How Correct Were Mikhail Tal's Sacrifices? - Part 2

ChessAnalysisTacticsChess Personalities
Many pundits claim that Mikhail Tal's sacrifices were objectively quite unsound, but how true is this claim, really?

All of my content and writings will be free forever. Donate or become a patron to help support this content.

Writing these articles took about 4 months of reasonably constant daily work (March 2024 till June 2024). I looked through almost 3000 games by Mikhail Tal. A 200-part series on Mikhail Tal's sacrfices takes some work, yes!

Important Information

Note that this article will be updated from time to time as I haven't finished writing all of the articles yet (as of early June 2024; I hope to finish by August).

This article (part 2) as well as the first, third, and fourth articles of this series (parts 1, 3, and 4) is a "master" article which includes all the important information you need to read the remaining, analysis-driven parts of this project. Thus, keep referring to parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 as you read the remaining parts.
