Design a Chess Game
If some kind soul could translate this…especially Tigran's banter near the end.
karpov is also an holder of a degree in economics.A very bright and gentle man.
This video is a jewel
Somebody PLEASE translate this. I'd love to know what "Iron Tigran" is saying to Vaganian while they're playing blitz; it's easy to tell Petrosian's having fun, alright.
4:55: Petrosian says that Vaganian intends to go for perpertual and laughs at the idea (5:01) like a ''young man" was too naive to even think of that; then he says something like "why to give a patzer any chance, right, Semyon Abramych?" (5:07) and plays one of his famous defensive moves eliminating threats.
5:29: he says "now young players tend to calculate everything before sacrificing material, but in the good old times they would sacrifice first and think later", obviously implying that chess had been more romantic before.
Karpov's reaction @ 1:06
pay attention to a guy who's watching the game. This is S. Furman, Karpov's coach.
Iron Tigran was virtually unbeatable in blitz, particularly in the early 1960s
Damn….how could Karpov fail to be a great player – he attended Botvinnik's Chess School and here he's hanging out blitzing with Petrosian…..JEALOUS!
Is that GM Vaganian sitting there with them
My anus itches.
avec moi il irait fumer ailleurs …
Ein Beweis dafür, daß Karpov der Protege der sowjetischen Parteilinie war! Absurderweise sieht man die generischen Züge nicht – Ziemlich lächerlich
und nur nebenbei gesagt, sein Gegner ist nicht T. Petrosjan (Ex-WM)! gehaltlos der Mist1

Priceless footage. Karpov seemed to have been annoyed with Furman. 😊
Nice to see a film of Petrosian. The man looked like a character.
😔 This video not show all subtitles, ¡only Russian!, even though english language is available. 😔 Thanks for your help!
"Petrosian was a phenomenal blitz player. He would eagerly enter into complications he wouldn't dare to enter in serious games. He would find way out of forests of tactical confusions displaying great virtuosity. When you see him play blitz like this, you realize how phenomenal a talent he was" – Jan Timman (best of the west in the 80s :))
For the record: Both Petrosian and Vaganian were recruited in the 1980's by the KGB as informants.
Interesting black and white video. It's historic. Greetings from the Chess Lab. Laboratorio de Ajedrez
Such a great historical video!Thank you very much
Love those old school Soviet chessmen. So distinctive with the contrasting finial caps. Adore playing with my own knockoff, incomparable to the original one sees here.
R they playing with the Dubrovnik set
