Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-30-03  grozny: Nothing too flashy here--just good, solid chess. If 49. ... Na8, White mops up with the extra material.

On moves 35 & 36, as the a pawn was racing toward a8, pursued by the black knight, I felt like saying, "Run, rabbit, run!" :-)

Oct-19-15  WhoKeres: A beautiful calculating game by Tal, using the Q-side pawn majority to win against one of the great endgame players of the 20th century!
Oct-20-15  ToTheDeath: Agreed, great positional chess by the wizard.
Jan-05-18  ColdSong: 7.a3 is the beginning of the winning queening plan to the queenside isn't it ?
