The Bright Side of Chess

Product Code: B0237IS

Description

The Bright Side of Chess is a collection of curious stories, fantastic games, unusual positions, surprising combinations, all under one cover. Irving Chernev was not the strongest player, but he was the most entertaining writer in the history of chess.

Inspired by the slogan "nothing but fun," this is a gay, light-hearted book. There is many a chuckle in the epigrams by, and anecdotes about, great masters. The "bright games" are quick and clever-sharp duels of nimble minds, with annotations that highlight the fine points. 

 

The magical problems, endings and "flights of fancy" are all special favorites with which Chernev-the kind he treasures in his famous little black book. Most attractive of all: Chernev's candidates for the 15 most beautiful games of all time.
