chocobonbon: I've made this point before: In "Combinations, the Heart of Chess" Chernev quoted Fine as saying "I've never met anyone, not even Alekhine, who had a keener eye for the purely combinative in chess." I submit that "purely combinative" is not synonymous with "tactics". Tactics is ...

chocobonbon: {41. ...Kh5; 42.Qh7+, Kg4; 43.h3+, Kxg3; 44.Qd3+,♕e3; 45.♕xe3+, ♔h4; 45.♖h7# A Keres-like finish by Barcza, the second of two wins against Keres in the database - played on successive days in Tallinn. But why 39. ...Kh7 letting the Rook penetrate ? Time ...

chocobonbon: In the note to Whites's 18th I think ♕a1 must have been meant as e1 is occupied.
   Jan-15-09 Tal vs M Mukhin, 1972 (replies)
chocobonbon: Interesting how many of Tal's games end after the opponent's last move.
   Jan-15-09 Barcza vs Tal, 1971 (replies)
chocobonbon: Not in _My Life and Games_? For nearly anyone else this would be their "Immortal Game" but, truth be told IMHO, all Tal's great combinations are immortal. Thank you,

chocobonbon: "If" is a big word.

chocobonbon: <Alimatok> Don't forget the Black Queen at c7. Chancho looks better & better.

chocobonbon: <Ilikefruits> I played online briefly a few years ago but it wasn't Yahoo. Don't recall my handle but it wasn't Chocobonbon although equally silly. On the site you chose the desired level of competition. I caught a few ringers and rang off. Then I discovered

chocobonbon: <who> What more can you ask of sacs than that the opponent has to keep giving back material with the continuing consequence that your position improves & results in Checkmate? It's like a Capablanca game vs. a minor Master with a dose of the Tal whimsy. Doesn't get much ...
   Dec-27-08 Tal vs Karpov, 1987 (replies)
chocobonbon: I apologize for harping on this game but it is an extraordinary game. After checking the earlier posts I see that <Honza Cervenka> had suggested Nf6! on move 22!! I think that is a stupendous shot & as far as I can see, no one ever commented on it. Hats off to you, Honza ...
