Mikhail Tal’s Attacking Genius

thumb22Let's take a look at one of the big moments in the development of any chess player: choosing a style. Perhaps the best way to do this is to analyze the games of famous players and see which ones you like best. To help you with this, I am going to demonstrate you great examples by Mikhail Tal.

Part of improving as a chess player is opening yourself up to new ideas – and Tal’s games are full of moves that radically overhaul the position, ripping his opponent out of their comfort zone and hurling them into the center of chaos.

Here’s what you can expect to see:
• Tal letting his Queen be captured just so he can open the e-file! He follows up with a bishop sac and his dazed and confused opponent soon finds himself giving back all the material. Phenomenal chess.
• The time Tal’s opponent exchanged Queens off – and Tal refused to recapture! Here you’ll learn how other considerations outweigh material – even a Queen!
• When World Champions collide – what happened when Tal met Spassky… yes, more sacrifices!
• A beautiful finish to defeat the great Bent Larsen in the 1965 Candidates.
