  Sneaky: You can look a Tal game at random and have a pretty good chance to discover a beautiful gem like this.
Sep-08-06  whatthefat: Indeed - as long as you avoid all the short draws later in his career, along with games against his good friend Petrosian!

Have you done your 'gem ratio' for many players at their peak? :)

Sep-13-16  zydeco: Maybe 14...0-0-0 is better. It feels like Gipslis defends pretty well later on, but Tal is always a step ahead.
