    It seems like Tal is almost too bored to win the game by such a simple and obvious king move. You find such moves in free tutorials for 100 ELO players. Not challenging enough for Tal.

It's all I think about, I'm hooked or should I say, rooked like a drug man, can't get enough. So thanks for turning me into an addict.

    Hi agadmator, the Slavicized pronunciation you have adopted is unheard of in Yiddish; his name would certainly be pronounced 'Tahl", as you pronounce it at 0:51. I'd imagine that most people called him 'Таль' during his life in the USSR, but the Yiddish name 'טאַל' is unambiguously pronounced 'tahl', as the vowel under the aleph is a patach and Yiddish does not distinguish between hard and soft 'L's. Tal most likely read his name to himself as you read it at 0:51.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I love Chess, I hardly ever win, I don't like losing, but I do like learning how a game is won. I far too often give a piece away by not observing it's situation and regretting it and feeling like a stooge. I have difficulty seeing beyond the third move and thus not grasping the probability of my moves being as successful as they could be. I have won some games with some big players like an Oregon State Chess Master, but only because I convinced him to play three games in a row when he was very tired; he won the first two, and I won the last because I took advantage of some mistakes he made, the same mistakes that I make (you would think I would learn from that?). So what the heck is my problem? Oh help Obi-Wan Kenobi or anyone else capable. P.S. Put some fluffy pillows on that couch so to be comfortable in Nostroviating, be it shaken, stirred, or just guzzled (Magnus style) before a good game of Chess.
