Mar-10-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 20.Nc7! Seems so logical in retrospective.

  whiteshark: Maybe <19...Rf6> was a better defence sacrificing a ♙ for survival. But even after <20.Bxc8 Nxe6 21.Bxb7 Ra7 22.Rd7+ Ke8 23.R1d5> white is clearly better.
Sep-13-12  Truthpirate: Yes, Sisniega did what he could after loosing the exchange, but compensation was insufficient. Tal qualified in that Interzonal held in Taxco Mexico, behind Timman, Nogueiras and Spraggett. The dutch also gave Sisniega┬┤s Sicilian a major beat: Timman vs M Sisniega, 1985
Jun-19-19  Howard: Tal's 11.Bb5! was a novelty at the time. In fact, he used that move against Korchnoi at the 1985 Candidates event later that year, and he won that game, too.

  kingscrusher: Great pawn sac with 11.Bb5 for positional control
