Mikhail Tal competes against Anatoly Karpov in a blitz game played in Brussels, 1987. What will be the result when The Magician from Riga, in his waning years, battles one of the very best masters of strategy, Anatoly Karpov?
redfiredragon: Certainly not at Blitz Tal won in 1988 as was pointed out. In 1971 Fischer was 3.5 points ahead of Tal (2nd) in the strongest Blitz in Herzeg Novi!
12. ... Be6 is horrible, the rook sac is hilarious
capablanca is best
Tal is one of the best players in attack in the history!
umm.... part 2?
i even thought the word TALent originated from Tal!dont know how long one has to wait to see an attacking genius like him!
Tal is the one man I think I would like to have met just as much or more than Fischer when they were both alive still.
Tal is the real master in OTB even against the best
That was a fun game.
Queen is not considered as a good defender.
