CHESS

by Jan Brak

Clash between two world champions

Statue of Mikhail Tal in Riga

The Candidates Tournament of 1959 included the participation of former world champion Vassily Smyslov and future champion Mikhail Tal. The year before, Smyslov lost his title in a return match to Michael Botwinnik. The candidates tournament gave him a new chance to become challenger of the world champion. But his hopes were dashed by the incredible performance of Tal who crushed all his opponents and became the very convincing winner.

Tal started his career as a typhoon. He not only staggered the chess world by very good results at a young age (he was born in 1936) but foremost by his fearless style.
Thanks to his highly developed calculation abilities, he could take risks. Nearly every chessmaster fell victim to his agressive and explosive attacks and to his bluff.

Tal started his career as a typhoon. He not only staggered the chess world by very good results at a young age (he was born in 1936) but foremost by his fearless style.
Thanks to his highly developed calculation abilities, he could take risks. Nearly every chessmaster fell victim to his agressive and explosive attacks and to his bluff.

To become challenger of world champion Botwinnik, Tal had to overcome the rivalry -amongst others- of Smyslov. All the eight participants did play four times against each other. Tal won the two games with the white pieces against Smyslov. One game ended in a draw. The fourth game saw Smyslov as the winner.

The game that is presented here is very charasteristic of the playing style of Tal. At move 14 he sacrificies a piece and starts to attack the black king. At move 18 Smysloc, dazzed by the complications, makes a mistake, overlooking the sacrifice of the white queen. Only seven moves later he has to resign.

The game drew much attention and admiration and contributed highly to the reputation of Tal as a real magician.
