   Apr-12-18 Potkin vs D Brandenburg, 2008 (replies)
dTal: I'm sorry what?? Surely Black could play on?
   Apr-11-18 W So vs M Mahjoob, 2007 (replies)
dTal: This was hard! I thought 20. Ngf7 wins on the spot but after 20. ... Qe7, there doesn't seem to be anything clear. Instead, Wesley's brilliant 20. Rf5 wins the house. Bet he say that many moves earlier. This position illustrated to me so clearly why I will never be good at this game ...
   Nov-17-17 Michael Adams (replies)
dTal: Happy b'day Michael, and long may you play Chess. One of my favourite players.
   Nov-09-17 Mikhail Tal (replies)
dTal: Always missed, my favourite of all WCs. RIP maestro.
   Nov-03-17 A Birer vs C Duncan, 1990 (replies)
dTal: This looks like a blitz game that I would play last thing at night before going to bed, so tired I would be moving the pieces reflexively. How did this become a GOTD???
   Aug-24-17 Shabalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
dTal: I didn't notice it was Black to play, and totally confused myself..
   Jul-17-17 Tal vs Dauga, 1959
dTal: I was also wondering why Black didn't play <38...Bf4+ 39.Kh1 Qg3> which leads to a draw. Perhaps he had visions of winning?
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
dTal: In common with many, I found this challenging. Took me over 3 mts, and I'm pretty sure I only found it because I knew there must be a killing move. Doubt I would have seen it as a concluding move in a combination :-(
   Mar-10-17 M Matlakov vs R Hasangatin, 2013 (replies)
dTal: What is the pun? :-)
   Feb-03-17 Timman vs Spassky, 1983 (replies)
dTal: This is the easiest Friday puzzle I can remember in a long while. Think the whole sequence plays itself after the not-too-difficult-to-find 24. ... Nb4. Let me kid myself for a while that I am improving...
