Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-08-07  Grega: A true Tal gem.
Dec-12-12  Llawdogg: A nice Nimzo Indian.
Apr-30-16  Delboy: Not the best known Tal masterpiece, maybe because of the early exchange of queens (which he uses so well!). At move 19 most players would be thinking of whether to offer a draw, and not of the fireworks ensuing after f5, e5 and Rxd3. As impressive as any of his other great performances
May-01-23  Zugzwangovich: Not that it really matters now, but other sources give the Ukbekistani player Evgeny as the Mukhin who lost to Tal in this game.
