  GrahamClayton: Black probably wished he had a dark-squared bishop once Tal started marching his King up the board.

  Castleinthesky: This game is Game 2 in Irving Chernev's The Most Instructive Games Ever Played
Dec-20-14  Howard: It's not only Game 2, but it turns out that Lisitsin was also in Game 3 ! He lost that one too.
Feb-09-16  Timi Timov: That 16...Qb6 , lol... Lisitsin was afraid of Tal' s tactics capacity
Feb-09-16  Timi Timov: 17... Qb6*
Feb-09-16  RookFile: Lisitsin played a good game in defeat.
Nov-19-16  clement41: A classic yet effective and pretty king march by Tal! I liked the tactical defense 17...Qb6!? because it's psychologically strong, kindof ignoring white's threat and going ahead with his own agenda instead
Mar-15-17  Toribio3: In this game, Tal played like Petrosian!
Feb-27-18  Howard: But, exactly where did Black go wrong in this game?

As much as I've always liked Chernev's MIGOCEP, he's rather negligent in that book as far as explaining just where the loser went wrong. This game is no exception !

Mar-02-18  Howard: And the computer concludes.....?
Mar-13-18  Howard: So, exactly where did Black go wrong ?

Chernev hardly gives a clue !

Mar-13-18  Retireborn: 28...Bxd3 29.cxd3 Nf5+ 30.Kc5 Re6 should draw comfortably, I think.

Also more active rook moves like 29...Re1 or 35...Rh2. Black seems not to be lost until he exchanges knights on move 38.
