In memory of Mikhail Tal

The ‘Magician from Riga’, Mikhail Tal, enchanted the chess world in the 1950s and 1960s with his amazing combinations. He was ill all his life, but nevertheless belonged to the absolute top of the chess world for decades, even after losing the World Championship title. Today is the 85th anniversary of his birth. | Photo: Dutch National Archive
