Bukhuti Gurgenidze vs Mikhail Tal 1957

USSR Championship 1957, Moscow

In our first live chess video analysis we are going to look at a crown jewel of a chess game played by the Grandmaster and Magician from Riga, Mikhail Tal in the USSR championship of 1957. He is the black pieces against Bukhuti Gurgenidze. Tal is well recognized as perhaps the most aggressive chess player of all time. His brilliance and creativity has captured the attention and hearts of chess players and continues to do so. In this game he bulldozes his way through his opponent’s kingside en route to a crushing victory with the modern Benoni opening. Tal famously said “you must take your opponent to a deep dark forest where 2 + 2 = 5 and the path out is only wide enough for one.” I can imagine that is exactly how his opponent felt in this game.
