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
Grandmaster Varuzhan Akobian shows two games played by former World Champion Anatoly Karpov. Karpov achieves strong positions out of the opening and quickly dispatches his opponents. Akobian recommends re-watching the two games; see if you can recall the moves.

Anatoly Karpov vs Alexander Beliavsky, Linares (1994): E06 Catalan, closed, 5.Nf3
