Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-10  ForeverYoung: this is an interesting game. Tal realizes at move 24 that "Black's king position is compromised ..." great use of the rook file to get his queen down there. After 28 moves Tal writes " ... At this point White was already in severe time trouble." Be that as it may, Tal had already grabbed the attack and probably saw a great deal of what was to come and had to be sure of his king's defensive possilities.
