    I read somewhere, very likely on here.

    That when they did a 3 match up with Petrosian's games it scored very low.
    But that was using an old version of Fritz. The stronger (and I suppose better)
    these machnes get the higher Petrosian scores.

    It was quite a jump if I recall.
    It appears at his peak he was 30-40 years ahead of his time.

    I'd imagine Tal too would score pretty low, easpecially in his early days.
    But for for different reasons.
    Maybe not.
    He sacced from sound positions (then came the dodgy move) after that
    it was all usually all perfect.
    So he would have one perhaps two nil top 3 moves then as his games
    were so finely balanced tactcial (usually only one way.) 100%.

    Be interesting if Zigzagski (I've forgotten his name again)
    Ran a batch of Petrosians games on a Fritz8 and then on a the latest Rybka.

    this dude is Armenian, his father was so taken by the real Petrosian that he named his
    kid Tigran after the world champion, did the young man not just become a
    grandmaster. I wonder if there are any other chess playing Anatoly Karpovs, or Gary
    Kasparovs that are also GM's, check out the Popov v Caruana game on the European
    championships, quite an interesting game by GM standards

    The wrong Petrosian. 🙂

    Brilliant.

    Zigzag when you run the numbers make sure you get the right Petrosian.
