Mikhail Tal Fans

  • International 
  • Formed: Apr 13, 2009
  • This is the group created for Mikhail Tal Fans! Mikhail Tal (November 9, 1936 – June 28, 1992) was a Soviet-Latvian chess player, a Grandmaster, and the eighth World Chess Champion. He was often called "The magician from Riga" for his daring combinational style. Both The Mammoth Book of the World's Greatest Chess Games (Burgess, Nunn & Emms 2004) and Modern Chess Brilliancies (Evans 1970) include more games by Tal than any other player. Tal was also a highly-regarded chess writer. Many authorities consider him to have been the greatest attacking player of all time.

  • I recommend opening it to play as such? The Queen's Gambit also can play the attack?

  • As an American it's probably my patriotic duty to consider Bobby Fischer my favorite player, but for me it's Tal all the way. If I could bring back one historical player to compete in the modern scene it would be Tal.
