  Honza Cervenka: 21.Ned4 was an unfortunate slip. Instead of that 21.Nfd4 was necessary with idea to meet 21...Qxd5(?) with 22.Nc3. 23.Ne6 was a blunder in already bad situation, which only shortened white's misery.

  Penguincw: Forking c2 (for a mate in 2) and the knight on e6 (a piece).
Feb-28-12  screwdriver: Tal was about to unleash on white anyways.
Mar-27-12  screwdriver: Nice to revisit the same game from almost a month ago. Tal is always a pleasure to look at his games.
Aug-28-13  talisman: AND!...he was #3 in the world for a while
Dec-15-13  Mudphudder: This might be the most positional game Tal has ever played.
