  sackman: 23 fxg5! and 25 gxh6!! wonderful attacking chess from Taimanov. This could be a GOTD! (Who said the English is boring??)
May-30-13  phil6875: 23. fxg5 is not that strong since Black has a nice response in 23...Qd6 24. Rxf7+ Kg8 25. g6 Be6 26. e4 Bxf7 27. Qxh6 Bxg6 28. hxg6 Qd4+ 29. Kh1 Qg7 30. Qxg7+ Kxg7 31. Rxc5 e5 (or Rbd8) and Black has definite edge.
