Aug-06-04  Gbness: Yep, Tal would be lost, especially if Zilber could manage to capture the a-pawn and h-pawn. After a rook manages to capture the second a-pawn and they traded rooks, indeed, Zilber would win... good play by both, though.

  technical draw: 27.Rb1? Probably the losing move. An exchange of rooks would lead, at worse, to a draw.
Oct-01-07  sanyas: The Russian player in the park, played by Vasek Simek, who holds up the sign "For $5 a photo or a game with the man who beat Tal," was based on the real life of Israel Zilber.[1][2] Zilber, Latvian chess champion in 1958, defeated Tal in 1952[3], and during most of the 1980s was homeless and regarded as the best player at Madison Square Park.

I knew Zilber when he played in Washington Square Park in New York City during the 1980s. Does anybody know if he's still living ??
