  Benzol: I like Tal's 29.♕h5. Could Taimanov have played 12...d6 13.0-0-0 ♔e7 hoping to get time to play ♖d8 and then move the King to safety?
Jun-10-08  dTal: I guess but I think White has a very nice position. Looks like Taimanov couldnt win or draw against Tal for love or money during this period!
