Paul Keres' Best Games: Volume 1 Paperback edition by Egon Varnusz
Test your chess skills with the world champion! In this stimulating book Garry Kasparov selects the best chess combinations from recent grandmaster play and presents them in a test-yourself format that all players will enjoy. Each chapter demonstrates the tactical properties of a particular piece, with a series of puzzles of varying difficulty.
Alekhine, Botvinnik, Keres, Bronstein, Tal, Petrosian, Korchnoi, Geller, Stein, Spassky, Karpov and Kasparov were all winners at least once, and the tournaments have gone down in legend for the quality, and creative inspiration for the games. This book is a permanent record of those extraordinary times.
This instructive book for competitive players, based on Edmar Mednis' classic Practical Endgame Lessons, provides the reader with a wealth of useful instruction in endgame play, reinforced by a a series of tests presented as simulations of tournament play.
