   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...

dTal: Got it, but took longer than I would have liked..
   Jan-10-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)

   Jan-06-17 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
dTal: Beautiful and instructive combination starting with 29. d4! which I failed to remotely spot. I was completely on the wrong path, trying N sacs on f7 .. :-( The win is instead based on exploiting the pin of the black N to the Q. Taking the pawn with either R or P seems to lead to a ...
   Nov-24-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
dTal: What a tactical minefield this game was! Amazing play by both players. Try going through this without any engine or analysis, the mind boggles!
   Aug-26-16 Miles vs Ljubojevic, 1978 (replies)
dTal: Ah, the late great Tony Miles. RIP Grand Master, we miss you.
