Smyslov's 125 Selected Games

Amazon buyer review:

Smyslov outdoes himself.
By A. J. Goldsby I on April 1, 2002

I have this e-book. i'm a Life-Master on the video game. I train chess for a living.
Smyslov is without doubt one of the maximum gamers who ever lived. His craft as an annotator sets
himself in a category probably all via himself. (How many different writers have held the World
Championship? )
Simply positioned this can be the best books in my library. i've got over 2000 chess books,
(not counting pamphlets) and this can be simply within the best a hundred, perhaps even the pinnacle 10.
Want to enhance your online game? are looking to learn strategies? Positional chess? Endings? It is
all in right here, one hundred twenty five of the simplest annotated video games you are going to ever see. whereas Smyslov lacks
the skill to the touch the bottom ranking sessions like Chernev, someone who reports these
games rigorously couldn't support yet increase. Smyslov right here most likely spent a lot more
time penning this booklet than you'll ever spend examining it . .. and it shows.
