Mikhail Tal Fans

  • International 
  • Formed: Apr 13, 2009
  • This is the group created for Mikhail Tal Fans! Mikhail Tal (November 9, 1936 – June 28, 1992) was a Soviet-Latvian chess player, a Grandmaster, and the eighth World Chess Champion. He was often called "The magician from Riga" for his daring combinational style. Both The Mammoth Book of the World's Greatest Chess Games (Burgess, Nunn & Emms 2004) and Modern Chess Brilliancies (Evans 1970) include more games by Tal than any other player. Tal was also a highly-regarded chess writer. Many authorities consider him to have been the greatest attacking player of all time.

  • yur opinion... yes, Tal was extremely creative/aggressive/tactical player.. But there were several other players who could do the same with similar personality...

  • I just wanted to say that chess in general is far too boring without Tal around. His courage and brilliant play made me fall in love with chess. Long live Tal!
