    White's advantage is overwhelming and can win in a variety of ways.  Stockfish likes:  30 [+14.87]  1.Qe3 Rh1 2.Bc5 Rh2+ 3.Ke1 Rh1+ 4.Kf2 Rh2+ 5.Kg1 Rh1+ 6.Kxh1

    everything wins even an opposite coloured bishop endgame which is quite easy to reach

    and has the added bonus of not having to think at all

    White is 3 pawns up. The simplest approach is to trade all pieces.

    Bc5 first, to divert the black Queen... (albeit somewhat academic in a won game for White)

    At depth 32 the evaluation climbs even further:

    32 [+27.90]  1.Qe3 Bc6 2.dxc6 Qxc6 3.Qe2 Rf7 4.Re8+ Rf8 5.Qc4+ Qxc4 6.Rxf8+  (1708.80)

    Fortunately Tal wasn't encumbered by engine evaluations Cool

    Indeed, Tal played 1.Bc5 and won shortly afterwards after 1...Qxc5 2. Re8+ Rf8 3. Qe6+ Kh8 4.Qf7 when Black resigned.

    This is what the rest of the game might look like.
