    Book Description

    How would you like to play chess with such all time greats as Capablanca, Nimzovich, Marshall, Steinitz, Alekhine, Lasker - even Bobby Fisher? This book gives you the opportunity to do so and even spares you the embarrassment of humiliating defeat!

    This book enables the average chess player to match wits against the greatest masters of all time. The result is a book that is as instructive as it is entertaining.

    This book is the original and much imitated Solitaire Chess by I.A. Horowitz. Sixty two master games are presented. The reader is asked to guess the next move by the player of the white pieces. If you guess correctly, you are awarded points. At the end of the game, your score is graded according to how many points he has earned.

    This book presents a collection of 62 of the greatest attacking games ever played. Games by Fischer, Capablanca, Alekhine, Lasker, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Steinitz, Reti, Marshall, Pillsbury and almost all the other great masters are included here. The author, an International Master, provides notes to every game.

    This edition of the book has been expanded. All of the games have been translated into algebraic notation, although the notes are in descriptive.
