True2theGame: A masterful chess duel by two of the worlds most brilliant chess minds! I'll have to find a way to work that 27. Bxd6 sacrifice for mate or material into some of "my" considerably less brilliant blitz games!!!

True2theGame: Brutal Tactics! Bravo...

True2theGame: <WhiteRook48> The problem is: 84. Kd7 …Kb6 85. Nb3 …Be3 86. Kd6 …Bd1 87. Na1 …Bd4 and the Bishop pair mating sequence is thematic. Nice technical grind by Tal to insure the teeth of those Bishops sank deep into the flesh of that Knight and secure the win! If 84 Kb7 ...Kb5

True2theGame: Very Nice! Opened King positions in the middle game allow tremendous opportunity for beautiful creativity... To his credit white began weaving this mating net at move 19. In my limited scope I totally missed it. Bravo!!!

True2theGame: You NEVER see this mating pattern in OTB play! It seems more rare than smothers mates... Wow a text/puzzle book mate at Expert + level play... What's next?
 
   Jul-31-09 Tal vs D A Mohrlok, 1962 (replies)
 
True2theGame: A nice tight game... No Riga-rous antics, just a straight forward pummelling!!! Impressive all the same.
 
   Jul-27-09 Nakamura vs S Muhammad, 2004 (replies)
 
True2theGame: Dead even at move 27! Not bad for an IM playing the black pieces against arguably the strongest tactician of modern day chess. I am surprised he (Muhammad)missed the last one though, it was quite elementary in nature.
 
   Jul-14-09 Kotov vs Bondarevsky, 1936 (replies)
 
True2theGame: The funny thing is I saw the Queen sac almost instantly in the book of chess problems I was reading, However the preceding Rook sac and complicated maneuvering of the pieces to get the position at move ...25 clearly is beyond my tactical abilities. Great Stuff!!!
 
   Jul-14-09 M Christoffel vs J Mieses, 1946 (replies)
 
True2theGame: Reinfeld says he was well over 80 at the time this game was played 1945... That is a MONSTER combination for anybody, much less an 80+ fellow. I should hope to play that well at 80!

True2theGame: <Samagonka> I respectfully disagree, the attack so well exucuted up to the Queen sac that it was actually called for in the position. The Motif had been webbed beautifully and the mating net was inevitable. Not something you see very often in IM+ level games...
