  ArturoRivera: who was Gutnikov believeng, that he was Tal, all the game he tried to MIMIC his style!

  Cyphelium: Firstly, I don't think that white's play in this game is that similar to Tal's; even when he was young he was unlikely to play an opening like the Belgrade gambit. Ususally he developed quite calmly and started to sac things well into the middle game. Secondly, I doubt that people were that aware of Tal and his style back in -51, when he was still in his early teens. Probably Gutnikov just liked gambit play and wasn't trying to imitate his young opponent.

  Honza Cervenka: 9.0-0-0 was a mistake. Much better seems to be 9.gxf5 Bxf5 10.0-0-0 with excellent compensation for sacrificed material. Gutnikov's sac of Queen was an interesting attempt but young Tal refuted it by giving back of some material.

  ArturoRivera: <Cyphelium> first thing, i am aware of your points, second thing, dont think tal started to sacrifice until move 25 or so, he usually sacrificed pieces in move 15, third point, what i said about mimicing tal was SARCASTIC! get it?

<dont think tal started to sacrifice until move 25 or so, he usually sacrificed pieces in move 15

I think that can be disputed, but ok I won't push the issue.

<what i said about mimicing tal was SARCASTIC! get it?

Ok ok! I get it. =)
