Daily Chess Puzzle: Tigran Petrosian

February 27, 2018

Chessbase recently had a news item that Tigran Petrosian has appeared on one of the Armenian bank notes.

Note

I decided to try to find the games pictured on the note. Using Megabase 2018, I think I have done.

Game 1

Strangely, both these diagrams are from the same game.

Petrosian v Botvinnik, game 7, World championship match, 6/4/1963 Moscow

I will show the next position tomorrow. For now, a puzzle from this seventh game.

Solution

1 c5! and after 1…d5 2 Bd6! won the exchange.

I have never studied the match; I see from Megabase that it ended after 22 games, Petrosian +3, with two to play.
