Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-05-06  Fast Gun: Subtle endgame play from Tal, making excellent use of the bishop pair against the knight pair, it is easy to overlook that Tal apart from being a tactical genius who could tear the best players to pieces with the power of his attacks, was no slouch in the endgame either. Have a look at Sax v Tal (Tallinn 1979) or Tal v Radulov (Skopje 1972) and finally Smyslov v Tal (Amsterdam 1964) all of these are good examples of Tal's endgame technique!!
Apr-12-08  refutor: great example of the bishop pair dominating the "knight pair"
Aug-12-21  Saniyat24: One knight can only do so much...!
