Description

Rashid Nezhmetdinov (1912-1974) played attack chess without fear. With his dazzling style, the Soviet master was already a legend during his lifetime, but international fame largely eluded him. Only once did he get permission to show off his exceptional talent in a tournament abroad.

Nezhmetdinov was a five-time Russian Federation chess champion. In the 1961 Soviet Championship, he won the "Best Match" award for a spectacular victory against... Mikhail Tal, who praised his opponent for his "incredible creativity". Other stars that Nezh defeated with great style included Spassky, Polugaevsky, Bronstein, and Geller.

His games, full of tactical pyrotechnics, are his legacy have reached a growing audience. Nezhmetdinov's shocking strategy queen sacrifice in 1962 against Chernikov, as shown on a popular English YouTuber's channel, has become the most watched chess video of all time with millions of views.
