Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-16-05  Eatman: Tal notes that 37. Rb8 was the deciding error after black forces a nice win.

Also, Tal notes that 38. ... h5+ would have been a grave error instead of 38. ... f5+ which he played. The difference would have been that at end of the line white would have had a pawn on h6.

  Cinco: Indeed, <Eatman>. Nice combination by Tal to win the rook and the game.
Mar-24-13  Sho: Tal's genius consists of posing his opponents with tempting ways to go wrong. – Larry Evans
