Sep-04-07  Whitehat1963: WOW! I don't know what else to say!
Sep-04-07  MaxxLange: <TigerPawns> Can you give some lines after, say, 16. Qh5+ Kg8 17. Qxe8? I'm not sure that really is a clearer win.
Sep-04-07  Paladin88doug: As my ol' buddy Larry says, GET ER DUN!
Sep-11-07  duplex: pity he died so early..The last of romantic grandmaster
Nov-06-07  stefanoleccardi: A genius... no other words !
Nov-06-07  RookFile: Some people are known as endgames specialists. I think in Tal's case, he was known as an 'end game' specialist.
Sep-13-08  pom nasayao: 21. Bxe6 is not a good one. The rook check from f1 to f8 will be useless since the BQueen at c5 still guards the f8 square, after W's promotion at f8. 21. Qe5 is the best move since it deflects the control of the BQueen at f8, thereby the WR check on the f8 square will not put to naught.
Dec-20-08  java77: a marvelous pice of work. well done
Dec-30-08  MaxxLange: It is a shame that Tal never played the Lone Pine tournament in America. Or did he? What is "Knotty Ash"?

  Benzol: <MaxxLange> <What is "Knotty Ash"?>

A rich suburb of Liverpool, England if I'm not mistaken.

Dec-31-08  ughaibu: Knotty Ash? How could anyone not know? http://www.kendoddshows.com/

MaxxLange,
According to the following website Tal never played at Lone Pine:

Sep-03-09  WhiteRook48: 22 Rf8+ produces an amusing position
Sep-15-09  newzild: Presumably "knotty ash" was all that was left of the "lone pine" after Tal's fireworks...
Aug-24-10  dondiegodelavega: Wow, this pure levitation!
Nov-03-11  Wild Bill: I just saw a wonderful set of Tal games from Kingcrusher that culminates with this little gem.

  profK: One dreams about plucking out a combination like this..I miss Tal !!
Nov-03-11  pmukerji: Truly awesome game. Although what happens if 21. .. Qxc4 instead of what was played? Does black escape?
Nov-03-11  guaguanco: 21...Qxc4
22. Qxe6+ Qxe6
23. Rf8+
Nov-03-11  pmukerji: Yup...thanks
Feb-18-13  deeeeeepa: why tal played the move(21 Qe5)?????

  AylerKupp: <deeeeee> To remove one of the defenders of f8 so that 22.Rf8+ became possible (after 22...Rxf8 (forced), 23.exf8(Q)#). Or, maybe he just didn't see that he left his queen hanging and decided to make the best of it. ;-)
Nov-15-16  clement41: So funny
Nov-15-16  offramp: I wonder if there ever was a knotty ash at Knotty Ash.

There used to be a single pine at Lone Pine until it was cut down, that's why the place is now called No Pines.
