Before Tal, there was beauty in chess, but when Tal moves a piece, we witness magic! Image

I was wet-nursed on Tal's games and I recommend looking at his games closely to anyone who wants to get better at tactics. Thanks for bringing us this game, it is but one example in a plethora of exciting Tal games.

Did you ever have the chance to meet him, or play him?

I don't think I've ever seen a chess game like this. The tactics are so weird and wonderful that I was laughing out loud! Joyous stuff. You gotta feel sorry for the guy playing black :eye: . Thanks for the video.

Very beautiful game! And nice analysis. This comes at a great time for me as I'm working a lot on tactics. Any more Tal games in the future would also be appreciated!

Rather annoyingly though, my instincts seem to be better than my calculation. I got the correct move every time, within seconds even, but once I started calculating I confused myself and ended up choosing something else :( Maybe I should take up Bullet instead :D

@sfarmer: I did! - albeit only in a simul back in 1988. I was a pretty good player back then, too (assuming I'm a pretty good player now); as you may recall from a few weeks ago I drew with Walter Browne that year in a regular tournament game. Against Tal, however, I was crushed like a bug. :)

@Flint: It would be tempting for me to do almost nothing but Tal games - they're intoxicating!

Well, I would have nothing against that, for a while at least. Maybe it could be the next mini-series when the Ruy Lopez is finished...like, the Quick Top 100 Games of Tal or something...that should only take a year or two!

That's too funny Flint! Image But you know how Dennis can get with his 'Short Series' series!

great vid - thx!
I use to play the 150 attack against the pirc - easy to play, solid and dangerous - but this austrian attack looks more convinving - no wonder, that it was favoured by Bobby Fischer - I will definitely try it next time :twisted:
