|Jul-03-08|| ||DiscoJew: One of my favs|
|Jul-04-08|| ||capatal: Tal invariably launched a dynamic and elegant combo on his Chess opponent's attempts to shilly-shally. (Even at the highest levels!)|
We shall not likely see Tal's unique style of Chess genius again - soon.
|Jul-04-08|| ||Calli: <zev22407> I think 11...Re8 is correct because in the 11...Nc6 version, White has 13.Nc2! which should win.|
|Jul-04-08|| ||Pyke: Crushing Victory!|
|Jul-05-08|| ||zev22407: To "Calli" It must be 11)..Re8 first.|
|Jul-05-08|| ||rjsolcruz: The MERALCO Chess Club in Pasig City Philippines is a great fan of the Magician from Riga, former World Champion Mikhail Tal. When is his birthday because we would like to honor him by naming one of our monthly tournaments after him; Tal Memorial Blitz Cup.|
|Dec-13-08|| ||patzer of patzers: What's wrong with 14. Kxe3?|
|Dec-13-08|| ||ozmikey: I think the best move after 14.Kxe3 is not 14...Ng4+, as given by <patzer2> above, but 14...Bh6+. After that I don't think White can survive:|
(1) 15.Ke2 Qxd4 and Black's attack is surely unstoppable,
(2) 15.Kd3 bxc6! with the double threat of 16...c5 and 16...Ba6+,
(3) 15.f4 Ng4+ 16.Ke4 (otherwise 16...Qxd4 as before) Nf2+ 17.Ke3 Bxf4+! 18.Kxf4 Qxd4+ 19.Kf3 Bg4+ 20.Kg3 Qe3+ 21.Kh4 g5 mate (a line given by Len Barden).
|Dec-14-08|| ||patzer of patzers: whoops, i neglected to look at other people's kibitzes :(, however <ozmikey> gave me what i needed, thanks!|
|Dec-15-08|| ||Tal73Student: Nc6 is not a mistake, its a clearance sacrifice the point of which is seen on Tal's 20 ...Re8+. The fact the QR comes in with check wins it for black.|
|Mar-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: e2! Where pieces come to be sacrificed!|
|Jun-16-09|| ||remolino: Unbelievable. I also had not seen this game, as if it was nothing for Tal to compose such a brilliancy.|
|Aug-24-09|| ||Verklarte Nacht: this is what it says of this game at OlimpBase:
"This game was NOT a tournament game, rather a friendly blitz. Jotted by Euwe and then published in the world press it became one of most widely known Uppsala-related episodes."
|Nov-05-10|| ||sevenseaman: Like a man picking up his best possessions and throwing them into a raging fire with apparent unconcern - and still arriving at an alchemy of the desired result. Recondite methods!|
Perhaps the game is rightly cut to size of perspective by the fact it wasn't played in a proper competition. But there it is; the genius for all posterity to marvel at! As chess aficionados we have an ancestor of an evergreen genre to be proud of.
|Aug-19-11|| ||atarw: for Nc6, all i have to say is you've got to be kidding me!|
|Aug-19-11|| ||Fusilli: As a cute detail, both black rooks were sacked on e2, both checking the king face to face.|
|Sep-24-11|| ||gourav27: Tal, you are the king of chess|
|Oct-03-11|| ||pom nasayao: the game is pure entertainment!|
|Feb-12-12|| ||screwdriver: It seems like Mikail Tal didn't follow the rules and principles of chess. He was somewhat of a law breaker. But chess aficionados don't see him as a law breaker, but the law maker!|
|Feb-24-12|| ||reilouco: Yes. 11...Nc6 is a blunder.
Even he knew that a great part of his sacrifices were unsound.
This was one of them. But of course he is still a great player.
|Mar-12-12|| ||screwdriver: A standout performance by Mr. Tal.|
|Apr-13-12|| ||palagalaako: Amazing game! Did he really had everything thought out since his Knight sac at c6? I wish I could play sacrificial chess games too...|
|Apr-13-12|| ||Albertan: Note the two players followed the moves from the game A Zaruba vs J Marsalek, 1954 until White's 11th move.|
|Jun-24-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Stunning! This was a blitz game!!
|Nov-14-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
J Szukszta vs Tal, 1956.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF TAL.
Your score: 39 (par = 28)
