Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-08  mmmsplay10: Tal could play the endgame, regardless of common belief
Jan-12-09  M.D. Wilson: <Tal could play the endgame, regardless of common belief> I don't know why there exists a myth that Tal couldn't play endgames. It's just absurd. He was a World Champion!
Sep-24-10  libertyjack: Tal was absolutely impressive at rook endgames
Oct-23-15  quirite: And I am impressed by his knight endgames.
His level in endagme in general was very good.
