intermediate
ChessNetwork Master games Tal, mikhail Smyslov, vladimir Caro-kann 1959 World candidates tournament

Mikhail Tal employs the Closed Breyer variation against Vasily Smyslov's Caro-Kann Defense. Do not however be detracted by the word 'closed', as the position by move 7 is anything but. A tactical and dynamic position quickly arises where an emphasis on time/development, move order details, and precise calculation are paramount. The 1959 Candidates Tournament was held in three cities of Yugoslavia. The first 14 rounds were played in Bled, rounds 15-21 in Zagreb, and rounds 22-28 in Belgrade. This was game 30 from round 8 between Tal and Smyslov.
