Mikhail Botvinnik

In this 1961 re-match for the World championship Mikhail Botvinnik surprised the chess world by regaining his title from the young champion Mikhail Tal. In contrast to the previous year's match Tal's tactical style was rendered ineffective by Botvinnik's solid, positional play and choice of openings.

This book contains all 21 games from the match with annotations by Botvinnik, Sveshnikov, Kotov, Smyslov, Ragozin and Tolush. It also includes Botvinnik's opening analysis for both matches, his thoughts on Tal and the match in general and Botvinnik's post match press conference. An excellent record of a fascinating match.

Published (2nd edition) 2017 (original 2004), softback, 126 pages.
