Nov-16-03  ughaibu: Because(?) Tal played against the pieces rather than against the pawns it's often difficult to figure out what he's up to. This game has wide ranging manouvres and two exchange sacrifices.

  Eggman: I think this game is probably from the Montreal World Cup, in which Tal tied for first with Karpov. 1979 was an excellent year for Tal: by the January 1980 list, Tal had pushed his rating up over 2700, and was ranked second in the world.
Nov-16-03  Spitecheck: Even more amazing given Tal's constant fight not just on the 64 squares but with his own health.

Jun-12-08  dTal: indeed, I believe that if not for his ill health he would now be regarded as the greatest in history..
