Oct-25-08  addiction to chess: Typical Tal mounting an attack out of the opening on a seemingly weak king. And also typical Petrosian actually weakening his king! Now I just ave one question, What about 32...♖xh5? doesn't that win for black as I cannot see how white will force a perpetual or win.
Oct-25-08  apple pi: The rook is necessary on h8 to protect the a8 rook, preventing 33 Rxa8

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <addiction to chess>, Tal would have played 33.Rxa8. Maybe not fatal for Black, but risky.
Mar-21-12  ewan14: Good game !

Definitely not a boring Tal - Petrosian game
