Lately, I'm browsing youtube for any chess related videos of interest and worth sharing with everyone when suddenly, I came upon with this classic video of a blindfold simul done by former world champion Mikhail Tal against ten opponents. The audio is in Russian, I presume but the ever so cocky that was Tal is so evident in this one. Puffing cigarettes, leaning sideways on his chair, and the way he speaks during the interview, all speaks for itself the super ego of this man possessed. Nevertheless, after the games, he warmly acknowledged everyone's applause and shook the hands of his opponents with a genuine smile and a nod. We weren't so sure though on what's the result of the simul but it looks like it's a sweep.
