  GrahamClayton: Danny King was competing in this tournament, and he gives a wonderful description of Tal playing this game:

"Tal was gunning for him. His attitude at the board was one of intense concentration. I remember watching Tal light up a cigarette, sucking in the nicotine as though it was his life-blood, but never averting his gaze from the chessboard during the whole operation. In the time it took me to stroll to the side of the stage and back again, all that was left of the cigarette was a column of ash that had dropped onto the table, and the merest wisp of smoke coming from Tal's nostrils."

"How Good Is Your Chess?" by Daniel King, Courier Dover Publications, 2003.

Jul-12-14  RookFile: I thought black handled the opening well, and found myself agreeing with a lot of what he did. At some point he lost his way, surely 22....Ne5 can't be right. As Karpov says, if you're going to play a move like this, you'd better ask yourself: "Where's the mate?"
Jul-12-14  RookFile: 22.....Qe7 looks reasonable. The a8 rook goes to f8 or h8 soon.
