Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-08  talisman: wow...this is some advanced variation. the first 7 moves resemble tal in 61.much better results however.
Mar-17-09  Chicago Chess Man: This is one of those games where I did horribly on guess the moves. Way over my head.
Mar-18-09  A.G. Argent: <talisman> Yes, wonderfully aggresive. Immediately attacking on BOTH sides and once the b file was open for the Rook after 19...bxc5, the end was nigh. Karpov was steamrolled. Quite Tal-esque. Oh, and I just realized the excellent pun with your handle. More a play on words, I suppose but nevertheless, you're obviously a Tal guy.
