Mar-28-06  weary willy: - how about 28... for a Monday (Tuesday?) puzzle?
Mar-28-06  zev22407: Fine tactics from Tal.
As in many of his games he sacs a piece starts an attack on the king and finishes with a combo.
Aug-07-08  notyetagm: Holy criminy! Tal was a @#$%ing magician!
Sep-02-08  ToTheDeath: Cool game- Contrary to his own ironic remarks, Tal's sacrifices are usually sound, as is the case here.
Feb-13-09  schroedingers cat: every time i watch a game of tal i get goosebumps.
Feb-13-09  Jim Bartle: Isn't it sort of foolish to try a provocative opening like the Four Pawns against Tal? Just seems he's bound to file holes behind it.
Feb-13-09  AnalyzeThis: He probably figured he better attack Tal before Tal attacked him.
Feb-13-09  Jim Bartle: Good point, AT.
