Description:

Grandmaster Var Akobian pays tribute to his countryman, former World Champion Tigran Petrosian. “Iron Tigran” didn’t attack often, but when he did, his opponents were in trouble. Akobian recommends re-watching the two games; see if you can recall the moves.

Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian vs Viktor Korchnoi, Curacao Candidates (1962): A31 English, symmetrical, Benoni formation
Petrosian vs. Rodriguez Vargas: D45 Queen’s Gambit Declined semi-Slav, Stoltz variation
