Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-08  Miacat: I'm surprised nobody has commented previously on this Tal game. The bishop sac 38 Bxg6 seals the deal nicely.
Apr-13-09  Karpova: Mikhail Tal:

<Under the doctor's instructions, I played several of the games in my hotel room. The majority of my opponents readily agreed to this, realising that it was not I who was being capricious, but others proved less compliant, and insisted that play should take place only in the tournament hall. Need it be said that I doubled my efforts in these games, and won them both. In winning against Shamkovich, I seriously spoiled his tournament position: up till then he had been amongst the leaders. With Sakharov also, the game proved to be fairly 'ruthless'.>
