Jul-12-05  lentil: of course, 19... fg?? 20. Qxg5+ Kh8 21. Qf6+ Kg8 22. Nf5
Aug-23-06  Runemaster: I love the way Korchnoi defends after Tal's speculative piece sac. Through the set of moves 19-24 ...Qg4/c5/Qg6/Be4/Rae8/Re6 Korchnoi feeds defensive pieces to his kingside, drives off the enemy knight and creates threats of his own, principally against g2.
Sep-21-07  kuna65: Why not 24 g4 ? Or is it lost for white already?
Jun-19-12  Whitehat1963: Tal looks like he's constantly throwing caution to the wind. Here, he offers and offers, but Korchnoi turns him down again and again. But I don't understand Tal's treacheries all the time.
Jun-19-18  malt: 12.Bc2 looks better,
19...Qg4!
21.N:b5 B:g2 Nice game.

  scutigera: <kuna65>: Already lost. One line is 24. g4 Re6 25. Bh4 Rfe8 26. Qf2 Bc6 27. Nf5 Qxg4+ and the Qs come off, followed by more of the same. White's exposed king and lack of material superiority on the K-side make the attack impossible to sustain: Black too has a K-side attack, and White can't both fend it off and press his own without allowing exchanges, each of which makes Black's extra Exchange and plus pawns matter more.
Feb-11-22  tbontb: Tal improvises with the dubious 12.Nd4 and Kortschnoj is characteristically pleased to grab the material. Tal attempts to justify his play with 18.Rxf6 but this is objectively unsound, leading to a lost position. Kortschnoj defends actively then slips with 21....Qg6 (better Be4) allowing 22.Be7 Be4 23. Bxf8 Rxf8 when White is worse but still has chances. However, Tal misses the opportunity and Kortschnoj consolidates smoothly.
