|Feb-23-10|| ||thewanderingpen: My first post right here at Chessgames.com. :) Well, I got 69 points out of this one. I don't know if that's good enough. Will play through more of Tal's Games.|
Anyway, Fritz and other chess playing computers are too attached on the material side of things. Their evaluations aren't always the best.
Nd5 has a lot of merits. For the cons first, YES, it does drop a piece BUT for serious compensation.
After Black took the Knight, you can see that the Queen and Bishop are exiled from the Kingside. This in turn imprisons the a8-Rook. There you have it - 3 pieces clustered and doing nothing on the Queenside.
On the other hand, White has opened the diagonal for his Bishops and Queen with the Knight sac. And with advanced pawns on the crucial side of the board (Kingside) ready to ram themselves up on the opposing monarch's pawn barrier, the attack should go through smoothly. And in Tal's hand, it did as expected.
I'm sure a lot of guys here know that. But just felt like sharing. (Just exercising my annotating skills :D)
|Feb-23-10|| ||moronovich: <thewanderingpen> Wellcome on board.Hope you will find it fruitfull !|
And a most charming handle ,btw.
(Annotating is a very fine way to get closer to the game IMO.)A couple of times I analyzed with Larsen.Quite an experience ;)- and a privellege.
|Feb-23-10|| ||thewanderingpen: For real?! I've always dreamt of analyzing with a master. HOWEVER, here in the Philippines, finding a master to sit down with is kind of hard.|
Thanks for the warm welcome buddy!
|Apr-28-10|| ||abstract: the most notable game of TAL only today its GOTD.. CG you upset me :(|
|Apr-28-10|| ||DiscoJew: Vintage Tal.|
|Apr-28-10|| ||Check It Out: Tal; what a style!|
|Apr-28-10|| ||apexin: <abstract> im 99% sure that it was GOTD a couple of times before.|
|Apr-28-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: <CG> This was the 10th game of the match, if you'd like to update the scoresheet...|
|Apr-28-10|| ||hstevens129: Why not 21...Bxd5? How does White convert the win after than?|
|Apr-29-10|| ||kevin86: There is no escape: 37...d5+ loses to 38 xd5 xd5 39 xf8+ and white is the exchange and a few pawns up-otherwise,black will be mated|

|Aug-07-10|| ||hstevens129: 21...Bxd5 22.Rxg7 Kf8 23.Qh5 with too many threats
or 23.Qg4 Be6 24.Re1 Qe8 25.Rxh7 Kg8
|Nov-04-10|| ||sevenseaman: One of the finest puns! And a quality game.|
|Apr-04-11|| ||redorc19: truthfully an unsound sac.|
|May-04-11|| ||kingmundi: aw1988 posted a more complete quote of OMGP II, but I wanted to requote one particular line again. Kasparov OMGP II, p 450, gives several variations saying the knight sacrifice was unsound. There are 3 lines, but the third one is|
3) 18. Rde1! (the most menacing) 18...Bd8 19. Qh3 Ne5! (but not 19...Bb6? 20. Bxg6! fxg6 21. Re7) 20. Qh6 Bb6! 21. fxe5 (21. Bxb6? Nxd3+ 22. cxd3 Qxb6 23. h4 Bg4) 21...Bxd4 22. Re4! Bf2! (22...Qa7 23. Rh4 f5 24. exf6 Be3+ 25. Kb1 Rxf6! 26. Re1 Bf5 27. Rxe3 Rf7 28. Re1 Qf2, and in this variation by Burgess Black has the advantage: 29. Rc1 Bxd3 30. cxd3 Qd2 31. Rh3 Re8 32. Qh4 a5) 23. e6 (23. Rf1?! Qa7 24. e6 fxe6 25. dxe6 Bb7 26. Rxb4 Rae8 and wins) 23...fxe6 24. dxe6.
|May-04-11|| ||kingmundi: However, I wanted to point out that most computers actually suggest moving the other rook to the open file.
18. Rhe1 Bd8 19. Qh3 Ne5 20. Qh6 Bb6
And one crazy line leading to a draw is...
21. f5 gxf5 22. Bxb6 Ng4 23.
Bd4 Nxh6 24. gxh6 f6 25. Re7 Rf7 26. Re8+ Rf8 27. Re7 Rf7
And another is...
21. f5 gxf5 22. Bxb6 b3 23.
axb3 Ng4 24. Bd4 Nxh6 25. gxh6 f6 26. Re7 Rf7 27. Re8+ Rf8 28. Re7 Rf7
|Sep-11-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: I like it like that !!|
|Oct-02-11|| ||Rook e2: Nd5 is a nice move on the board, but I doubt the '!' in the notation. Fritz' openingsbook gives Nd5 a '?'|
|Nov-29-11|| ||Penguincw: Tal taking advantage of the absolute pin on the on f8.|
|Mar-23-12|| ||Jafar219: Nice game.|
|Jul-03-12|| ||talisman: <Rook e2> yep, but it him 20 years!
|Aug-15-12|| ||Manoloo: CruyffTurn: <sfairat: Not to brag or anything, but even as a much lower rated player I think there is no way Tal would win this game against me.> Sorry, but I'm peeing myself with laughter at this comment. This has to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever read, on any site, ever. Calm CruyffTurn, maybe sfairat is Magnus Carlsen... who knows??|
|Aug-19-12|| ||Conrad93: It's amazing how accurate Tal was.
Most players could not have made this sacrifice work.
|Aug-21-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Tal vs Larsen, 1965.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF TAL.
Your score: 75 (par = 58)
PS. Par is now 59.
