Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-03  MoonlitKnight: This game has a duplicate: Franco vs Tal, 1962
May-19-14  Zugzwangovich: Tal wrote of this game that if 19.Be3, then 19...Nf3 20.gf3 Re3 and "White loses a piece". But after 20...Re3 Black is still a piece down. Seems the follow-up would either be 21.Nc1 Qh4 22.Kd1 Ra3 23.ba3 Qa4 or 21.Qb4 cb4 22.Ra1 Rb3. So unless I'm missing something, Black regains his sacrificed pieces with two extra pawns rather than White loses a piece.
