In english the name is written Mikhail Tal


Mikhail Tal


Mikhail Nekhemievich Tal (Latvian: Mihails Tāls, Russian: Михаил Нехемьевич Таль) (November 9, 1936 - June 28, 1992), born in Riga, Latvia, was a Jewish Latvian chess player and the eighth World Chess Champion.

In 1960, at the age of 24, Tal defeated the relatively staid and strategic Mikhail Botvinnik in a World Championship match, making him the youngest ever world champion (a record later broken by Garry Kasparov, who earned the title at 22). Botvinnik won the return match against Tal in 1961 after a lengthy study of Tal's style. Tal's chronic kidney problems may also have contributed to his defeat.

His highest ELO rating was 2700, his highest Historical Chessmetrics Rating was 2799, in September 1960.
