Aug-07-06  MyriadChoices: I love how Tal blocks in the light squared bishop with c5 and really exploits its poor position. Then he just constricts and grinds his opponent into submission.

  sisyphus: This game was apparently played in the Latvian Championship. Pasman won the event, losing only this game to Tal, who finished 7th with a record of +7-4=6.

  Chessical: After <17...Ng3!>, the Knight cannot be taken as then the two consequent threats - to the unprotected White Queen and to mate on <h2> cannot be simultaneously answered.
