Mikhail Tal's Best Games Of Chess

Mikhail Tal's Best Games Of Chess

Product type: Printed book

Peter Clarke

In this acknowledged classic of chess literature Clarke annotates 50 of Tal's best games from the period from 1951 to 1960. During this period Tal transformed himself from a talented Latvian player to World Champion, producing some of the best sacrificial attacking play ever seen.

As a leading British player of the time and a fluent reader of Russian, Peter Clarke is able to give an idea of the impact Tal's play had on his contemporaries and gain access to the Soviet commentary from the period.

It was during this period that Tal was at his best, taking huge risks to lure his opponents into incalculable, complex battles, often triumphing much to the disbelief of his Grandmaster colleagues.

This is a reprint of a book first published in 1961. In English Descriptive notation (1.P-K4, N-KB3; etc.)

Published 2002, softback, descriptive notation, 201 pages.
