  OhioChessFan: Whew, that a-pawn rush against Tal. The impertinent little foot soldier. It's strange that for 34 moves or so, White "looks" better. That awful pawn at f2 was really the problem though.

  OhioChessFan: Can anyone tell me the point of 42 Qb3?
Jun-02-08  sfairat: 42 Qb3-attacking the rook. A weak move, but Tal didn't have any good alternatives.
Dec-18-16  dehanne: This is the only game Tal lost at the '52 Latvian championship which he won.
Dec-18-16  ChessHigherCat: What a depressing game, watching Tal running out of tricks and going Talwärts (downhill). It's like the triumph of socialist realism and pragmatism over magic. At least he won all the other games.
