White cannot do nothing very cute:
If 27. fxe3 then 27...Qg2+ 28.Ke1 Nhf3+ 29.Qxe3 Nxe3+ 30.Kd1 Qd2 mate! If 27.Qe1 Bd2 and there's not a satisfactory answer for white. If 27.Ne2, then after 27...Nxe2 28.Qxe2 Qxa1+ 29.Qe1 Qxe1+ 30.Kxe1 Bxf2! black has two connected passed pawns and an easy ending victory of six pawns and a knight against a bishop and two isolated pawns.

  perfidious: An infrequent outing by Tal as Black in a French, but a good display of Black's attacking possibilities.

  sleepyirv: Tal was only 19 when he played this game, and like most teenagers did something young and foolish like playing the French Defense. Naturally he still gets an attack out of it, but I'm glad it was just a phase.
Aug-25-15  Serbon91: <sleepyirv> Explain that to Korchnoi...
Apr-03-17  Toribio3: During his prime, Tal is virtuoso in attacking!
