Mikhail Botvinnik vs Mikhail Tal

  • #1

    Who would win if Mikhail Botvinnik at his peak played Mikhail Tal at his peak? They've played one another before but not when they were both at their best.

  • #2

    When do you consider Botvinnik to have been at his peak?

  • #3

    Well, actually it's hard to tell, he won the title, then lost it to Tal, and then won it back, honestly I don't know.

    If you are talking in terms of one peak match performance then Tal would win, based upon his 1960 form.  By the way I am figuring Botvinnik peaked in 1948.

    Def. Tal.
