Tahl Video Clip

This clip is of Mikahil Tahl playing in the Beograd, 1959 Candidate’s Tournament.


  1. Why was Benko using sunglasses ? Is it to avoid Tahl's famous ( and somewhat strange ) glare ?

    I'm an fan of Mikhail Tahl, and hoping to understand someday his sacs and tactical spots.

    The scene at 0:05 reminds me of Tahl's famous photo of his game with Padevsky, from Kasparov's My Great Predecessors.

    Unfortunately, there are only a few videos of Tahl's. It's nice to see this chess genius on the job !

    Many thanks !

  2. Sorry for my typos LOL
