Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-05  Poisonpawns: Tal blunders on his last move and loses gm 1 of the 1965 canidates semi-finals.He was worse already but 41..Rhg8? runs into the powerful 42.Nf8!winning if 42..Bxf8 43.Bxd6! wins,42..Rgxf8 43.Bxd6! or Rbxf8 43.Bxd6! and The mating theme on the 6th and 7th ranks cannot be stopped without huge loss of material.
