Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-08  The Chess Express: An amazing game from two of the greatest tactical wizards ever. After 9. Bh4 the straight forward exd4 would have cut out all the hoopla and given black easy equality. For example 10. e5 g5 11. Bg3 Ne4 12. Re1 (Bc2 13. hxg3 f5 14. Nxd4 Nxe5 15. Qh5 d5 16. Qxh6 Qf6 ) Nxg3 13. hxg3 dxc3 14. Nxc3 d6 =

As natural as 8. Bg5 looks itís probably more accurate to play 8. Re1 first to prepare it. After d6 9. Bg5 white has a better version of the game.

Oct-22-09  pericles of athens: seems like tal should have won this one
Jan-08-18  Sularus: 11. ... Qxf6? [+1.5]

Better was gxh4
