  keypusher: I have nothing to say; I just think there should be a kibitz on the first ever Korchnoi-Tal game.

I guess I do have one thing to say: why is this game on someone's <favorite games> list?

Nov-30-16  Howard: Good question !
Dec-19-16  dehanne: This is not the first Korchnoi-Tal game.

In his book Tal talks about a game against Korchnoi he lost in an Alekhine Defence during the 1953 Adult Team Championship of the USSR.

Why was he on the Adult Team? He was 17.
