Tal Combo

Post by Nick Burrows » Fri Jun 12, 2020 7:35 pm

Dunno if this is obscure or well known, but I've not seen it before.

Taken from the book "Under the Surface" by Jan Markos.

Tal - NN (Stuttgart Simul 1958)


14..hxg5? 15.hxg5 Rxh1?



16.gxf6! Rxd1+ 17.Nxd1! Qxd2 18.fxg7!



:lol:

I think I saw that one in Snatched Opportunities On The Chessboard.

Jack...Bless You.

As soon as you mentioned it I remembered I took my newly acquired 'Snatched Opps' on our Honeymoon.
(only on a chess site can I admit this, hopefully a lot of you will be thinking...'nothing wrong with that!')

That was 1977. Wedding Anniversary is next week and I had actually forgotten all about it.
Now to off to get something online and hope I'm in time. The shops being closed will not be accepted as an excuse.

"Chess for Life" should do the trick

Seen this combo somewhere online last few weeks.

Never forget Wedding Anniversary. I think you should cook. :D

On 06.09.93 dropped our son off with my mum so we could go to show and have a nice meal.

On 07.09.03 my B'day she gave me my ticket to round 1 of the WCC.
