video. It was very instructional and entertaining to watch. By watching this second video in the series Bent Larsen has now become my favorite chess player. I hope you make further fantastic videos.
