|Oct-05-04|| ||RonB52734: This game is discussed in Susan Polgar's "Opening Secrets" column in the new issue of Chess Life. Looking at the Opening Explorer , while the text move in this game is a loser for black, the alternative suggested by GM Polgar, 11...Qb8, promises at least a draw for black. |

|Dec-04-06|| ||mrbiggs: Why 16...Nf6 ? g7 protects the pawn and doesn't allow the eventually winning attack.|
17...h6 seems weak as well, allowing White to capture g7 and further his attack. A quick Fritz analysis doesn't even list it in the top 10 moves.
Am I missing something?
|Dec-28-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Twice (once as a pseudo-sac) Tal takes advantage by capturing pawns that look unsafe to take and most people wouldn't even consider. Looks like good puzzle material.|

|Oct-12-09|| ||chillowack: Back then, many players were probably not yet aware of the utter folly of pawn-grabbing against Tal. In this game, Nei does everything you *shouldn't* do vs. the Wizard of Riga--and thank goodness too, otherwise we'd have missed this gem. :)|
|Nov-05-10|| ||sevenseaman: The purpose of 17. f4 escapes me. The ultimate insulation that forecloses any pesky interference?|
|Nov-06-10|| ||Sastre: 17.f4 traps the Black bishop and threatens 18.Kxh2.|
|Jun-14-11|| ||vulcan20: @mrbiggs Actually, Nei's idea of ...Nf6, allowing the queen to take on g7, and then ...Rg8 is a good desperation try.|
17. Qxg7?? Rg8 18. Qxf6 Bxg2#(!!) shows the nature of black's counterattack. It's easy to stop; even 19. Qxf6 should be good enough to win, but it's better than taking the path that loses the least material but still loses.
|Feb-17-14|| ||MountainMatt: I just saw this game the other day (it is featured in Eric Schiller's "World Champion Openings") and I immediately thought, regarding the position at move 19, "this is Wednesday puzzle material!". I'm surprised it hasn't been tapped for that yet...just goes to show the wealth of great combinations that have been played over the years.|
|Feb-17-14|| ||PJs Studio: The finish is quite the mauling:
21...Kd7 22. Qf7+ Kd8 23. Qxg8+ Kd7 24. Qf7+ Kd8 25. Qf8+ Kd7 26. Be8+! Qxe8 27. Qd6+ Kc8 28. Qc7#
