I'd like to apply for a government Grant to study ways to lose chess games faster. Thirty-three moves is too long to play against someone as good as Tal.

May-15-20  SpamIAm: <carpovius>, after your suggested 35.Qg3? black has better than 35...Be5?, namely both 35...Qxg3+ 36.Kxg3 Rxf1 and even better 35...Rxf1+ 36.Kxf1 Qxg3.
