Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-16-15  zydeco: Taimanov is so good at getting the kinds of positions he has around move 21, where he has so much more space, his pieces are coordinated, active, and have threats on both sides of the board.

Terpugov missed 31.Bc7! but it's not as if something like 30....Qe7 inspires confidence.

Jun-16-15  morfishine: Excellent example of how positional play always trumps tactics: Superior positional play sets up winning tactics
