|Dec-16-05|| ||Eatman: Qd6!! must have come quite as a shock to Tringov, who foolishly chose to open center while being massively behind in development (after eating that b2 pawn). Tal makes him pay in this miniature.|
|Mar-30-06|| ||zev22407: A game for the books,the danger of picking pawns in the openning.
With Q-d6 Tal ofers two pieces but he comends that black can takeone piece in a time!|
|Mar-30-06|| ||offramp: That makes me think of when annotators say "White has great piece activity."|
White may have great piece activity, but he can still only play one move at a time.
|Mar-31-06|| ||zev22407: But his pieces are controlling the board.|
|Apr-25-06|| ||Zeratul1979: This game is actually in a book named 'Study chess with Tal'. The very first game actually!
Interesting note: What would Tal have done on black's reply 13.. exf4 instead of Qxc3?|
|Apr-25-06|| ||Jim Bartle: If I'd ever had the privilege of playing Tal, I'd have protected the f7 square from here to Sunday and still have been worried about a sacrifice. He seems to sacrifice a piece there in most of his great games.|
|Dec-07-06|| ||micartouse: Wow, black really played the opening badly. Grabbing the pawn is one thing, but moves 9-11 are just asking for disaster!|
|Jan-22-07|| ||sagahelten: For a video commentary by Henrik Daniels, see http://www.videochess.net/ (Intermediate: "Time, Space and Power"). The former Danish, now Icelandic grand master speaks english.|
|Jan-23-07|| ||sagahelten: <Henrik Danielsen;|
|Sep-18-08|| ||xevious75: To Zeratul: if 13.. exf4 then 14.Nd5 threatending 15.Nc7 forking King and Rook. Note that 14.. cxd5 would now be met by disastrous (for black) exd5+|
|Sep-20-08|| ||pom nasayao: After 17. ___ Kd8, 18. Nf7+ Kc7 19. Qd6 mate. Or if Black plays 17. Ne7, then the continuation would be 18. Qf7+ Kd8 19. Ne6 mate.|
|Oct-13-08|| ||kloostra: As a young man,18 years of age,I was
there to see the great man make these
moves.....I was 2 metres from the board!! This was for me poetry in
motion...there is nothing to add...!
What an impression this man made on me!! As a human and a chess player..!
|Oct-14-08|| ||Ladolcevita: wow,you are so lucky
can i be lucky someday???5555555.....

Notice the difference in development. Every White piece has been developed, while Black has "developed" only his Queen to the side of the board.
|Dec-29-11|| ||maxi: This was one of the first games I studied. Needless to say I couldn't understand it very well. I was left prejudiced against the modern defense for a while after seeing it.|
<kloostra>, could you give any details about the actual game?
|Mar-24-13|| ||PawnSac: Another masterpiece by the Magician from Riga!|
|Oct-18-14|| ||rodantero: After 10...b5? could have followed 11.Nxb5! Qxd2 12.Nxd6+ Kd7 13.Bxd2 Kxd6 14.Bf4+ Ke7 15.Bxb8 |
|Jan-20-15|| ||Fusilli: <GrahamClayton> ... <Notice the difference in development.>|
Indeed! GM Kaidanov likes to say that, as kids, we all learn that it is essential to develop our pieces, but later, when we become good, we think those rules don't apply to us anymore!
