Mikhail Tal vs NN
Widely regarded as a creative genius and one of the best attacking players of all time, Tal played in a daring, combinatorial style. His play was known above all for improvisation and unpredictability. Every game, he once said, was as inimitable and invaluable as a poem. He was often called “Misha”, a diminutive for Mikhail, and “The magician from Riga”. Both The Mammoth Book of the World’s Greatest Chess Games and Modern Chess Brilliancies include more games by Tal than any other player. In addition, Tal was a highly regarded chess writer. He also previously held the record for the longest unbeaten streak (95 games) in competitive chess history, until Ding Liren‘s 100 game streak from 9 August 2017 to 11 November 2018.
