  aw1988: 13. Bh6?? Bxh6 14. Qxh6 Qxb2 is winning. 13. f3! looks better.
Mar-30-05  chess man: Yes, castling queenside was rather stupid. Nice game.

  whatthefat: This is a stunning example of deep calculation along a forced line. Amazing as it is, white is lost after 13.0-0-0?? owing to the reply 13...Na6! The knight's incredible journey cannot be satisfactorily stopped, since 14.a3 is met by 14...Qb3! and white's in serious trouble. The final combination is a nice touch.

  Richard Taylor: Incredible! That knight went dancing!!
Nov-23-07  whiskeyrebel: What a belt whipping by Tal!
Nov-23-07  zoren: whats the continuation after 14. ... Qb3 if 14. a3?
Nov-23-07  black knight c6: After 14. a3 Qb3, the threat is Qa2 and Qb1#. This can't be easily stopped, e.g if

15. Bd3 Bxd3 16. Qxd3 Qxb2#

and

15. f3 Qa2 16. fxe4 Qa1+ 17. Kc2 Qxb2+ 18. Kd3 Qb3+ 19. Qc3 (only move) Qxc3#

are two easy ways to checkmate.
15. Rde1 lets the white bishop out to d3 to block black's without being mated, but after

15. ... Qa2 16. Bd3 Bxd3 17. Qxd3 Bxb2+ 18. Kd1 Bxa3

then black is up two pawns for nothing.

Jul-05-08  apexin: fascinating game.

  Garech: Agreed, it was a great adventure for the knight, and forced right from the first check, because 16. Kc2 is mate of course; what a brilliant conception by Tal - he always makes it look so easy and so simple!

  goldenbear: <aw1988> 13.f3, then Qxb2!.
May-08-10  sicilianhugefun: Qxa3!! is indeed majestic!!
Nov-05-10  sevenseaman: For a first time, 27. Qxa3+ is an 'out of the box' idea that is extremely tough to hit any one but a great player.

  wordfunph: black's bishop x-rays a1 square, fantastic 27...Qxa3+!

  Jim Bartle: Castling queenside looks like sticking your head in the lion's mouth. Three black pieces bearing down and few defenders.
Dec-27-14  TheBish: Really surprised this hasn't been a POTD yet for 27...? or even 14...?.
Aug-18-15  Eusebius: What a pleasure to see this Tal playing
