    Soviet Chess

    Product Code: B0104IS


    Book Description

    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.

    In this book, R. G. Wade, the Chief National Coach of British Chess Federation, with more than one hundred international chess events behind him, examines Soviet Chess. In this unique work, more than 120 games in Descriptive Notation of the leading grandmasters in the USSR are analyzed and commented on, including some of the greatest games ever played by giants such as Botvinnik, Smyslov, Bronstein, Petrosian, Tal and countless others.

    With the tremendous wealth of biographical material and information, this makes a unique and incomparable reference work, a source of inspiration to all chess players.
