Tigran Petrosian – A caricature & a game

I had done a short Tribute to Tigran Petrosian who was World Chess Champion a few weeks ago.

This is what was in the book and I decided that I had to do my own caricature of Tigran Petrosian!

There was one game in this book that I thought you might enjoy.  Tigran Petrosian is Black and plays the French Defense against Vlastimil HortPetrosian gives up his Rook for a Knight and gradually goes on to take over the whole board with his classical constrictive style.
