  zydeco: Games 3-5 in this match are a bit bizarre: the players agreeing to draws as soon as they're out of their opening preparation.

Notes from Cafferty's book on the Candidates Matches:

With 23.Nxe5, white is threatening 24.Rxg7+ Bxg7 25.Qg4.

Tal was hoping Gligoric would answer 23.....Re6 when he could answer 24.c4 with an attack.

If 24.....Qxh6 25.Qxf7+ Kh7 26.g3 with a mating attack. If 24....a3 25.Rxb3 Qxb3 26.Qf6.

With 25.Bxg7 white forces a draw: 25....Bxg7 26.Qg3 Qh6 27.Rh4 Qe6 (not 27....Qd6 28.Rh8+) 28.Rg4.

Tal thought for 50 minutes before 25.Bxg7 but couldn't come up with any fresh attacking ideas.
