    Book Description

    This is a reprint of two Russian Language chess books combined into one. The author, Igor Bondarevsky, was one of the strongest players in the world. He served as the coach and trainer for Boris Spassky during Spassky's matches with Tigran Petrosian when Spassky won the World Chess Championship.

     

    About the Author(s)

    Igor Zakharovich Bondarevsky was born on 12 May 1913 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Bondarevsky was ranked among the 15 strongest players in the world and was among the first 27 players to be awarded the grandmaster title by FIDE in 1950. His career peak was reached in 1940 by sharing first place with Andor Lilienthal at the 12th USSR championship in Moscow, ahead Paul Keres, Isaac Boleslavsky and Mikhail Botvinnik. Bondarevsky missed his big chance to play for the World Chess Championship in 1950. He qualified to play in the World Championship Candidates Tournament at Budapest 1950 but he was unable to play because of illness. He died on 14 June 1979 in Pyatigorsk, Russia.

What is a chess player supposed to do: memorize countless variations?

    • 365 Selected Endgames
      One for Each Day of the Year
      This book is written in both German and English. Some knowledge of both Classic notation and Algebraic (mainly the latter) is needed to follow all the notes. The book is mainly a series of fairly difficult endgame studies. I went through the book and solved each problem in the manner that the authors suggested in their preface. It helped me win many Chess tournament games that would have otherwise been draws and also draw many games that should have been lost.
