My review of “100 selected games” by Mikhail Botvinnik
Although personally marred by his Soviet ideology and patriotism, Botvinnik is a worthy teacher, someone to play along side so as to learn to see, if only a small part, of what he saw when looking at the chess-board. Otherwise a very good job.
Detalhes do produto Formato: A careful study of these games should prove rewarding to anyone interested in modern chess.
The games are seperated by the year in which they were played. Anyway, I highly recommend this book for intermediate players like myself.
Paul Britt rated it it was amazing Sep 20, The games are written in descriptive notation as this is a rather old book that hasn’t yet been revised and reprinted. They cover the period from his first big tournament — the USSR Championship ofin which the year-old Botvinnik became a master — to the International Tournament at Groningen in — in which he demonstrated his qualifications for winning the world championship.

Proun rated it really liked it Aug 08, If you’re over say Botvinnik, an expert analyst as well as a champion, had annotated these games himself, giving a complete exposition of his strategy and techniques against such leading chess players as Alekhine, Capablanca, Euwe, Keres, Reshevsky, Smyslov, Tartakower, Vidmar, and many others.
This volume also includes a long article on the development of chess in Russia, in which Botvinnik discusses Tchigorin, Alekhine, and their influence on the Soviet school of chess; the author’s six studies of endgame positions; and Botvinnik’s record in tournament and match play through The book ends with a series of six studies, as well as his thesis on what a “combination” actually is.
