Mikhail Tal was one of the greatest geniuses of chess history. The magician from Riga, as he was known because of his dazzling attacking games, took the chess world by storm and in 1961, at the age of twenty-three, he won the world championship.
Karsten Muller has created an instructional chess tactics guide by explaining the secrets of Tal’s breathtaking combinations. The authors have selected from his games one hundred exercises which will teach amateurs how they can finish a game with a stunning sacrifice.
As a special feature prominent grandmasters like Spassky, Yusupov and Kramnik describe their personal impressions and games with Tal. The result is both an intimate portrait of Mikhail Tal and an instructive guide.
“Exceptional, instructive and entertaining. Definitely a milestone in the various publications about Mikhail Tal.”
