Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-07-04  chess man: an obvious win for white
Apr-20-06  DARTHPLAGUEIS: a true dark jedi masterpiece showing two light sabres do not make one stronger---the dark force supresses the dual attack right up til the moment of sacrifice.the dark side is strong in this one.
Jan-31-11  SvetlanaBabe: Tal was such a good player.At least every bit as good as top modern Grandmasters, probably better.
Mar-04-12  iamdeafzed: I posit that black lost this game precisely because he stuck to making too many Book moves out of the opening. Ok, so that was a horrible pun, but I couldn't help myself.

In other news, 34.) Rxf6 was a nice move by Tal...really taking advantage of his knight with that one.
