Sep-24-16  tjipa: I suggest inclusion of the game Matanovic-Mititelu from Budapest zt of 1960, a brilliant victory Tal mentions in the annotations to his 1st game with Botvinnik in 1960. The game is to be found, say, in 365chess. It goes like this. 1.e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 Ba5 6. b4 cxd4 7. Qg4 Ne7 8. Qxg7 Rg8 9. Qxh7 dxc3 10. bxa5 Nbc6 11. f4 Qxa5
