Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-05-09  Sem: Wow, a Tal game without any kibitzing! If someone had shown me this game and mumbled: 'Black is Petrosian, of course', I would have believed him.
Dec-05-11  gun0m: such a wow game....
Aug-05-15  Allanur: really great. in this match, Tal is very universal or balanced. both in defence and offense he is very good. no hole to penetrate through and attacks were well planned.
Sep-02-15  ESAnt: 39.Qd3+ was a joke!
Dec-04-18  RKnight: <ESAnt> White had no real defense,. e.g. 39. hxg3 hxg3 40. Rfd2 f2+ and he must give up a rook to avoid mate in h2.
