- med undertitlen "The World Champion"

Andet bind i triologien om Tal, nok den mest underholdende og populære VM´er igennem tiderne. Kendt for spektakulære ofre, som selv de stærkeste GM´er først langt senere så dybden i.

Denne bog dækker de succesrige midterår af Tals liv, fra 1960-1971.
Netop i 1960 væltede han Botvinnik af VM-tronen som kun 23-årig. 
Selvom Tal mistede tronen igen i revanche matchen imod Botvinnik forblev han i det følgende årti en af verdens stærkeste spillere.

  

Dette er både en træningsbog med analyser, men også en veldokumenteret historisk bog med bidrag af familiemedlemmer og tidens stærke modstandere.

Om forfatteren: 
Tibor Karolyi er IM fra Ungarn, hvor han blev mester i 1984. Men det er som forfatter og træner han er mest kendt. Vandt i 2007 "Guardian Book of the Year prize in 2007".

(en lille anekdote: under Xtracon Open passede jeg skaksalgets bod. Vi er nok i 2015. Pludselig kommer en pæn herre hen og præsenterer sig som Tibor Karolyi. Vi fik en længere snak. Det viste sig at han var træner for flere nordsjællandske spillere)

Anmeldelser:

"Another nice touch is that Karolyi has asked many of Tal's opponents about the games they played with Tal and their impressions of Tal, which adds an extra human dimension to the book.

But of course, the most important thing about all these books are the games and the analysis and for both I have only the fullest admiration. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Karolyi's annotations is that he doesn't only focus on brilliant Tal attacks, but also spends a lot of time on many of the weird and wonderful endgames that arose as a result of his sacrifices.

It feels a little bit like overdoing things to give 5 stars to a set of three books, but if any Best Games collection has ever deservd it, then this one has! Don't waste any time: get down to the bookshop and enjoy!"

GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

"Five recent offerings from Quality Chess confirm that it is the unquestioned leader when it comes to consistently publishing chess books of the highest quality...

The notes to the games in the present volume, which traces Tal’s journey from winning the World Championship to 1971 when he was still among the world’s elite, are first rate. Readable, yet with plenty of concrete variations when needed, Karolyi’s annotations are insightful... No chess player can fail to love Mikhail Tal’s Best Game 2: 1960-1971"

IM John Donaldson, Chess Today

"Tibor Karolyi and his three-volume series leaves no questions unanswered. I can warmly recommend this book to lovers of beautiful, sacrificial games."

IM Dirk Schuh, Rochade Europa

"While Karolyi includes many of Tal’s most famous sacrificial efforts, he also analyses more ‘workman-like’ games, including no small number of his endgames... The image of Tal we get through these books is of a much more well-rounded player than commonly thought.

Karolyi also spends a lot of time, and obviously spent a lot of effort, contextualizing each game. In some cases he sheds light on the identity of Tal’s opponent, while in others he sketches the situation Tal found himself in while playing the game. Many personal anecdotes are relayed, and the book is much richer for it."

John Hartmann (full review)

"In the period covered by the book, Tal played many great sacrificial games... As in part one of the trilogy, Karolyi provides wonderful anecdotes alongside in-depth analysis of the games."

Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad
