Please try again later. I thought I was buying a game collection. This is a novel format and one which actually encourages perseverance.
The solution is not immediately beneath boeis diagram where one can sneak a peek. Instead it is placed in the last third of the book within the context of the game score.
If the puzzle proves uncrackable, one can consult the “tip” in the second third instead of racing staightway to the solution.
Each game gets one or two diagrams for the critical position s. The annotations are succint. The print quality of the diagrams and scores intiiative excellent.
A chess set is optional. Puzzles are also partitioned into 8 groups of approximately 20 puzzles each. I try to crack an entire group before I consult the back for the correct solutions. I can understand the authors wanting to keep the book short and sweet puzzles in pagesbut I wish the authors had annotated all games throughout. I wanted to see how master Spassky both wrested and converted the intiative in each game. This book has got of Boris Spassky’s games in the puzzle format that Raetsky is known for.
The first half of the book consists of diagram positions where you are supposed to find the winning combination or move. The second half contains the complete move listing for the games along with slight annotation. This book is good for any one who is a Spassky fan and would like to see his combinations. Someone who would want to practice their tactical skills in the form of puzzles.
Someone who would like to go through his games. There are like actual games with slightly more annotations in the book. This book is a good supplement to Spassky games and Spassky best games by Cafferty. I like the new approach of puzzles followed by games.
I have always loved the attitude and genius of Boris Spassky. The biographical notes are shortish and the puzzles are a very well chosen selection of spazsky vignettes from a highly talented player. I liked these games so much that I plan on going through them again to help me recognise attacking ideas for my own games.
