   Dec-14-12 Tal vs Smyslov, 1959 (replies)
standingtal: It's strange seeing things in the cold light of computer analysis. A dazzling array of attacks is diminished to the simple blunder of 18. Nf6 where things would have remained equal with Bf6, had Smyslov seen the queen sac.
   Dec-13-12 Taimanov vs Tal, 1973
standingtal: Nice combination by Taimanov starting with Nd5
   Nov-30-12 N Aratovsky vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1954
standingtal: According to my metal friend, 32. ...Nd5 is the mistake here, and Rbe6 will see W out of danger half a pawn ahead. The idea is to exchange l-square Bs and start attacking the weak pawns on d6 and f5 with doubled Rs. As it is, the vulnerable R left on b3 invites a4 and is ...
   Nov-30-12 R Nezhmetdinov vs D Zorigt, 1965
standingtal: 13. ... Bb7 was preferable to Bf8. Rc1 was a deep move that stamps authority on the important c-file. Nc6 is a weak thematic move that here invites Ne3, and from then on Nezh bosses the middlegame. 18. ... Nc4? loses a pawn and ultimately the centre. 27. ... f6 would have ...
   Nov-30-12 Ivanchuk vs Korchnoi, 1989 (replies)
standingtal: After Qxd6, the Q threatens both d4 and f4, forcing e3, and after Rfc8 Korchnoi has doubled Rs, a passed pawn and more material.
   Nov-15-12 Illya Nyzhnyk (replies)
standingtal: I predict that this guy is going to become the second youngest 2800+ player ever.
   Oct-25-12 Karpov vs S Belousov, 1961 (replies)
standingtal: Karpov's moves after move 31 pretty much present themselves: Q&P for his R&B then kick the B to collect on D5. Of more interest to me is how he manoeuvres his R to draw out black's defenders ...
   Oct-14-12 Guerra vs Tal, 1989
standingtal: I'm not sure that this is a legitimate Tal game. This is listed under another site as Eduard GUERoff vs Juan C Rodrigues TALavera, Sevilla 1989. Since no "Guerra" exists, I'm inclined to believe this was a database mix-up.
   Jun-08-12 P Potemkin vs Alekhine, 1912 (replies)
standingtal: I'm sorry, but that's such an ignorant comment I couldn't let it pass. Hitler's racist ideology was apparent from the moment he wrote "Mein Kampf", and he began abusing Jews and other minorities from the moment he came into power. There was nothing whatsoever in his conduct that
