Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-10-05  CeeFoR: Quite a few nice discovered attacks in this one
Jun-22-08  mmmsplay10: With 24.Nc4, Janis Klavian decided to take on Tal. Around this time, a rumor spread that if u take queens of the board with tal, he couldn't beat you, this one of a few games that made people fear the magician from Riga once more.
Oct-30-09  RandomVisitor: Looks like 50...Kg5 was the losing move - 50...Kg3 might draw.

15...Qc4 would be good for black...

Oct-30-09  WhiteRook48: this was Tal's "prevenge" on Kliavin for the Game of the Day
Nov-09-16  Cheapo by the Dozen: Black refuses the b pawn, which isn't all THAT poisoned, and promptly gives up a piece. What was that all about?
