|Jul-31-03|| ||Brian Watson: If 15...g6 16.Nxh7 Kxh7 17.Qh5+ Kg1 18.Bg6 fg 19.Qxg6+ Kh8 20.Qh6+ Kg8 21.Qxe6+, n'est pas? |
|Nov-14-03|| ||Kansas Player: You have to love it! *sighs* The beauty of a well-played game... *wipes tear from eye* |
|Dec-25-03|| ||rndapology: Brain...19...Kg8 of course, after that however...tal can check again, bring the bishop up for a mate threat, and then prepare a discovered attack, very well played by Tal. |
|Aug-18-04|| ||Peter Trujillo: Tals opening was very strong. blacks play was very bad right from the start.
20...Rxe5 was the final mistake. the loose rook announces the following bishop sac. All of whites sacrifices are very simple. this just shows you how not to play the black side of this opening. |
|Aug-18-04|| ||Shadout Mapes: A footnote, the interesting 15.Bxh7+, while not as strong as in the game, also seems to lead to a good position for white.|
15.Bxh7+ Kxh7 16.Ng5 Kg6 (forced) 17.h4 Rh8 (what else?) 18.h5+! Rxh5 19.Nxe6 fxe6 20.Qg4+ Rg5 21.Bxg5 Qxg5 22.Qxe6+ Kh7 23.b4 Bf8 24.f4 looks winning. Of course, Tal's 15.Ng5! is much stronger.
It reminds me of 19.Ng5! in Capablanca - Shroeder (which I just noticed is not in the database, so I will submit it).
|Dec-06-04|| ||chess man: tal is the master of sacrifices and he is also my favorite player! |
|Dec-18-05|| ||Chopin: 19. b4 is a brilliant move- the bishop is lost. After that, the end is near.|
|Mar-28-06|| ||uergash: Combo after combo leaves black exhausted!|
|Mar-29-06|| ||HannibalSchlecter: I notice Tal usually doesn't come out swinging in the opening, he usually saves that part for the middle game. As Fischer said of Tal,
"How does Tal win? He develops all his pieces to the center and then sacrifices them somewhere."|
|Mar-29-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Fischer also said (joked), "Tal wants to win every game with one move."|
