This can be a great ebook that each chessplayer should still personal. whilst i used to be undefined, I learn a remark by means of a chess bookseller who pointed out a grasp who had performed via each video game during this booklet in his adolescence, and had acknowledged what an excellent ebook it used to be. at the beginning I snorted derisively, yet i made a decision to examine the video games myself. Over a interval of numerous years, I performed via, analyzed, and annotated the 1st 800 or so video games within the ebook. I additionally turned a grasp, and this ebook is an important a part of the explanation why.

Chernev enjoyed chess, and stated that he had most likely performed over extra chess video games than somebody in heritage. (This booklet was once released in 1954, lengthy earlier than the times of chess databases, or maybe Chess Informant; Chernev needed to learn via hundreds of thousands of chess books and magazines, a few really vague, to collect those games.) The video games Chernev has chosen are very unique and a few are rather attractive. The video games are very frivolously annotated by way of Chernev, so for the main half it really is as much as the reader to determine the place the loser (and frequently either avid gamers) went flawed. cautious research of the video games within the ebook will acquaint you with virtually each tactical concept there's, and should assist you stay away from errors your self, and make the most these of your opponent. I see tactical principles in a short time, and that i imagine this e-book is a part of the explanation why.

Several reviewers have said that the publication is an expensive collector's merchandise nowadays. it's certainly attainable to spend so much of cash for it, yet numerous booksellers listed here are promoting it for $13-14. New chess books this day expense approximately two times that, and are typically much smaller than this tome, so this booklet is sort of a cut price. i purchased the paperback over 30 years in the past while it was once nonetheless in print. a number of pages got here free through the years. i have seeing that acquired one other paperback and a hardcover replica of the booklet, copied my unique annotations into the paperback, and given away my unique dog-eared paperback to a chum. i could not endure to throw out any reproduction of a booklet for which i've got such affection!
