Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-01-12  ughaibu: Tal gets rook and two pieces for his queen, but seems to have seriously misjudged the position. How about 20...Kg7?
Apr-01-12  cunctatorg: A lovely game with fine manoeuvrings against weaknesses! If that game withstands PC analyses, then it's worthy a GotD promotion...
Apr-01-12  master of defence: How white wins after 63. Nxd5?
Apr-01-12  Edeltalent: <master of defence> 64.Qg5+ picks up the knight then.

  AylerKupp: <master of defence> The easiest win is 63...Nxd5 64.Qg5+ followed by 65.Qxd5. Rybka 4.1 indicates a mate in 14 (it's really mate in 12, I don't know why Rybka miscounted) for White at d=21 after 63...Nxd5 64.Qg5+ Kf7 65.Qxd5+ Re6+ 66.Kf3 c4 67.a5 c3 68.Qc5 Rf6+ 69.Ke4 Re6+ 70.Kd5 Kf6 71.Qd4+ Ke7 72.Qg7+ Kd8 73.Kxe6 Kc8 74.a6 and now either 74...Kb8 75.Qb7# or 74...Kd8 75.Qd7#
