 In this video from Remote chess academy, you’ll watch a game from the World Chess Championship – 1960, between the two great chess players, Mikhail Tal and Mikhail Botvinnik.

wc1960

It is a very famous chess game where Tal, the Magician from Riga, who is well known for his sacrifices, gave up material in search of the initiative.

There is a famous quote by Tal:

“There are two types of sacrifices: correct ones and mine”.

Maybe that’s excluded from this particular game (and many other games as well). :)

  • how to place your pieces actively
  • the art of ‘avoiding’ retreats
  • practical play
  • and much more

I guess that’s enough talking. :) You can watch the video below:
