Tal for some reason, Tal is somewhat more interesting than me, at least...

fischer mostly because im more familiar with his games than with those of Tal. I wouldnt know unless i spent some more time with Tal's games.

I just enjoy some of the bizarre combinations that came out in Bobby's games, that seem to defy logic until the very end...

I enjoy Tal's combinations more ,enjoy Fischer's strategy and smooth flow better .Am a bigger fan of Tal 's career even though I know Fischer was the stronger player of the two.Am more proud of Fischer because he was the greatest American world champion! Really I am such a big fan of them both that it hurt to answer this question!!-BBG

Too different Tal had a legendary presense about him that seemed to make great players play poorly. He was very deep, tactically, right or wrong. He had a knack for making people see what he wanted them to see (often refutable, and the humorous part is his opponents knew it but found themselves in trouble anyway).

Fischer's style was almost always deep and clean. Even his combinations were clean. It is possible he may have survived his match with Karpov (though not likely) in '75, he was a perfectionist when it came to preparation. But his clean style is exactly what the next-generation players like Kasparov are able to break. Fischer, in his prime, would have been no match for Kasparov, even in his youth.

The book ... 'The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal' turned me into a great Tal fan. I like getting 'into the minds' of those great players, and this book is in autobiographical form AND he deeply annotates a bunch of his own games. Its fun to see what these guys were thinking and/or 'going through' personally at those times.

Fischer I am more a fan of logic and clarity than crazy sacrificial attacks :-)

Tal Fischer Many of Tal's combinations could be refutated, true... in the posterior analysis, with hours of time. Not in the board.

Tal is considered the greatest tactician.
Fischer is the most well rounded.

You can learn from both of them!

Fischer vs Tal... Isn't that like comparing O'Conner to Mac Enroe in Tennis?... Both were excellent players... One just complained more than the other... That's how I would compair these two Grandmasters of chess... I would have to agree with Bruce, you can learn a lot from both of them... When ever they faced off with each other, it was always a great match...

Fischer or Tal I agree with you Bro. Both Tal and Fischer were great players. But when all comes to all, I think Fischer was best. First he was a more all round player, and seconly Tal often, true to his nature, was too "creative", which means that he made combination that sometimes brought him close to the edge. But it's always a pleasure to play through both players games.
