  jaime gallegos: a brilliant triumph of Misha Tal, 19. Nf5 is the winning intermediate movement !!!
Apr-12-04  ArturoRivera: In move 15 isnt good bf5 pining the Knight and wining a piece in consequence?

  akiba82: Was Tal already giving simultaneous exhibitions at age 12?
Apr-14-04  Kenkaku: <akiba82> This was most likely just an exhibition game, not from a simultaneous exhibition.
Apr-14-04  ToTheDeath: The date is wrong. It was played in Berlin in 1974.
Apr-14-04  ToTheDeath: If black tries to hold on with a move like 19... Qd7 then white plays 20 Nh6!+ gxh6 21. Qg4+ Kh7 22. Qg5 forcing mate.
Apr-14-04  ArturoRivera: <Kenkaku> f6? couldnt be answer with re1 Your comments are welcome, thanks for the advice, but another question: f6 couldnt be answer with re1?
Apr-14-04  Kenkaku: <ArturoRivera> 16. Re1 Bd6
Jun-22-04  ArturoRivera: ok, thanks kenkaku!
May-17-09  butilikefur: That's hilarious. I thought, could this be? Did Tal miss 16. Bxf8 Nxd4 17. Qg4 winning the exchange?
