    HAVE you ever wanted to play chess with the masters? Reinfeld shows you how. Now you can play against some of the world's greatest masters, in the privacy of your study with no annoying “kibitzers” around, and with no time limit to harry you! An easily understood grading system shows you just where you stand in matching your skills against the masters.

    Chess by Yourself is similar to Solitaire Chess. The difference is that in Solitaire Chess the reader imagines himself to be playing the white pieces. The reader covers up the moves with a sheet of paper and then guesses White's next move and writes it down. Then, the reader moves down the sheet of paper revealing the next move that was actually played. The reader is then awarded points depending on whether the move he guessed was right or wrong, strong or weak. White always wins

    In Chess by Yourself the reader is to go one step further, because he plays both sides of the board. He gets points for guessing both White's next move and then Black's next move. Either side may win. At the end of the game, the reader totals his score. Depending on how many points he got he is awarded a ranking of Master, Excellent, Good or Fair. The reader can also get extra credit by guessing follow-up moves in variations that were not actually played. The author, Fred Reinfeld, has selected ten games for this test. All are exciting sacrificial games. All ten games are deeply annotated with an explanation given for every move and points awarded for alternative moves that were not played.
