By A. J. Goldsby I on April 1, 2002

I have this e-book. i'm a Life-Master on the online 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

all in right here, a hundred twenty five of the easiest annotated video games you are going to ever see. whereas Smyslov lacks
the skill to the touch the bottom ranking periods like Chernev, a person who stories these
