Nezhmetdinov vs Tal

Sicilian Opening, Kan. Knight Variation

Nezhmetdinov vs Tal are you in for a treat. Even with an early queen’s trade Nezhmetdinov shows Tal around and demolishes Tals’s Sicilian defense.

Nezhmetdinov vs Tal

Sicilian Opening, Kan. Knight Variation

What happens when the two most aggressive chess players face off? Watch this game to find out! Despite an early queen trade, the true nature of the players could not be contained. The lesser known Rashid Nezhmetdinov gives Tal a taste of his own medicine with an endgame sacrifice to put Tal on the defensive. One mistake was all it took for Tal‘s position to go completely downhill. With a lifetime record of 3 wins and 1 loss against Mikhail Tal, it’s a wonder why Nezhmetdinov is not mentioned more in the history of chess. He was a brilliant and creative player. Enjoy this slugfest!
