|May-26-03|| ||boowillo: Come on Mikhail, you ain't gotta break it off like that now! |
|May-26-03|| ||Cerebrate2006: wow, 2 great sackers, but it looks like tal was the only one to sack in this game :( |
|May-27-03|| ||ughaibu: It all seems so natural that I cant help wondering why Tal was the only player to play like Tal. |
|Sep-29-03|| ||Elrathia Kingi: This game looks like Tal vs Oll, 1986 except for the final moves added. |
|Sep-29-03|| ||drukenknight: This game continues to baffle me but what if 21...b5? The idea being if he can get the Q to move then maybe he can get either the N to e4 or the R to a2 after Bxf2+ |
|Sep-29-03|| ||Shadout Mapes: 21...b5 22.Qxc5 i think |
|Sep-30-03|| ||drukenknight: I am stupid what am I talking about? Did we already look at this game from the other link? |
|Sep-30-03|| ||drukenknight: what about just Ra4? to work the lateral pin. |
|Sep-21-04|| ||themindset: if exd4 then:
23. Qc7+ Ke7 24. Re1+ Ne4 25. Rxe4+ Kf6 26. Qd6+ Kg5 27. h4#
|Sep-21-04|| ||themindset: crafy thinks that the greedy 11...Qxb2 is winning by over 2.5|
what do you think?
|Sep-21-04|| ||crafty: 11...xb2 12. a4 b6 13. e1 e8 14. xe6 df6 (eval -2.66; depth 14 ply; 1000M nodes)|
|Sep-22-04|| ||themindset: yep, looks like a sketchy sacrifice by Tal, only a computer would be fearless against him though. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||The Analyst: <themindset> Actually, I think the sac is correct. It looks like a terrible version of the Kasparov-Deep Blue game. 11...Qxb2 12 a4 Qb6 13 Re1 Ne8 14 Rxe6 is not necessary: 14 c4 or 14 Bf4 would give White long term compensation. |
|Dec-21-04|| ||Hidden Skillz: why didnt tal play..14.Ba5 its obvious if queen captures 15.Ne6# |
|Sep-01-06|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: 11...Qxb2 does look better simply because it doesn't open up the game so much for the White pieces. I'm not sure <crafty> found the best line for White: see the following game. However, the play is so complex it would be a miracle if both competitors played a flawless game:|
Yifan Hou vs A Ushenina, 2006
|Jan-11-08|| ||tpstar: "Tal could have won the queen at once with 14. Ba5 (14 ... Qxa5 15. Ne6 mate) but the text is even stronger as it opens the c-file."|
"14 ... Qxc5 obviously allows 15. Ne6 mate, while 14 ... Qa6 15. Ba5+! b6 16. Ne6 mate is not an improvement."
Joe Gallagher: "Starting Out: The Caro-Kann." Everyman Publishers, London, 2002.
|May-20-08|| ||ChessYouGood: Like for a lot of his great sacrifices, the condition of possibility here is lack of development. By 1986 Tal was well and truly a legend - why play h6 against him? In fact why play the caro-kann at all against he bloodthirsty Tal, when all it does is restrict mobility here.|

18. dxc5 e5 19. h3 Nxf2 20. Kxf2 Rxg6 21. Bxa5 b6 (eval +0.63 for White after 24 ply)|
