|Aug-06-04|| ||Gbness: Yep, Tal would be lost, especially if Zilber could manage to capture the a-pawn and h-pawn. After a rook manages to capture the second a-pawn and they traded rooks, indeed, Zilber would win... good play by both, though. |
|Nov-03-06|| ||technical draw: 27.Rb1? Probably the losing move. An exchange of rooks would lead, at worse, to a draw.|
|Oct-01-07|| ||sanyas: The Russian player in the park, played by Vasek Simek, who holds up the sign "For $5 a photo or a game with the man who beat Tal," was based on the real life of Israel Zilber. Zilber, Latvian chess champion in 1958, defeated Tal in 1952, and during most of the 1980s was homeless and regarded as the best player at Madison Square Park. |
