Sample of ultra-dynamic play by Mikhail Tal

Mikhail Tal, 8th world champion in chessThe eighth world champion Mikhail Tal and his games are very inspirational for many players. If you want to study more tactic and get feeling for ultra-dynamic positions and intuitive sacrifices I would highly recommend to study his games.

Tal’s sacrifices were not always correct, but they created mesh on the board and Tal was able to orientate himself better than his opponents in those complicated positions.

Here is one example. As you will see, black had a chance to draw the game, but he missed it under the pressure.

I wish I had that courage to sacrifice the bishop on e6 square in my games too :)

    Tal was a great talent,much missed.
    I would have liked to see Tal in his prime play kasparov.

    I think this quote from the great man himself sums him up
    “I drink, I smoke, I gamble, I chase girls –
    but postal chess is one vice I don’t have.”

    If his health had been better the kidney trouble,
    held him back for a long time till he had it sorted.
    I think he would have been world champion longer or regained the title.

    I agree with you. It is a pity he had such attitude to his life. On the other side, if he would have lived an ascetical life, it would have not been Tal.
