Sep-08-03  doktortarrasch: Please tell me that Taimanov was in time trouble, because 36...Rxf5 was such a heinous blunder, I can hardly believe Taimanov would make that move.
Sep-14-03  drukenknight: it looks like he messed up the q side long before that though. What was the pt. of 22...Na5?
Sep-12-10  Xeroxx: He was dead lost anyway.
