Beauty in chess. One game of Mikhail Tal.
Why do you love chess? Пост на Русском
I like chess because they are beautiful!
Here is a story
Once when 8th World Champion Mikhail Tal played against GM Antoshin he thought at some point "If there was a rook on c8 ..."
But in reality, there was no rook on c8 in the position. Somehow Tal did not find a win. But there was one, and it was nice :). Tal liked to show both positions to his friends afterwards.
And here is a bonus! Unique beauty! I spent about 10-15 minutes to solve this one right.
