About Tournament

From Mig Greengard's blog: Mikhail Tal was born on November 9 in 1936. He was world champion for a mere year (60-61) but had a tremendous impact on top level chess with his speculative, sacrificial play. Tal was beloved for his often sardonic humor, his writing, and his carefree attitudes about life and his own fragile health. Tal was a lifelong smoker and drinker, but it's hard to imagine the Magician of Riga appearing without the puff of smoke. Hospitalized various times, mostly for kidney ailments that started when he was quite young, Tal nevertheless enjoyed a fairly long career and had several excellent results late into it. In the 70's he had unbeaten streaks of 93 and 86 games, records that still stand. He died in 1992 at the age of 55. Just four years earlier he had won the world blitz championship ahead of Kasparov et al.
