Dec-27-04  OneArmedScissor: 23. Nd5 would have been an interesting move as well.
Dec-27-04  erimiro1: When Tal decided to rock'n'roll, and he was healthy enough, no one could stop him. In his best games he made modern chess to look like a football.

  perfidious: <fred>, Tal-Gufeld is mentioned also in the Pirc monograph by Keene and Botterill from the early 1970s.

In this tabiya of the QGD Semi-Tarrasch which may be reached via several openings, I have my doubts about 10....Nf6, though it has been played many times by strong players.
