  perfidious: <Resignation Trap> In the background is the game Antoshin vs Tolush, 1957, with Antoshin present, anyway!

I think the game in the background of that photo is actually Tolush vs Antoshin, 1957. The game you linked was played in the USSR Championship semifinal.

Jan-24-17  zanzibar: Korchnoi called Tal's play stereotyped, referring specifically to this game.

Hope we include a quote about that in the intro, or are we just bad-mouthing Petrosian?
