|Apr-24-05|| ||morphynoman2: A very hard job, and a very instructive game.|
|Oct-05-06|| ||talisman: 2-0 against tal in his prime, wow.|
|May-25-09|| ||avidfan: 4 knights line-up for inspection to make a picturesque scene on the board after 29 Kd2-e1. |

Was 28 Nd6-f5 a miscalculation when 28 Nd6-e4 would have avoided the following sequence?
30...Ne5-d3+ attacks White's N/f5 by cutting off protection from the B/c2, winning the resulting exchange.

|Oct-25-09|| ||vonKrolock: <21.♘f3> Here an attacking concept, instead of trying to defend in some way the position to reach possibly a draw... Interesting how this almost works in the sequence... |
<28.♘f5> Suetin pointed out the 'obstinated' alternative 28.♘de4 ♖a6 29.a3 etc, but is notewhorthy that Tal's move gives white a good game in most of the sequences... Then, next move is the key of black's defense and counter strike

|Dec-26-09|| ||jerseybob: There is a reason why Qd2 is usually played by white in the Samisch, and Boleslavsky makes Tal pay dearly for not playing that move.|

This is an oversimplification; the variation with 7....c5 isn't seen much, because it gives White a free hand to play on the kingside in standard Saemisch fashion-he no longer has to concern himself with ....c7-c6 and the opening of the c-file. It's not altogether clear that White needed to play Qd2 (which, as you correctly note, is typical).

|Jan-04-13|| ||jerseybob: Perfidous: Then where in your opinion did white go wrong? If you're looking for clues, check the game Spassky-Tal 1956 USSR Chp, where black(Tal) also played both e5 and c5,but white played Dd2. Now, the e5/c5 combo for black may not be inherently bad - if an opening guru like Boleslavsky plays it it could be playable - but in the Spassky-Tal game, black had no center counterplay and just got crushed on the k-side.|
|Jul-27-13|| ||parisattack: A lovely game by Boleslavsky. Definitely an under-studied, under-appreciated player. The true founder of the Dynamic School of play, IMHO.|
Jimmy Adams' book is an excellent work on Boleslavsky, his style of play.
|Jul-28-13|| ||Benzol: According to the database Boleslavsky had a good record against Tal.|

This game must have been fun to play. 12....e4!? starts the adventures.
14.Qd2 is a good alternative, but after 14....Bg4 15.Nge2 Bf3 16.Rh3 (16.Rh2 Be5) it's probably a draw by repetition with 16.....Bg4.
White looks to have beaten off black's attack by move 20, but black has surprising resources with 20...b5!
By the way, 19....Kh8 is an indirect way of defending the d6 pawn: now, if 20.Nxd6 Be5 wins and white can't bring the rook to g2 with check.
