Tal-Botvinnik 1960 by Mihails Tāls( Book )

7 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. This is simply the best book written about a world championship match by a contestant. That shouldn't be a surprise because Tal was the finest writer to become world champion. International Grandmaster and popular chess columnist Andy Soltis. In 1960 Mikhail Botvinnik was the pillar of scientific chess and the iron-willed champion of the world. The young attacking genius Mikhail Tal, 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 contest. 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. This seventh edition is supplemented by German grandmaster Karsten Muller's new Foreword and a moving essay by former USCF Executive Director Al Lawrence
The life and games of Mikhail Tal by Mihails Tāls( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mikhail Tal, the 'magician from Riga,' was the greatest attacking World Champion of them all, and this enchanting autobiography chronicles his extraordinary career with charm and humor. Dazzling games are interspersed throughout with anecdotes and witty self-interviews, and in typically objective fashion he related both the downs and ups of his encounters. An inveterate smoker and drinker, Tal's life on the circuit was punctuated by bouts in the hospital with kidney problems, but nothing could dull his love for chess and his sheer genius on the chessboard. His illustrious tournament record, up to his death in 1992, is included here in full, along with 100 complete games and nearly as many positions. Tal's annotations in this book are a world apart from ordinary games collections. No reader could fail to be swept along by his passion and vitality as he sets the scene for an encounter and then recounts every psychological twist and turn." --Publisher description

Draw! : the art of the half-point in chess by Leonid Solomonovich Verkhovskiĭ( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Luck of the Draw!? We have all seen games and perhaps even played them in which a difficult or lost game is salvaged by a brilliant drawing combination. In the early 1970s, Soviet International Master Leonid Verkhovsky collected some of the most fantastic draws ever played. You will be captivated by combinations and threats, as inexhaustible imagination in defense and attack counterbalance each other. The chess prowess of one player is basically in equilibrium with the mastery of his opponent. Both are playing for a win, both send their chess armies into close combat, and peace sets in on the chessboard when it practically becomes empty after a long and fierce battle. You will also delight at the spectacular saving draws, when, although in a difficult position, a player finds all possible (and impossible!) resources to make a draw. Example are drawn from the praxis of world champions and outstanding grandmasters, as well as from the games of lesser-known players. Of special interest is the research made by the author regarding stalemate, that special exception in the rules. The book is crowned with an interesting chapter in which the author addresses the drawn games of the world s top players. I am sure that all those who love and cherish our ancient game will appreciate this wonderful book. Mikhail Tal
