Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-06  TheKid: Nice exchange sac and then he exchanges Queens at the end to go into a successful king hunt.
May-03-06  Milo: It's not an exchange sac, as he gets two minors for the rook. The king hunt at the end is rather amazing.
Jul-01-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: impressive play by Tal...i knew white was lost,so i wanted to see how this would have concluded...and i did!!.....if this was a puzzle i wouldn't have gotten it either
Jul-24-14  sfm: When you play a move like 14.-,Rf8 you are either a genius or a beginner.
