"Later, ... I began to succeed in decisive games. Perhaps because I realised a very simple truth:not only was I worried, but also my opponent."
GM Mikhail Tal
Unlike the smooth, almost effortless style of a Capablanca, Tal purposely played moves that created the maximum complications for both sides. He once said, "One doesn't have to play well. One only needs to play better than his opponent". Dr. Lasker would have loved that quote, for he too believed the game of chess as a struggle between two minds, as opposed to each player blindly making "correct" moves.
