Nov-16-07  talisman: worked hard for his only win against stein.you kind of get the feeling these 2 were chess brothers.
Dec-25-09  jerseybob: 24.Ne6?? from a combinative genius like Stein is amazing, but it seems Stein had this in mind when he played the maneuver 22.Nb5/23.Nd4 and I think that's actually where white goes wrong. The knight belongs on c3 to guard white's chief asset, the passed d-pawn. Maybe a rook lift with 22.Re3 heading for g3 would've been better. But after 23..Bg6 it seems that the d-pawn is lost (24.Nf3, Nxd5 looks safe) so it was too late by then for "rational" play.
Apr-06-10  Everett: Well, I think time and again Tal has shown that a rook can give two minors complete fits, though I think the presence of Qs and pawns limit it's scope in this game.
