Apr-09-05  lopium: I don't understand 15...Nxa4!
Apr-09-05  Milo: 16.Nxa4 Bxb3
Aug-19-05  alexandrovm: 15....Nxa4 16. if Nxa4 comes Rxc2+ exchanging rook and two knights with for the queen and a pawn. Also the king gets a lot of wind for further attacks
Aug-19-05  RookFile: King of funny.... although Tal
smacked white around pretty good,
in a different setting, white's offensive setup has been tried with success, particularly by today's English players. It's just not good against the Najdorf.
Mar-28-06  uergash: Tal takes advantage of white's premature attack and counters with an attack of his own
Mar-29-06  Boomie: A couple of cautionary tales. Don't play a4 if you intend to castle long. Also for anyone who wondered why white plays Kb1 in Sicilians, this game gives a couple of good reasons.
Jan-23-07  flamboyant: Gosh he destroyed white setup here, White's attack got nowhere while black lunched a fierce attack
