Note: I am not playing Daily Chess for the time being. Please do not send me Daily Chess match invitations. 
Is someone testing me, everyday I live? Well, the best in me is all I have to give.
I can pretend I am the Wind, and I don't know if I will pass this way again.

Mikhail Tal is a Magician

Mikhail TalMikhail Tal (1936-1992), the eighth world champion, was known as the "Magician of Riga". Tal was famous for his unpredictable, intuitive sacrifices - many of which were scarcely believable. Nevertheless, he set so many traps and problems for his opponents that they often worked in practice. Indeed, he once said: "There are two types of sacrifices: correct ones, and mine." His play was all about creating complications and unusual situations. Although he sought sharp, crazy positions, he typically didn't out-calculate his opponents, but rather out-imagined them.
