One of the nice things about being the compiler of web pages is that sometimes you get to decide what goes in them. In this case I have chosen to produce a profile of my favourite player of all time - the 8th World Champion Mikhail Tal - simply because I feel there should be some sort of place for chess net surfers to read about this amazing character. His talent, his love of the game, and his friendliness towards all other chess players is sorely missed.
If there's a heaven then God is probably smiling and wondering where on
earth that sacrifice came from right now.
Rest in peace Misha.
