|Jul-20-13|| ||20MovesAhead: this guy was scarily good
were it not for his ill-health he may have been called the greatest ever
|Jul-20-13|| ||parisattack: The second pawn sac - 19. e5 - was very typically Tal, allowing another piece (here, the Queen) to enter the attack.|
|Nov-22-13|| ||Hiatus: WTH is this game???|
|Feb-01-14|| ||Travis Bickle: What a genuis, Qxg7!! I'm sure Tal worked out that attack quite a few moves back.|
|Feb-01-14|| ||Strelets: This is dizzying even by Tal standards. He just never runs out of attacking resources or releases the pressure.|
|Feb-22-14|| ||tranquilsimplicity: <I want this game to be played at my funeral.>|
Ha.ha..ha..he! Who said Chess players are humourless geeks?#
|Apr-28-14|| ||Rookiepawn: Tal makes chess look like martial arts, some Bruce Lee or Jacky Chan stuff... You never know the next move.|
|Apr-28-14|| ||Mating Net: The Bishop b5 is en prise for 7 moves. Clearing the back rank was more important than the cleric.|
|May-13-14|| ||MountainMatt: No rhyme, no reason, no matter.|
|Jun-08-14|| ||crazyim5: Without a shadow of doubt, one of the greatest games of chess ever played. I get such pleasure analyzing this game.|
|Jul-07-14|| ||WJW147: <Sastre: After 21...Nd3+, White can play 22.Kb1 Kf8 (22...Nxf4 23.Qh8#) 23.Bxd6+ Qxd6 24.Qxd6+ Rxd6 25.Bxd3.>|
Well put. I'm sure Tal would have foreseen the possible ramifications of 21...Nd3+
|May-31-15|| ||MindCtrol9: I stop on move 21....Kf8.Why not 21...Ng6 like indoknight says? This Ng6 move is defending and attacking at the same time at least momentarily.Perhaps there is something bad about it, but I don't see it right now.|
|Feb-19-16|| ||peterh99: I'm just a club player but I have to applaud Koblents' defense. Even if he missed the best move here and there, who wouldn't? And he found a lot of resources to last as long as he did.|
|Feb-20-16|| ||scholes: Engines think 21 ..Ng6 gives black advantage|
|Jul-24-16|| ||kingscrusher: reisanibal: Do you have any idea of Mikhail Tal's FIDE ratings even 10 years after he became world chess champion?! |
Check out: http://www.olimpbase.org/Elo/Elo197...
He is rated the same as Anatoly Karpov here on this list. This is more than ten years after he was World chess champion. And yes he has crushed Karpov on occasion.
|Jul-24-16|| ||perfidious: Tal would ascend to yet greater heights, becoming one of very few in those days to attain 2700:|

Dear schachtourist, welcome to chessgames.com. There is much fun to be had here and lots of intelligent comments. I am sure you will enjoy yourself.
I have some bad news, though. Shortly after he posted his comment User: reisanibal left chessgames.com and returned to Turkey. In fact he now lives in Anatolia.
|Jul-24-16|| ||Eusebius: Consequent approach towards g7. And erasing everything around which supports this square active or passive.|

Also proving that the left minor crochet is of no utility in a minor right oblique refused.
|Jul-24-16|| ||perfidious: Franklin K Young would have been aghast at this game, had he lived to see it.|
|Sep-09-16|| ||SpiritedReposte: Complications much? Good grief, would like to see how strong computers evaluate this one.|
Games like this make you realize how crazy chess is. How to possibly see through all those variations??
|Jul-18-17|| ||whiteshark: "I'm pretty sure this is the most complicated game ever played by Mikhail Tal :)" --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxt...|
|Jul-18-17|| ||Honza Cervenka: 32.gxf5! was better than the text, and if 32...exf5 or 32...e5, then 33.Qxg8+! Kxg8 34.Bc4+ with mate on h8 coming soon. Other moves like 32...dxe3 or 32...axb5 are followed by 33.fxe6 with threat Qxg8+ and mate on h8, and after 32...Rd5 white can play simply 33.Nxa7. After 32.Bg5 axb5 33.R1h6 black could have played 33...Qxc6, and black is still alive. 34.Rf6+ seems to lead just to a draw after 34...gxf6 35.Bh6+ Rg7 36.Bxg7+ Ke7 37.Bxf6+ Kd6 38.Be5+ Kd5 39.Rxa7 Qc4 40.bxc3 Qxc3 41.Qxg8 Qe1+ 42.Kb2 Qb4+ etc.|
