Ladies and Beasts of the Night. Today I bring you Vladimir Simagin. A renowned tactician who happily went toe-to-toe with some of the Heavyweights of Chess Past such as Tal and Korchnoi. A player for whom creativity perched high above the actual box score of the struggle. A player who raised the Game in others through his Maximus efforts spanning the 64 squares. Ah, an errant knight on more than an errand for our beloved Princess Caissa. Did you know that he was Smyslovs second at the 1953 Candidates Tournament? Did you know that David Bronstein really liked him? Did you know that he is still ALIVE! Now you do.
