Mar-04-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Pawn Power! 15.♗xe6! A classic Tal sac.I love how he Forks the ♖ and ♕ then and builds tactics around it,forcing the ♕ to take the ♖ with 22.♖c7+.I have done the same ♗ sac with a ♘ forking a ♕ and ♖,it was in a sicilian dragon,I have it linked to www.chessmaniac.com in the forums under 'my great games'.I also sac a ♖ for mate.
Mar-04-06  whatthefat: This is a very nice game from Tal. With 17.Nd5! (rather than 17.Nxd8 Rxd8 when white is on top but black can fight) he illustrates the value of a knight on the 6th.

Also strong for white is 17.Qh3!? aiming to use the possible discovery on the black king, while looking at the kingside pawns.

Mar-04-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: 17.Qh3 is a great idea,thanks for pointing that out.
Dec-29-14  Conrad93: After 13. a3, why does nobody try sacrificing a pawn with 13...b4!?

After 14. axb4 a5 15. b5 a4 it looks like black has a good attack going.
