Apr-12-18  WorstPlayerEver: Part II:

Let us take a closer look at the position after 10. Qd4

It looks like a recent A0 vs SF pos, with the difference that the Soviets were dominant until 1972.

Now let's see what Tal -yes Tal- did in this variation:

1. d4 f5 2. e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 Nc6 5. fxe4 e5 6. dxe5 Nxe5 7. Nf3 Bd6 8. Bg5 h6 9. Bh4 Ng6 #diagram1:

Imagine -it's easy when you try- Morphy played Tal here.... 10. Bc4 #diagram2:

Oh, I know what you're thinking; what an exciting position! Of course Black has better -10. Bc4 Qe7 11. Qe2 Nf4 12. Bxf6 Qxf6 13. Qd2 Bb4 14. e5 Qf5 15. O-O-O #diagram4:

However, the position is still lost for Black despite the effort of two former champs. In other words: 2+2=not 5 in the digital domain anno 2018 ;)
