Feb-23-04  Legend: Keres is better than Tal!! Hehe... Count the sacrifices he made here, is it a record?

  fredthebear: Astonishing sacrificial play by the Estonian Paul Keres!! He serves up spicy deflection sacrifices to manipulate the White queen temporarily out of the way so the Black queen can do her thing.

After 18...QxRe1+, it initially appears Black will have to go for the perpetual check draw. No! Instead Keres maintains White's bad bishop and dares to take another three moves to develop his last rook! Keres sees his last rook pin the White queen, leaving the White king with no shelter whatsoever. Now the Black queen will be able to check and fork the remaining White pieces that come loose because the White king is completely exposed. Fabulous tactical foresight by Keres in this burn the boats approach!!

Keres has defeated more world champions than any other player!!

Sep-03-17  WorstPlayerEver: Correspondence I guess.
Sep-03-17  ughaibu: That would also be my guess, if it weren't for 26.Na4, that looks like a time trouble move.
