Your judgement, please

6/22/2009 – Playing a quiet move with the enemy king being completely exposed can be very difficult, and even an absolute attacking artist like World Champion Mikhail Tal often could not resist the temptation of giving check.

B) A mistake allowing the opponent a spectacular draw. C) This blunders the game - now a double attack decides for Black.
