|Jan-24-06|| ||whatthefat: This is an unbelievable game. I've gone through it a few times now, and I'm still a little uncertain as to what's objectively going on. I suspect that 19.Rhe1 is an error, but I think a computer needs to analyse the game.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||jackmandoo: O.K.! I'll get to it, I have a few more to analyze but mabye I can do this one in between bites on my lunch break.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Agree completely! My mouth was actually wide open in the middle game! Definitely one to save. Tal's wins in the late 50s/early 60s are simply amazing.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||malvolio: looked like Tal was playing at both sides of the board!|
|Jan-24-06|| ||MoonlitKnight: I hadn't seen this game before. It looks like a real gem. The problem with 19.Nxg7+ is that after Kf8 20.Nf5 Qxf4+ black wins the knight and has a winning material advantage. So Kliavin tried to complicate instead. Tal anno 1959 might just be the worst player ever to get into complications with.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||who: Fritz thinks 20.Rxd6 was a blunder. 20.Rd4! would have kept white better.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||who: I will post all the lines when I get a chance.|
|Jan-25-06|| ||Boomie: Here are a couple of lines to give <who> a head start.|
20. Rd4 Nf6
(20...Qc6 21. Bf3 Rg1 22. Nc7+ Kf8 23. Bxc6 Rxe1+ 24. Kd2 Rxc7 25. Bxd7 Rh1 26. Bf5 Rc5 27. Bd3 Rxh2+ 28. Ke3 Ke7 29. a4 (2.03/13))
21. Rxc4 Rxc4 22. Be2 Rxc3 23. Nd4 Re3 24. Bxb5+ axb5 25. Rxe3+ Kd7 26. Ra3 b4 27. Ra7+ Kc8 (1.75/14)
|Jan-25-06|| ||who: That's pretty much it. One more line goes 20...Rxh2 21.Nc5+ Kd8 22.Rxc4 Nxc5 23.Rxc5 Rxc5 24.Bxf7 ( 1.41)|
|Mar-22-06|| ||jackmandoo: How do you activate your Nodes to see all of these moves?! |
I am lost by move twenty, as usual in a Tal game.
|Mar-23-06|| ||zev22407: Tal smiles in heaven,there were no chess programs in 50s and 60s.|
|Mar-23-06|| ||dbquintillion: sweet jesus.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||dakgootje: a game which you can play through and again and again and where you are still amazed even when youve seen it earlier on|
|Jun-27-06|| ||Runemaster: As other kibitzers have said, there's a lot to talk about in this game. I'll mention just a few things about the endgame. |
I love 37...Nxa2. If 38.Bxa2 b3 and one of the pawns is going to get through. Perhaps not that deep once you see it, but very nice.
In general, it was instructive how Tal used the small queenside army (the 2 pawns and the knight) - the king only came up at the very end to shepherd the pawns through.
Throughout the game, Klavin deserves some credit - he found good moves to keep the game going, but as we know, back then Tal was almost unstoppable.
|Jun-20-08|| ||mate2900s: Idon't like Nd5+ it just invites the c rook into the gme|
|May-02-10|| ||sicilianhugefun: My head was spinning while watching this game very closely.. When can we see another sort of Mikhail Tal walking over the board with his magic wand brilliantly shining and blazing with fire!|
|Mar-04-12|| ||screwdriver: @mate2900s, I agree with your idea that" Nd5+ just invites the c rook into the game." Certainly that Nd5+ move wasn't forced and black would have to push b4 to dislodge it. Lovely game though, from both sides but especially Tal, since he won it.|
|Mar-05-12|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Such a pity; a healthy Tal never competed against a sane Fischer in a world championship match. In the early Seventies, Tal had unbeaten streaks of 86 and 95 games; imagine the American having to face that.|
|May-10-17|| ||Joker2048: I think tal in his prime could easily handle fischer in his prime in a world championship match|
|Jul-16-17|| ||RKnight: It seems to me Tal had this game won considerably earlier, but he gave up an exchange in moves 28-30. Why not 28...Nc5, 29 Rd8+ Kg2 retaining the exchange + pawn and soon crushing? Then again, this whole game was quite a roller coaster!|
|Jul-16-17|| ||Nerwal: <Why not 28...Nc5, 29 Rd8+ Kg2 retaining the exchange + pawn and soon crushing? Then again, this whole game was quite a roller coaster!>|
It's likely he saw the entire line up to 37... ♘xa2 when he played 28... ♘b6, making it a forced win.
