Tal Won A Piece In The Opening But Then Started Series Of Sacrifices

In this video which I uploaded on my chess channel, I analyzed a game played by the eighth world chess champion Mikhail Tal against a Hungarian chess grandmaster Gedeon Barcza. Though in the opening with an impressive tactical shot Mikhail Tal managed to win a piece but things started to get complicated very soon and at some point Tal found himself an exchange and a pawn down. Luckily everything was under control and that was the result of Tal’s deep calculations and already and that point the game was winning for black!
