Jul-12-05  lentil: of course, 19... fg?? 20. Qxg5+ Kh8 21. Qf6+ Kg8 22. Nf5
Aug-23-06  Runemaster: I love the way Korchnoi defends after Tal's speculative piece sac. Through the set of moves 19-24 ...Qg4/c5/Qg6/Be4/Rae8/Re6 Korchnoi feeds defensive pieces to his kingside, drives off the enemy knight and creates threats of his own, principally against g2.
Sep-21-07  kuna65: Why not 24 g4 ? Or is it lost for white already?
Jun-19-12  Whitehat1963: Tal looks like he's constantly throwing caution to the wind. Here, he offers and offers, but Korchnoi turns him down again and again. But I don't understand Tal's treacheries all the time.
