En passant error beauty : Mikhail Tal

Jun 29, 2016, 7:03 PM |

This week the old chess master showed me the game Tal-Antoshin from 1957.

In that game Mikhail Tal got a won position, but sadly he made a calculation error in the winning "fireworks" line.

After the game a few other grandmasters showed the winning variation to Tal and rather young Mikhail was "in pieces", ending the tourney with only draws and a loss.

The tactical fireworks that could appear in the game are priceless though !
