Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-09-06  Albertan: The move 7...e6 is much more popular than the move Tal chose in this game 7...a6.
Aug-09-06  Albertan: Jun played well until 39.Qg5? and 40.Qd2??
He should have played 39.Qg6+ instead of 39.Qg5:
39.Qg6 Kf8 40.Qh6+ Ke7 41.Bg2 Bh3 42.Bxh3 Qxh3+ =

On move 40 he should have tried 40.Bg2 however this would just prolong the agony due to:

40. Bg2 Nf4 41. Qf6+ Kxf6 42. Ne4+ Ke5 43. Nxg3 Nd3 44. b3 Bd1 45. Ne4 Bxb3

May-08-18  jabinjikanza: Xu jun gets the test of benoni setup .
