|Jul-11-06|| ||offramp: I always find it amazing when a hugely complicated tactical free-for-all winds up in a drawn rook ending. A bit like Spassky vs Fischer, 1972.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||Confuse: wow i commented on this game in may? when i look at it again its still impressive. thanks for the insight <whatthefat>, i never actually came back here, my humble apologies : (|
|Jul-11-06|| ||dakgootje: Very impressive draw this is! what i wondered: if 21. Qxa5 then probably Bd4, but isnt that still playable after 22. Be3?|
|Jul-11-06|| ||Castle In The Sky: A story about Tal and Koblents, is that Tal enjoyed having Koblents sing to him when Tal trained for his championship matches against Botvinnik. This was one reason that Botvinnik chose the location of his room more carefully for their second world championship. During the first match, they were stationed on the same floor.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||kevin86: Tal and the Dutch Defense-a wild and exciting combo.|
Here,even his opponent gets into the action. Once he lent a rook-then regained it. Tal comes back with a near rook sac-its capture meant immediate mate.
The ending was a meager rook and two pawns vs a rook and two pawns-similar to lead after the radioactivity of the uranium has used itself completely.
|Jul-11-06|| ||ARTIN: ug, I don't think 26...Kh8 does it. What about 27. Qd4. I don't see how black can get out of it.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||ughaibu: ARTIN: Yes, that looks strong.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||bumpmobile: <Tal and the Dutch Defense-a wild and exciting combo> Amazingly, Tal never lost when he played the Dutch.
|Jul-11-06|| ||Shajmaty: <al wazir: 11...Qxe4 12. Nh4 Qxh4 13. gxh4 Bxh4. Black has ++ vs. . It doesn't look hopeless.> Right: 14. Be3, Nc6; 15. d5, Ne5; 16. dxe6, Bxe6; 17. f4, Nxc4; 18. Bd5 and the position is even.|
<dakgootje: if 21. Qxa5 then probably Bd4, but isnt that still playable after 22. Be3?> 21...Bd4? 22. Be3! and Black has not enough compensation for the pawns. But Tal, definitely, should have played 21...Rxf2!!
<ARTIN: ug, I don't think 26...Kh8 does it. What about 27. Qd4. I don't see how black can get out of it.> 27. Qd4, Rd3! Maybe <ughaibu> was right...
|Jul-11-06|| ||ARTIN: Shaj, I think black can at most get a draw after 27. Qd4 Rd3. I mean for sure after 28. Rxh7++ white gets at least a draw. Though it's not unlikely that 28. Qxe4 is also good for white|
|Jul-11-06|| ||blingice: I'm a bit confused. I think I'll go stumble off in a daze.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||randytaylor2006: I have what must be a dumb question...why doesn't black play QXe4 on move 11?|
|Jul-11-06|| ||whatthefat: 12.Nh4 and the queen is trapped.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||randytaylor2006: After that though, QXd4 is covered by the knight.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||whatthefat: Huh? 11...Qxe4 12.Nh4 and where does the queen go?|
|Jul-11-06|| ||randytaylor2006: Queen takes d4, covered by the knight.|
|Jul-11-06|| ||ARTIN: well, randy, you can't exactly take the rook on e4 and play nc6 at the same time ;-)|
|Jul-11-06|| ||randytaylor2006: LOL....good point....guess thats why i cant get above 1500........and thanks whatthefat for trying to enlighten me.|
|Jul-12-06|| ||Ultra: 12 Nh4 is met by ...BxN. Queen is not trapped.|
|Jul-12-06|| ||randytaylor2006: Bravo to you.|
|Jul-12-06|| ||whatthefat: <Ultra>
You mean: 11...Qxe4 12.Nh4 Bxh4 13.Bxe4 ?
|Jul-15-06|| ||blingice: That's EXACTLY what he meant.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Shajmaty: <ARTIN: Shaj, I think black can at most get a draw after 27. Qd4 Rd3. I mean for sure after 28. Rxh7++ white gets at least a draw. Though it's not unlikely that 28. Qxe4 is also good for white> 28. Rxh7+, Kxh7 leads to a draw (no more!), but after 28. Qxe4, Rd2 I prefer Black. 26...Kh8 is also playable in such a position, definitely!|
|Mar-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: LUCKY, hear? :D|
|Aug-13-10|| ||TheRavenPK: In "The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal", this game is called "Three rooks sacrifice".. It was a training game between young Misha and his trainer, Koblents...|
I consider this game to be such great that I immediately after seeing it learned to play the Dutch :D Not strong, but interesting opening...
