e.g. 28.Ke3-Rxc2 29.Kxd4-Rxb2 30.Rb1-Rxa2 31.Rxb7-Ra3 32.g4-Rg3 etc. Most probably still drawn ?

  whiteshark: How sight can be a handicap in chess, is nicely illustrated in this game,

an example I [Tim Krabbé] found in <Psychology in Chess> by <Nikolai Krogius>.

White is in check. He had counted on <25.f4>, because on <25...e5> he could play <26.Bxc6+ Kxc6 27.Rxe5 Rxf4 28.gxf4 Bxf4+ 29.Rg5?! Bxg5+ 30.hxg5> and White remains a piece up. However, <29.Rg5> is illegal, as the Bishop isn't on h6 anymore, but on f4.

Tal still seeing it on h6 must have been caused by its being there on the board. That wouldn't have happened to him in blindfold chess. Now, he had to settle for <25.Bd2>, and the game ended in a draw.
