May-18-04  Whitehat1963: Typical complexity from Tal.
Jun-26-06  think: Why is white won here?
Was this won on time?

  Sneaky: White is much better, just by pure material count. Ignoring the pawns, you have ♖♖♘♘ vs ♕♖♘ and we all know that a queen is better than a rook and a knight. But we can't ignore those pawns: the queenside pawns will march down the board wipe out any hopes Black has of making a fortress.

  perfidious: The next year, Tal would face 6.Bg5 himself and come up with the stronger 6....Qa5 in V Heuer vs Tal, 1972, a line which achieved some popularity for Black in the 1980s, though having the drawback that White could play for a draw thus: 7.Bxf6 exf6 8.cxd5 Bb4 9.dxc6 Bxc3+ 10.bxc3 Qxc3+ 11.Ke2 0-0 12.f3 Re8+ 13.Kf2 Qe3+.
