By Leonid ... Judasin

I bought this 3-vol. set of Bobby Fischer's amassed video games again within the 1990's, and will attest that it has all his well-known video games and suits, together with his 1972 international Championship fit with Spassky, and the 1992 Fischer-Spassky rematch. Many, if no longer such a lot, of the video games are good abd deeply annotated.

Vol. 1 covers the years 1955-1960; Vol. 2 is going from 1961-1967, and Vol three covers 1968-1992. My merely criticism approximately this set, is that usually whilst the particular strikes of video games are surrounded via dense annotations, it may be a section tough to tell apart the strikes of the video games from the strikes of the research, yet it truly is nonetheless more uncomplicated to head via that the footnotes in ECO occasionally! :)

Anyway, when you can locate this assortment or any a part of it, i like to recommend it enthusiastically.
