|Jun-18-05|| ||Hesam7: When is this game played? Is this Tal the World Champion ?|
|Jun-18-05|| ||iron maiden: Should the analysis be added onto the game itself if it was never actually played?|
|Nov-05-07|| ||PAWNTOEFOUR: losing to tal,back in '61,was no disgrace!..most GM'S fell to the 'wizard from riga'....as far as those stories are concerned....keep telling more of 'em..i find 'em quite entertaining|
|Dec-23-07|| ||enoughsaid05: Tal, the humanity at best! A man with an open heart, who played and win without pride but lose with natural dignity.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||spikester2848: Its always a pleasure to go through Tal's games.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||DarthStapler: Great game by a great player|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Andrijadj: Well,there we see the quality difference between Nezmetdinov and Tal...Nezmet was also able to produce brilliant attacking games,but his score vs Averbakh was horrendeous...Meanwhile Tal was able to do this to Yury...It indicates that Tal was a complete player,and not only an attacker,and Rashid lacked positional sense and technique...|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Bishoprick: To be able to play like Tal. . .|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Ryan Razo: ...would indeed be a Tal order. :-)|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Ryan Razo: Instead of the Ng3 line of this opening variation (which seems more common), Tal somewhat prefers Ne3, possibly to take control of the d5-square.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this must be a Tal-like style of play. But seriously, what's the follow-up to ...Nxd8?|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Ryan Razo: After Nxd8, poor Yuri will lose his |
|Jan-05-09|| ||Ychromosome: I agree with Iron Maiden. The analysis should be in an annotation at the end of what was played.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||furrer: Shouldnt it be Rd8# and not Rd8+|
|Jan-05-09|| ||kevin86: A usual brilliant finish for Tal|
|Jan-05-09|| ||Chessmensch: <furrer> It's not mate at that point.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||cydmd: Although not mentioned, it's interesting the finish for 28... Kg8.|
29.Rd6! threatening 30.Rg6#
29... Be6 (the only defense)
Now, it follows a sequence of forced moves.
30.Rxe6!! fxe6 31.Bxe6+ Rf7 32.Qg6+ Kh8 33.Qxf7 threatening 34.Qg8#

34... Ne7 (the only defense)
35.Qf8+ Kh7 36.Bf5+ Nxf5 and finally 37.Qxc5 winning the black queen.
Note that Averbakh rejected that king position on move 27. Playing 27... Kh8, he would have reached the same position after 28.Qh6+ Kg8.
|Jan-05-09|| ||Extremophile: Whe I see one of Tal's games, I can't take myself of watching a few more of his games. They are quite inspiring.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||champsylove: I too played Averbakh in a classic sicilian dragon. I lost by a fiery breadth. But then Fischer appeared danced around the board and told me to concentrate on my Nadjorf, whilst Magnus Carlsen started playing Matt Damon, claiming he was his long lost brother.
All the while Misha Tal was pouring me a glass of brandy whilst listening to Kasparov talk about Russian politics.
Would you believe it?
Well I did, untill I woke up. :)
|Jan-05-09|| ||whitebeach: <furrer: Shouldnt it be Rd8# and not Rd8+>|
No, because black has . . . Nxd8. But then white takes black's queen on b6 and has a purely routine win.
|Jan-05-09|| ||talisman: and this man said tal had no character? 8-0 in a-- whuppings.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||patzer2: Tal's deflection 23. Bxc5!! removes the guard and exposes Black to a decisive Kingside attack after the surprise follow-up 26. Bd3! .|
|Jan-05-09|| ||xrt999: Does 28...Ke8 help? It leaves the e7 square open for the queen and therefore 29.Rd5 doesnt do as much. Qh8 is met by ...Qf8, etc. Seems like something to look into further.|
|Jan-07-09|| ||cydmd: I don't think so, <xrt999>. Look at this:|
28... Ke8 29.Rd5 Qe7 30.Qxc6+ followed by 31.Qxc8 (30... Bd7 31.Qxb7 winning the rook)
|Jan-08-09|| ||furrer: My fault, I missed Nxd8...|
