|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.....
|Sep-26-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Position after 13.d6!:

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 |
