Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: After 6 moves white had 4 central pawns on 4th rank + knights out. Easy task for Tal.
Dec-16-05  Eatman: Pretty sure that was standard 4 pawns variation of King's Indian. I think white's mistake was going for a long forced variation which Tal could see much better. In the end white will lose a8 night and will be down material with no compensation.
