Nov-15-11  Knuckle Sandwich: Neishtadt could have caught the great Mischa with a problem-like move that would have trapped the latter's rook in the centre of the board. Instead of 33. ef6 he could have played 33. ♔b2!! and after 33... fe5 34. ♔c3 ♗a6 35. h5! ♗b5 36. ♖h1! a5 37. ♖e1 a4 38. ♖e5 ab3 39. ♔d4 bc2 40. ♖e1 white wins!
Nov-15-11  Knuckle Sandwich: Tal just couldn't pass up a the exchange sacrifice 37... ♖d3?! when 37 ... ♔d7 would have maintained the balance. But, it appears he offered his opponent another chance to win the game. What would the great Latvian attacker have done if Neishtadt had played 43. ♖f8! instead of 43. g5? ?
