|Jan-11-10|| ||Tubba324: LOL.
Looks like Tal was drunk and playing with the other poor fella.
The queen sacrifice is forced though or then white would have a lasting positional plus.
Methinks 21.Bf2? and 22.g4? also helped a lot the black cause but for certain that position is not very easy to play with white.
|Jan-11-10|| ||zanshin: White was defending his position until <33.Qxg5?> which allowed Tal to fork his King and Queen.|

|Jan-14-10|| ||Tubba324: I dare to disagree. Methinks the position is completely lost for white anyway. If not 33.Qxg5, what else to play? Black are threatening Nf4, Rg2, etc.
If 33.Rg1, Ne3 wins.|
|Jan-14-10|| ||Tubba324: I guess 32.g5? was the ultimate error. Instead 32.h4 looks interesting. Now W are threatening 33.g5 and 33...Rg2 is not possible (34.Qb8+). Looks like B are forced to play 34...Kh7 and after 35.g5! Rxf5 (whatelse?) 36.gxh6 g6 it looks like Black are still winning but not as easily as in the actual game.|
|Jan-14-10|| ||zanshin: Rybka 3 comparing <33.Qh3> and <33.Qxg5>|
[-0.75] d=18 33.Qh3 Rfe2 34.Qh5 Rbc2 35.Qh3 Ra2 36.Qh5 Rab2 37.Rc1 Nf6 38.Qh3 Ra2 (0:02.59) 10271kN
[-5.94] d=18 33.Qxg5 Rxh2 (0:05.35) 21464kN
Shuffling of pieces by Rybka suggests she cannot find a 'plan', but at least the move is not losing.
Let's see how other engines do.

Analysis by Fritz 10:
33.Qh3 Ra2 34.Kg1 Rg2+ 35.Kh1 Rgd2 36.Rc1 Rdc2
µ (-1.34) Depth: 20/50 00:04:09 389mN
Engines seem to like <33.Qh3> over h4 or f6.
|Jan-14-10|| ||zanshin: Fruit is the same: no plan, but 33.Qxg5 is a disaster.|
