Oct-31-04  Everett: What is going on in this game... as strange a KI as I've seen. Was this a loss on time for Tal?
Oct-31-04  Everett: Why not 47...Rff1?

Now black will have major problems stopping the forward e-pawn. 48...Bf8 (trying to stop the e-pawn) 49.Ra7+ Ke8 49.Bc6+ Kd8 50.Rd7+ Kc8 51.b6 and Tal won't have time to attack the king.

If instead Tal plays 48,,,Rff1 then 49.Ra7+starts mate in a few

Nov-01-04  Cyphelium: <Everett> 47.- Rff1 48. b6 Rxe1+ 49. Kd2! and now

A/ 49.- Rxb1 50. b7 Rh8 (50.- Rxa1 51. b8Q and the position of black's king will tell; 50.- Rxb4 51. Rxh1 and Rh1-h7 will decide) 51. Rxb1 and the endgame is easily won, since there isn't anything black can do to stop white from playing Rc1-Rc7 etc.

B/ 49.- Rd1+ 50. Kc2 Rc1+ 51. Kb2 Rc8 (51.- Rxb1+ 52. Rxb1 Rxb1+ 53. Kxb1 Kd6 54. b7 Kc7 55. e7) 52. Rxa4 and Ra1-a7 wins.
