|Nov-21-05|| ||who: Tal never seems to get anything going, and after winning the exchange it seems that the knight is just stronger than a rook anyway. This seems to be how Tal's awful record against Korchnoi started.|
|May-07-06|| ||madlydeeply: Didn't Tal say something like, "there are three kinds of sacrifices, sound, unsound and mine". I guess a great defender like Korchnoi shows that Tal's sacrifices are not in the first category.|
|May-07-06|| ||penarol: <who> In an interview to Tal shortly after he won the WCh in 1960, the Hungarian Dimitri Bjelica asked him about Korchnoi.
Tal answered that Korchnoi was a very fine player and that their score was 5-5: 5 games won by Korchnoi, and the other 5...were drawn!!|
|Sep-04-09|| ||The Rocket: tal said "There are two kinds of sacrifices: sound ones, and mine"|
|May-03-14|| ||sls: D.B. was not Hungarian but Serbian.|

Tal vs Korchnoi, 1955.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF KORCHNOI.
Your score: 62 (par = 49)
I'm proud I guessed some key defending and counter-attacking moves. I only played a bad move once (lost a point) and got no credit once. It's a good way to start my Saturday! I wished I played like Korchnoi. He's one of my heroes.
|Sep-27-14|| ||celtrusco: Sorry, but...
1)<madlydeeply> You can leave out the suffix. 2)< Fusilli> Korchnoi certainly is one of my favourite players too, but he never was a world champion, like Tal, ... playing like Tal, a Semi-god of chess and an artist as well . 3)< Fusilli> La próxima vez te escribo en español¿Tenés yerba mate? Espero que sí. Y felicitaciones por el score, yo no llegaría ni a la mitad.Un abrazo.
|Sep-28-14|| ||Fusilli: <celtrusco> Sure, but if you'll write in Spanish do it in my forum. I do have yerba mate, but I don't really use it! :)|
