  FSR: This guy was pretty strong. 11...Nxd4, exchanging a center pawn for a rook pawn, seemed good to me, but apparently it's bad to weaken one's king position that way, especially if your opponent is Tal. No one else in the database played that move. Games Like Tal vs F Rhine, 1988 But it is possible for Black to play worse than I did. See Gulko vs Kaidanov, 1994; J Stocek vs Meduna, 1999.
Sep-26-13  Jim Bartle: I thought you took the pawn just to have an exciting, wide open game with Tal.

  chancho: <FSR> Resigning right on time.

(No defense to h6.)

Must have been a thrill and a half playing Tal.

  FSR: When I looked at the position before playing 11...Nxd4, White's attack didn't seem that strong to me. Apparently this guy is a better attacker than I am. :-)

Yes, it was very cool playing such an immortal player. He died only four years later, sadly. Not too surprising; he looked terrible, although he was still an awesomely strong player.

  perfidious: <FSR>: Have to agree; while then fifty-one, Tal looked well into his sixties when we met, the week before this game.
May-25-15  tjipa: Sadly, it seems 11...Nxd4 was not a novelty after all, it was played in game Zinn-Marovic back in 1966, not available here, though. On the bright side, you followed a player who was an IM then (in 1966). Sadly (again), he lost that game. To finish on the bright side, your novelty was 14...Nxc3 and my Fritz says, it is better than 14...Qf6, played by Marovic. 14...b6 is even better, though.
