Mikhail Tal's Best Games 1 1949-1959: The Magic of Youth


Nok en gang omtaler vi det "magiske" med Mikhail Tal. Her er i alle fall karrieren hans og partiene hans grundigere og skikkeligere presentert enn noen gang. Partier, en spiller og en bok å glede seg over.

Omtalen fra forlaget:

Mikhail Tal is one of the most celebrated chess players of all time. The eighth World Champion not only won the title at a record young age, but did so using a ferocious, high-risk attacking style. Tal's spectacular games, along with his charming personality and witty sense of humour, endeared him to the chess public like no other player.

Award-winning author Tibor Károlyi has written the definitive guide to Tal's sparkling career. Cutting-edge chess analysis is complemented by the engaging story of Tal's career and other life events. The book also contains numerous anecdotes from famous players who share their memories of Tal.

In this, the first of three volumes, Károlyi explores Tal's early life and career up to the end of 1959, including his victory in the formidable Candidates tournament where he earned the right to challenge Botvinnik for the world title.

International Master Tibor Károlyi was Hungarian Champion in 1984 and is renowned as both an author and a trainer. He won the Guardian Book of the Year prize in 2007.


"Another nice touch is that Karolyi has asked many of Tal's opponents about the games they played with Tal and their impressions of Tal, which adds an extra human dimension to the book.

But of course, the most important thing about all these books are the games and the analysis and for both I have only the fullest admiration. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Karolyi's annotations is that he doesn't only focus on brilliant Tal attacks, but also spends a lot of time on many of the weird and wonderful endgames that arose as a result of his sacrifices.

It feels a little bit like overdoing things to give 5 stars to a set of three books, but if any Best Games collection has ever deservd it, then this one has! Don't waste any time: get down to the bookshop and enjoy!"

GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

"The author selected great games, scrutinized them with computers and delivered new comments. He also sought input from Tal's opponents, friends and coaches, creating a vivid picture of Tal as a person. Among many books written about Tal, Karolyi's work stands out."

GM Lubomir Kavalek, Huffington Post

Produktet er en del av serien Mikhail Tal's Best Games

Tidligere verdensmester Mikhail Tal var kanskje den mest publikumsvennlige sjakkspilleren som har levd. Den ungarske IM'en Tibor Karolyi har forsket på Tals liv og karriere og presenterer resultatene i tre gjennomarbeidede bøker. De inneholder grundige og fine kommentarer til et stort antall av Tals severdige partier, sammen med en ganske detaljert gjennomgang av livet til den sympatiske "trollmannen fra Riga".
