Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-06-04  InspiredByMorphy: This should make game of the day sometime! A truly unique approach to the evans gambit from Tal, using his king to fight!
Mar-06-04  Brian Watson: interesting game
Jul-30-08  dTal: Typically imaginative strategy from the most talented player in history! This was well before his "wonder years" showing a glimpse of the magic to come!
Sep-15-08  pom nasayao: Black's 9.__ Kxe7 demonstrates the playful nature of Tal as if he was telling while making this move: "no matter how unconvetional my moves are, you still can't win."
Sep-15-08  0817: Besides the fact that 9...Qxe7 is a mistake in view of 10.Qa4+
Nov-26-08  DrGridlock: I'm not sure how "unconventional" Tal's Kxe7 was. Fritz values that continuation at -.50, with Qxe7 and Bxc3 at 1.94 and all other continuations at +2 or greater for white. The king capture at e7 is the only move which gives black an advantage, and by a fairly wide margin.
Jul-04-11  ahubers: Ditto to Gridlock. Capturing with the queen would have lost the bishop. Lost the game pretty immediately.
Aug-09-11  kitbitzer31: After 8...Nb8, why not 9.Qa4+, thereby winning the bishop on a5?
Aug-09-11  kitbitzer31: Oh yea, I retract my previous comment because of 9...c6
Mar-20-13  gargrajesh: why not 38.Nfe7+,Kf7 39.Qe6+,Kg7 then R*e1.....i think it would have been a slightly better position
