What were some of the most popular openings played by Mikhail Tal, from white and black? And how can you find this info for basically any player is there some good online resource to find a % breakdown of opening preferences by player?

chessgames.com gives a good breakdown of the openings of any player. It's a bit limited if you don't subscribe to the site, but even without paying you get to see their most popular choices.

Just noticed the spongey guy's post: follow his link. (Hey, @kindaspongey, I'm still the one on the right.)
