|Feb-10-05|| ||beatgiant: <samvega: Doesn't 29.Nac2 Rh3 maintain black's threats?>
I considered this too but was unconvinced. Did you find anything concrete after 29. Nac2 Rh3 30. Nf3? |
|Feb-10-05|| ||beatgiant: To be specific, what I looked at 29. Nac2 Rh3 30. Nf3 gxf3 31. exf3 Qf4 32. Re2. If now 32...Qxf3, 33. Rg2 seems to leave everything defended, while if 32...Bc6 33. Nd4 Bd5 34. Qd2. Can Black do better here? |
|Sep-03-05|| ||lopium: Ahahahahzzz!! Nice draw and nice game.|
|Jan-29-06|| ||whatthefat: This is truly an astounding game; it certainly deserves more attention.|
Tal's ability to muddle a game, like no other, is seldom seen so clearly. The problems he sets for such a quality player as Portisch are simply incredible. I imagine Mischa would have had a good chuckle about this.
|Feb-07-06|| ||bitko: Another draw with opposite coloured bishops !|
|Feb-07-06|| ||who: Can someone post computer analysis to this game?|
|Feb-09-06|| ||who: Since no one did, I took it into my own hands.
Not surprisingly Fritz dislikes 16...d4 (1.78 Bf5 0.82/10).
It also dislikes 22...Rc3 (3.31 Nc3 2.53/10),
25...h5 (4.78 Ng5 3.47)
and after 26...hxg4 (6.22 Kxg7 5.10/10) it should be curtains.
All Portisch needed to do was play 27.Bxc3 and after either 27...g3 28.Qd4! (28.hxg3? Qh3! and white can't avoid the perpetual) 28...gxh2+ 29.Kh1!(29.Kxh2 Qh3+ and the same perpetual) 29...Ng3+ 30.Kg2 Qh3+ 31.Kf2 white wins. I imagine that the first line gives enough complications that that's what Portisch was worried about. Or 27.Bxc3 Nxc3 28.Qd2 and white wins (7.69/13).
29.Nf3 (2.94 29.e3 Rxa3 30.Bh6 Rd3 31.Qe2 3.19)
31.Rf1 (0.00 31.Nc2 Qf2 32.Bd4 gxf3 33.Bxf2 fxe2+ 34.Kg1 exd1=Q 35.Rxd1 Rxc2 36.Rxe7 2.93/11)
31...Rxa3 (0.65 31...gxf3 32.exf3 Kxg7 33.Nc2 Bxf3+ 34.Rxf3 Qxf3 35.Qxf3 Rxf3 -0.66)
32.Qc1 (0.00 32.Bd4 gxf3! 33.Rxf3 Bxf3+ 34.exf3 Qxf3+ 35.Rxf3 +0.65/12)
|Sep-28-06|| ||ghaiethe: Wonderful Traw!!|
|Mar-10-07|| ||HOTDOG: 27.Bxc3 g3 28.Qd4 gxh2+ 29.Kh1 Ng3+ 30.Kg2 Qh3+ 31.Kf2 e5 32.Qxd6 Nf5 33.Qxe5 Qh4+ 34.Kg2 Qg5+ 35.Kh1 Ng3+ 36.Kxh2 Qh4+ 37.Kg2 Qh3+ 38.Kf2 and White wins(from ''How to evaluate the position'',Anatoly Lysenko)|
|Sep-24-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Beautiful bamboozling by Tal.|
|Feb-06-09|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Yikes.|
|Feb-21-09|| ||MrMelad: Wow!! What a game!
on 32.Bd4 gxf3 33.Bxe3 f6# mates!
This is what I admire about Tal, I can imagine his rivals pounding their head in despair... Portisch got all of black pieces but the king and black still hangs on. This chess can't be tought! Of course Fritz doesn't like it, but show me a human that doesn't love it :)
|Feb-21-09|| ||laskereshevsky: As I wrote some weeks ago in another page, talking about this game:|
<..how many times Tal had shocked the opponents with obscures conseguence's moves?.... Expecial vs. classical and positional players like Portisch, or Glicoric for instance...
who know this game?!>
(I gived the above game link)
<Portisch vs Tal, 1964
Realizing that his just to be positionaly "squeezed" by Portisch, Tal goes to a rook sacrifice in change of...a doupled pawn!!. but after others "unsounds" sacrifices and astonishing moves the miracle came....
Portisch, looks to me absolutly confused by the crazy illogical Tal's play....
Of course the 1964's Tal had a much more "terrific" appeal, toward the opponents, then the 1976's ones...:)>
.... (Reffering to your own past words between <brackets> Its.....
....A kind of self-orgasmic kibitzer feeling?!..... )
|Apr-01-11|| ||AylerKupp: One of my all-time favorite games, for reasons that I can't quite explain. I remember the analysis in Chess Life shortly after the game was played when Tal was quoted as saying that after 13.Qc2 he realized that he had been outplayed by Portisch and that he had a choice between sacrificing a piece for more active play or being squeezed to death. Naturally, he chose the former. And with Tal, one piece leads to a rook, leads to . . .|
At the end Tal had 4 pawns for his rook and Portisch was short of time, so Portisch took the draw. "Portisch wouldn't argue" is what Chess Life said. And Chess Life summed it best: "A game such as one seldom sees."
|Dec-09-11|| ||King Death: This was a murky game, even for Tal.
The opening is just a sideline in the King's Indian, not a Zukertort.
|May-31-12|| ||FSR: What an insane game! Somehow I had never seen or heard of it before.|
|May-31-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <FSR> This is indeed one heck of a game!|
|May-31-12|| ||FSR: Back in those days Portisch had a hard time against Tal. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
|Jul-15-13|| ||gars: <Whatthefat, AylerKupp> I have been told that after this game Tal said: "If I had more time I would have resigned!"|
|Jan-15-18|| ||GrahamClayton: The White knight on a3 remained 'en prise' for 9 moves before being captured, while the White bishop on g7 remained 'en prise' for 8 moves before being captured.|
|Jan-15-18|| ||AylerKupp: <gars> I can't believe that it's been so many years since I looked at this game. And I had never heard that quote from Tal. But it certainly sounds like something he would have said!|
|Jan-15-18|| ||morfishine: Is this a real game? Looks like something even more bizarre than 3-D chess! Is 4-D possible?|
For this 39-move game, one could interchange or substitute exclaims with question marks, for practically every move, and it wouldn't make much of a difference...
I've been through it twice and my head is beginning to hurt...think I'll hold off viewing a third time til maybe tomorrow at the earliest lol
|Jan-19-18|| ||ColdSong: Really exciting and frightening.One has to be sure of all his defensive patterns when playing this Devil.|
|Jan-20-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: I guess So studied some Tal games lately ;)|
|Jan-20-18|| ||Howard: This game was in Volume 2 of the recent-published trilogy of Tal's best games...and for damn good reason!|
