Tal - Botvinnik 1960
Nella primavera del 1960 si affrontarono per la prima volta per il titolo mondiale il massimo rappresentante della scuola “scientifica” degli scacchi - nonché tra i creatori di quella “sovietica” -, il Campione in carica Mikhail Botvinnik, e il giovane sfidante Mikhail Tal, il “mago di Riga”.
Mikhail Tal’s splendid account of his world championship match victory is one of the masterpieces of the golden age of annotation - before insights and feelings and flashes of genius were reduced to mere moves and Informant symbols...
In 1960 Mikhail Botvinnik (left) was the pillar of ``scientific`` chess and the iron- willed champion of the world. The young attacking genius Mikhail Tal (above), the ``Wizard of Riga,`` put the magic back into the game by defeating Botvinnik with spectacular tactics in one of the most dramatic and celebrated world championship matches of all time.
This is Tal’s own classic work on the con- test. In it he sets the stage and explains every one of the 21 games, telling both the on- and off-the-board story of this titanic clash of styles and thought.
