  HeMateMe: Tal beat Andersson 3-1, with 27 draws. This is his first win against the drawing master. You don't want to have an unprotected King when Misha decides to open up the center.

  kingscrusher: Na2 - cute positional move which is also the Engine's top choice for getting an advantage out of the position:

Analysis by Stockfish 14:

1. ± (1.12): 15.Na2 h4 16.Nb4 Be8 17.e5 d5 18.c3 Bc5 19.g4 Ne7 20.h3 Qa7 21.Nd3 Bb6 22.Kh1 Rc8 23.Bg5 a5 24.f4 Kg8

I remember Yasser Seirawan (who has a big plus score vs Tal) playing Na2 against me in a blitz game on ICC - it didn't end well for me there vs Seirawan.

Sep-12-21  RookFile: Na2 is a remarkable move. Not exactly the first thing you'd expect from playing over a Tal game!
