Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-12  ozmikey: Tal gets quite lucky here, I feel. Black gives up his monster passed pawn far too easily; tricks like 33...Rd3 or even 33...Ne2 were possible instead of the compliant 33...Rd2.

Dec-31-14  LRJ: After White takes on f7 with 38.Rxf7, he forks the king and knight, and will end up a piece and a pawn ahead.

OK, let me try to lessen my shame by saying that, given his play after move 30, I'm guessing Black was in terrible time trouble.
