Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-16-10  prithviraj: i never knew that tal was good end game player too
Dec-09-10  eyalbd: A future world champion must be good at everything in chess.

Some of them (WC's) are more defensive, some more attacking, some are have a perfect technique, but this is all relative.

They are good in all aspects of the game.

Thus, you will find quiet positional games of Tal, wild Capablanca games, brilliant tactical play from Petrosian and Karpov etc etc.

Dec-09-10  Kinghunt: This is nothing against Tal, but there's nothing particularly impressive about his endgame play here other than recognizing that with all pieces off, the pawn endgame is won for white. And even that is fairly obvious given white's queenside 2-1 pawn majority.
Mar-26-11  Xeroxx: He won this game long before the endgame. More like in the opening.

14...g5 from black looks suspect.
