Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-08-04  Everett: Tal tries again to mix it up with Seirawan in the Nimzo, but despite going off the beaten path with d6, comes up empty. Amazing, Seirawan never lost to Tal. Of course Tal was long past his prime during these years, he had somewhat of a comeback, and was as high as #2 sometime during these years.

<An amusing incident took place on my way to the board. On the way to the playing hall I shared an elevator with Kortchnoi. I told him of my concern for Tal, as Mischa had been in poor health for most of the tournament. He looked at me in surprise. "What?" he said. "If you have the chance, kill him!">

Too true!
