Jan-12-13  RookFile: Tal had miles to go before he could sleep in this one.
Jan-12-13  mjkE4: How did white lose?
Jan-12-13  drleper: White missed a win with 34.g7 instead of 34.Re1, which would have brought about some nice threats.
May-03-17  RKnight: <drleper>'s move is good: 34 Re1 threatens 35. Re7. If 34...Qd2 35 g7 Rh7, 36 Qxf6 Rxg7, 37 Bxg7 Qxg7, and either 38 Rg1 or even better the mating net starting with 38 Re8+ Tal could have been out-Tal'ed.
