|Mar-29-03|| ||ughaibu: Another multi-queen game. Tal gets the first check and finishes things quickly. |
|Apr-04-05|| ||chess man: He sure does! |
|Apr-04-05|| ||Kingdumb: What a wild game. I love these shootouts. |
|Jul-01-09|| ||akapovsky: Doesn't nobody notice Tal misses a mate in 1 on move 63:)|
|Jul-01-09|| ||Smothered Mate: <akapovsky> and move 64|
|Jul-11-11|| ||ccmCACollister: I thought he would play the quick win 63.Qc5+ Qxc5 64.bxc5+ Kc7 65.e7! Kd7 66.Kf7 a3 67.e8/Q+ Kc7 68.Qe7+ Kc8 69.Ke8 Kb8 70.Kd8 a2 71.Qc7+ Ka7 72.Kc8 a1/Q 73.Qxb7# or such. But I enjoyed his artistic 4Q ending,& the final position having Mate in sight, not even needing to win the Queen he could take instead.|
|Jul-11-11|| ||perfidious: This is a strange ending indeed, and I'd suspect time shortage played a factor, but it's an odd place to have that come about-moves 63-64 are in the middle of the-then standard third time check from moves 57-72.|
Two other sources give the identical position with Tal to make his 63rd move. More blind copying from one DB to another, or....?
|Jul-11-11|| ||ccmCACollister: Oh LOL, yes. 63.Qa5+ is Mate as akapovsky also mentioned, so I overlooked it too. (Have I studied too many Tal games??!) My friend, has trained top juniors, FM Blankenau loves to say "Always check for check!". Always check your checks, Mikhail; always check for check! Perhaps he just had one winning method in mind, & followed it; overrespected his oppenent a bit to Not Walk Thru Mate in One?! During the time factor then ... Yet Tal did become World Blitz Champion later :)|
