Tal's Tournament and Matches 1974-1992
Compiled by jessicafischerqueen
--*--

This metacollection is the second half of Game Collection: Tal's Tournament and Matches 1949-1973, a project meant to feature every known tournament and match Mikhail Tal played in his career.

There are many links to <Tournament Pages> and supplementary games collections here, and I will provide at least one game from each event, except where no game appears to be available.

If you find any errors or you know of an event I missed, please leave a note for me in my forum:
