  perfidious: Tal's 25.Ne5 is a beautiful interpolation, as either 25....Qxe6 26.Nxg6+ or 25....Rff8 26.Nxg6+ cost Black his queen.
Sep-15-11  Bryan14: Can't kolarov go for a perpetual after 36.Qxb7 ???
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: Black doesn't have a perpetual after 35...Qxd6 36.Qxb7 Qd1+ 37.Kh2 Qd6+ 38.g3.
Jan-07-12  King Death: The move 25.Ne5 was very pretty but I think Tal could have played 25. c4 too. Once the queen moves then 26.ef is played and I don't think Black would survive for too long with his material disadvantage and weak e pawn.
Oct-28-15  mikealando: Tal the magnificent
Feb-10-20  paganpa: Yes, 25. c4 looks good (better) for White. Also, instead of 29. Bxf6, 29. Nxe8!! looks even stronger. E.g., 29... Bxh4 30. Bxh4 Qd2 31. Re4 Qd5 32. Re3 g5 33. Bg3 Kf8 34. Nc7 Qd8 (34... Qd1+ 35. Kh2 Ke7 36. Rf3 Nf4 37. Rxf4 gxf4 38. Bh4+ Kd6 39. e7 Kxc7 40. e8=Q+-) 35. e7+ Qxe7 36. Rxe7 Kxe7 37. Be5 Nf4 38. Bxf4 gxf4 39. Kh2 Kd7 40. Na8+-.
