Dec-12-04  chess man: A marvelous game displayed by Tal.
May-28-09  ToTheDeath: 18.Bg5 f6 19.Bf4 Ne5 20.a5 looks necessary to restrain Black's queenside play. Once he gets in ...b5 Black is already better.

Tal handles the resulting complications masterfully, especially the simplifying 33...Rxf4!, consolidating his advantage.

May-02-14  sicilianhugefun: Someone from the Elite scene should demonstrate the Modern Benoni once again... Same goes with the King's Indian defense where it outsmarted the the Viking recently thru the hands of its flag bearer.
