|Feb-22-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: c5-square. That's where any king isn't too safe in mid-game.|
|Feb-22-06|| ||Mostolesdude: I dont think black can prevent white's next move without losing material.
|May-25-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: A real, "Jason meets Freddie."
(Friday, the 13th - vs - Knightmare on Elm Street.)
|May-25-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: OK. So where does Black go wrong?
|May-25-06|| ||Open Defence: I don't know what theory says about this opening and I am not a very strong player.. but 10..b6 even if it has been played in master games does not seem best and 11..♘e8 does not seem the best.... even if Black can hold ..1. e4 c5 2. ♘f3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. ♘xd4 ♘f6 5. ♘c3 e6 6. ♗e2 a6 7. O-O ♗e7 8. f4 ♕c7 9. ♔h1 O-O 10. a4 b6 11. e5 dxe5 12. fxe5 ♘fd7 13. ♗f3 ♗b7 14. ♗xb7 ♕xb7 15. ♗f4 ♘c6 16. ♕f3 ♖fc8 was played resulting in the position of G Timoshenko vs Suba, 1996 and no doubt that game would also have to be analysed....|
|May-26-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Open Defence>
I would have to agree with you that 10...b6 is the first move that Black makes that one can cast a suspicious eye to. (After a day of study, all the other moves look 'book' or at least, pretty routine.)
|May-26-06|| ||euripides: 10...Nc6 would be one of the main lines of the Scheveningen. King annotated this game in his 'How good is your chess' column in 'Chess' and suggested <Open>'s 11...de followed by 12...Nfd7; he also suggested 13...Bxh2, I think.
It's an instructive game - Black slightly loosens his influence on the central squares and Tal spots an opportunity.|
|May-27-06|| ||whatthefat: This is a brilliant game from Tal! After black goes astray, white passes up several opportunities to cash in with a clear advantage, all so as to catch the king!|
|Jun-02-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: To me, it is a chess game that almost defies rational thought. Black plays one variance from 'book' ... and Tal immediately whips out his chainsaw and begins sawing off branches ... |
Is "GENIUS" too strong a word here?
|Jun-02-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: How HERE's a game that would make an excellent "Problem of The day."|
|Jun-02-06|| ||zev22407: It is the "hurricane Tal"|
|Nov-16-06|| ||Tariqov: <lifemaster:Black plays one variance from 'book' > i don't think he did, he played one Out of the book which was Ne8!?.|
|Nov-16-06|| ||Petrocephalon: 17..Bg3 was an interesting move.|
|Jul-22-12|| ||DrChopper: Black can't move his knight on d5 because of Qd6 and must watch b4.|
31.Nc6 32.Rxd5+ Kxd5 33.Re3+ Kd4 34.Qd4+ and white take the queen.
31.Nc6 32.Rxd5+ Kb6 33.Qh6! Qxc2 34.Qe3+ (Ka5 35.axb5 axb5 36.Ra4 mate) Kc7 35.Re7+ Nxe7 36.Qxe7+ Kb6 37.Rd6+ Ka5 38.Qxb7 etc...
