|May-20-04|| ||Tigran Petrosian: Indeed! What a game!! |
|May-21-04|| ||Brian Watson: I believe the motivation for 14..Nxc3 is that 14..Nxe7 15.Bxb5+ axb5 16.Nxb5 Qa5 (or ..Qd7, also leading to difficulties) 17.Ne6+ Kf8 18.Nc4 Nf5 19.Qd8+, winning the rook. Is that right? |

Is that right?> If 14... Ne7 15. Bb5! ab 16. Nb5 Qa5, the point is 17. b4! Nc6 18. Qc5, White wins. In this variation, if 16... Qd7 17. Qd7 Bd7 18. Nc7, White wins.|
15... Nd1? is the losing move. Larsen should have played 15... Ne2! 16. Be2 Qe7. White stands better, but Black can defend.
|Nov-08-06|| ||Sularus: Tal's kung fu is too strong.|
|Jan-26-08|| ||talisman: sonny liston-floyd patterson...quick...white's 17th and 18th pretty tough 1,2.|
|Sep-12-08|| ||pom nasayao: man!!! one can see a lot of explosives packed in a 22-move game.|
|Oct-20-08|| ||dwavechess: 19/22 Tal`s moves concur with rybka 3 at 3 minutes per move, last 16 moves.|

Which one? This game is full(!) of <ZWISCHENZUG>!

So Tal goes <16/16(!)> in agreement with <Rybka 3> on the strongest move in the position, scoring 100%(!) accuracy with Rybka 3 on moves 7-22 (16 moves!) in a highly tactical position, almost 30 years before Rybka 3 is created!

Wow.> IMHO thats more a compliment to Rybka than Tal....
|Dec-25-08|| ||M.D. Wilson: Tal tied with Karpov at the Montreal Tournament of Stars, a great achievement. The 70s saw Tal's renaissance.|
|Sep-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Tal kept bashing Larsen in the Sicilian|
|Aug-25-10|| ||Whitehat1963: So simple, so beautiful. 22. Qa7 makes for an excellent Monday puzzle solution.|
|May-11-11|| ||TheFocus: <Preparing for a game with Larsen is a matter which is either too complicated, or too simple. The Dane's repertoire contains practically all opening systems, and one's chances of guessing the variation are no better than in a lottery. Therefore at home it was decided to begin the game with the advance of the king's pawn. At that the preparation came to an end.>|
Mikhail Tal - writing about his game with Larsen at Montreal 1979.
|May-12-11|| ||perfidious: <TheFocus> This was very funny, as the typical Tal wit shines through.|
After my last encounter with Louis A Mercuri, he annotated the game in Chess Horizons. The amusing thing about it was that his first note came after 1.e4 c6; he was surprised, as he'd fully anticipated either the French or 1....e5, though I'd also been using the Caro-Kann for years.
As I then played an average of 150+ games per year, I'd get bored playing the same old thing all the time, plus playing with opponents such as Mercuri (who was heavily booked up), I tried to stay a step ahead all the time.
|Apr-06-12|| ||talisman: 12. e5 "the thematic advance in such positions, after all the black king is still in the center! - Tal|
15. Bf3! a very important intermediate move after which white gains a clear advantage...the move made by Larsen loses rapidly - Tal
|Aug-07-12|| ||MarkFinan: Well I THINK Tal (must) be channelling his chess (and Brandy Intake!) through me, because I just scored 33 points on GTM, and the par Is ONLY!!!!!!!!<18> !!|
I recieved an email (*sigh*) telling me how great I AM from one of my many FANS..
My greatest achievement In chess ??
I will now ANSWER any questions!!! ((By E-mail))
MCF (THE) III.
I made It to 1000 posts for the first time without AJ having me banished to sockpuppetdom lol.
|Aug-02-13|| ||Zhbugnoimt: This was beautiful!!, though heavily one-sided.
This game was featured in a book by Colin Crouch, and it said there that on playing the losing blunder 15...Nxd1?? Larsen took 20 minutes!! This shows how much better Tal's tactical vision was.
And although Tal may have played with 100% accuracy for 16 straight moves according to Rybka 3 it is not so according to Houdini 3
|Dec-18-13|| ||BKITU: Bent out of shape.|
|Dec-18-13|| ||RookFile: Let's get into a tactical slugfest with Tal and see what happens.|
