These games were a selection from a small notebook which had come into Russell's possession and in which Tal had recorded some three dozen games from the very beginning of his chess career. Many of these games had never been published before. I have taken the liberty of adding plausible first names for his opponents where this information was not provided in Russell's article.} 1. e4 {Myers Alburt} Nf6 2. Nc3 e5 3. Nf3 Nc6 4. Bb5 Bb4 5.

Two pawns is not enough compensation for the sacrificed piece, but if you add permanent problems with the king, the dubious rook on h7, then the practical difficulties of playing this position with black will become obvious. Such semi-correct sacrifices were a significant element of Tal's phenomenal successes in the late Fifties. His magical energy - and the pressure of the ticking clock - caused his opponents to regularly lose their heads and crack. In Botvinnik's case Tal was up against an iron character, supported by precise psychological calculation. Botvinnik stood firm in face of this terrible chess twister. Das ist die Stellung, die Tal angestrebt hat. Zwei Bauern sind zwar nicht gen黦end Kompensation f黵 die geopferte Figur, aber wenn man die permanenten Probleme mit dem K鰊ig sowie den verd鋍htigen Turm auf h7 dazuz鋒lt, dann werden die praktischen Schwierigkeiten von Wei?etwas deutlicher. Solche halbkorrekte Opfer waren ein Merkmal von Tals ph鋘omenaler Erfolgsserie in den sp鋞en f黱fziger Jahren. Seine mystische Energie, gekoppelt mit dem Druck der tickenden Uhr, hat reihenweise zum Zusammenbruch des Gegners gef黨rt.

With the benefit of hindsight we know, of course, that this time expenditure was quite fruitless. The move does have a clear strategic logic: with the blocked center position, Black's dark-square Bishop is locked in from his center diagonal and thus has become "bad". What is more logial than exchanging it for White's "good" Bishop? In a static position this would be quite true, but here the idea has dual disadvantages: valuable development time is lost and the King position is seriously weakened. It seems harsh to call this the losing moment, yet Tal plays outstandingly and Black does not miss any significant improvements.} ( 12... h5 13. f3 f5 14. Bf2 Qe7 15. a4 Bh6 16.

White's bishops are menacingly poised against Black's king, and already there threatens the well known double sacrifice of bishops on h7 and g7. Black must make further positional concessions to avoid this. /// Polugaevsky: This knight sacrifice at d5, when the black king has already moved away from the danger zone, may at first seem openly cavalier, but it caused a great stir in the chess world. Over a period of several years, analysts from various countries carried out analyses which were published in the pages of chess magazines. Was the sacrifice correct? Did Black have a defense? Replies came at intervals of a month, a year, two years... It was clear that to refute Tal's idea at the board would have been an exceptionally difficult task. And the Riga grandmaster is absolutely right when he says that "years of analysis and minutes of play are not at all the same thing." Tal was guided both by positional considerations and by his intuition. In concrete terms, White aims to exploit the remoteness of the black pieces from the kingside, whereas his "fighters" are already prepared to strike a decisive blow against the castled position.

[The 37th USSR Championship was also an FIDE Zonal Tournment.] Polugaevsky later told journalists that the idea of the sacrifice had occurred to him some time before, during his joint analysis with Spassky while the latter was preparing for his World Championship match with Petrosian. This shows once again how important detailed home analysis is in modern tournament play. It's hard to imagine anyone making this sacrifice over the board when facing this position for the first time--at least not unless he was prepared to spend a lot of valuable time considering it.} exd5 (16...

There are no direct threats: White threatens merely to strengthen his position gradually and eventually to launch a dangerous attack on the king. As experience shows, sacrifices like this are not easy for the defender to meet.

That was the first reaction by his grandmaster colleagues and by the public. And with good reason: castling on the queenside after playing a2-a4 really looks suicidal. Objectively, the move cannot be approved. But there's another side to the coin, which makes Tal's decision understandable. This game was played at the end of the tournament, when Tal desperately needed points. The text move creates a situation in which quiet play is out of the question and all-out attack on both sides is required. Since this kind of situation is ideal for Tal and most uncomfortable for Petrosian, Tal may have been hoping he could outplay his opponent. But in order to get the kind of position he wants, Tal is giving his rival considerable odds, since in the following race it is Black who comes in first.} (13. Nh3 cxd4 14. Bxd4 Nbd7 15. O-O Qc7 16.

Moreover, he has freed the f-pawn; its advance, in conjunction with that of the e-pawn could give Black a preponderance of pawns in the center, [one of Black's main positional motifs in this variation]. The price that Black has had to pay for all this is the removal of his pieces from the kingside. His queen no longer controls f6, g5, or h4, and more significantly, his knight has moved away from f6 [where it serves reliably as a defender for the king's house].} 15.
