  Karpova: Mikhail Tal on Tal vs Portisch, 1965 after 1...c6:

<After Portisch's first move I feverishly began to recall which variations I had not yet adopted in tournaments. To my aid came reminiscences as a trainer. Last year in the USSR Ladies' Championship I assisted Zara Nakhimovskaya, and since the Riga lady, in answer to 1 e4, plays only 1...c6, we studied the various systems of the Caro-Kann literally for a whole day. As it happened, Konoplyeva chose the 2 ♘c3 d5 3 ♘f3. From the opening Nakhimovskaya obtained an excellent position, but all the time I felt that somewhere White could have played better (although, of course, I didn't mention this to Zara).>
