    petrosian is very well known, he was an awesome player.

    Botvinik once said : " If Tal make a sacrifice, take and then analyse. If I make a sacrifice, analise and then take. If Petrosian make a sacrifice, DONT TAKE !!"

    I think he said also something like. "If you play against Petrosian its enough to not make even a mistace, just a little inacuracy, that he will find a way to make you pay that".

    That explains much about "Tiger". His cabability to analise the game was overhelming also for most of the best payer of the time. What said Fisher its another proof of that, and also explain why have some admirers. He's also considered "the most difficult player to beat of all times".

    Kortchmoi on Petrosian

    Now how the hell can I be Petrosian's second if it makes me sick to watch how he plays?

    -----------------

    One cannot help but admire the devilish determination and ingenuity of this man.

    I thought Korschnoi really hated Petrosian on a personal point of view ? If it is true, then that kind of praise sounds strange.

    Perhaps, he said that, before something happened to sour the relationship.

    Or maybe he was just trying to sound gracious, to sell his new book. Who knows?
