[Me talking with Mikhail Tal, with Dennis Seawald on the side]

During Tal's visit to Boston, National Master Bill Lukowiak hosted an all-night chess party where I and a number of other players enjoyed playing blitz with Tal, who was extremely nice. In my game, he kindly pointed out "Sooner or later...this.", referring to a likely future pawn move of his that would destroy my position (not that I ever had a chance against him).
