Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-05  like a GM: 24.Nh8!, 29.Ne4!! Who needs knights anyway? Brilliant moves from a player who does whatever Anderssen tells him to do ("Attack, always attack")!
May-24-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: Nh8 is creepy!
Dec-06-06  sahmattr: If Anderssen saw his game, he would be very jealous of Tal. He was a real chess genious.
Dec-06-06  flamboyant: Nh8 came as a shock to me, but when you look closely it is a really logical move, but hard to find OTB (of course if its a puzzle of the day its easier to see, because youre looking for the weird move)
Dec-18-08  ChessYouGood: Tal was probably still 16 at the time of this destructive performance.
Dec-03-09  kooley782: <flamboyant> That's the point: Tal always looked for the weird move. :)
Jul-30-10  whatthefat: This game has made me realize I've been playing far too positionally of late.
Jul-30-10  1. h4: Piket vs Kasparov, 1989

Kasparov's famous 28...Nh1! might have been inspired by Tal's 24.Nh8! in this game. Two very similar motifs.
