Kibitzer's Corner
May-28-05  aw1988: No kibitzing on this famous game?? It's extremely well played by Taimanov.
Jun-28-05  Knight13: Taimanov handles the entire game extremely well. The irresistible attack of his weak e-pawn is great!

Good game.

Oct-22-05  sitzkrieg: Nc6 is bad according to theory. e6 ought to be played since Bb5 and Bf6 (Bb4ch followed by castling) are not dangerous. Nc6 is bad because white can continiously work with threats against pawn e7 and b7.

Black's f5 against Ne4 is bad of course but his position is inferior anyway.

Really admirable play by Taimanov.

May-18-08  ToTheDeath: Nice game, Uhlmann did not put up a lot of resistance- 40...Bxb5 and 42...Bb5 were better chances to draw.
