Central Variation (C64) [Event "Curacao Candidates"] [Site "Willemstad CURACAO"] [Date "1962.06.05"] [Round "18"] [White "Mikhail Tal"] [Black "Robert James Fischer"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [ECO "C64"] [PlyCount "65"] [EventDate "1962.05.02"] {Mikhail Tal (Latvian: Mihails Tāls; Russian: МиÑ...аил НеÑ...емьевич Таль, Michail Nechem'evič Tal, pronounced [mʲixʌˈiÉ« nʲɪˈxÉ›mʲɪvʲitÍ¡É• ˈtal]; sometimes transliterated Mihails Tals or Mihail Tal; November 9, 1936 â€" June 28, 1992)[1] was a Soviet-Latvian chess Grandmaster and the eighth World Chess Champion (from 1960 to 1961). Widely regarded as a creative genius and the best attacking player of all time, he played in a daring, combinatorial style.[2][3] His play was known above all for improvisation and unpredictability. Every game, he once said, was as inimitable and invaluable as a poem.[4] 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 (Burgess, Nunn & Emms 2004) and Modern Chess Brilliancies (Evans 1970) include more games by Tal than any other player. Tal was also a highly regarded chess writer. He also holds the records for both the first and second longest unbeaten streaks in competitive chess history.[5] The Mikhail Tal Memorial is held in Moscow annually since 2006 to honour Tal's memory.} 1. e4 e5 2.
