Nov-15-08  Extremophile: 40.Bb5! Another nice game by the Magician. Whenever he finds a way for a better ending he goes for it.
May-28-10  ForeverYoung: Tal points out that the paradoxical 6 ... Bc8 is black's best move. The way game proceeds 6 ... Qb6 could very well be blamed for the loss. What is striking about this game is how simply Tal wins this game after being a pawn up after 22 moves.

With an extra pawn plus bishop vs knight in an open position, any competent player would win this ending.

A nice touch is seen near the end when 40....Nxa3 is not on, because 41.Bd3 wins with ease.
