GRANDMASTER OF SPEED, GENIUS, AND RAW, CRUSHING WWF-STYLE TALENT!
Leonid Stein, Soviet chess grandmaster and champion, believed in ”correct” chess. However, when faced with drifting into a draw against a weaker player or a lost game, he believed in RISK! His unrestrained imagination and creativity elevated his play beyond mere mortals. It was another genius, Bobby Fischer, who boldly challenged Stein to a match to be held after the Havana chess olympiad.
* A most likely future world champion, and definitely a candidate, he unleashed his unbridled talent over the mightiest of chess players, but tragically, died in his thirties.
* Stein’s amazing ingenuity in attack and sacrifice is revealed in these dramatically annotated games.
* Besides the extensive biographical section, his family photo album is opened for all to see his warmth and strength, and the mental prowess of the 3-times USSR champion.
Written by two who knew him well, the authors have analyzed the career of a super grandmaster for whom chess life moved much too slowlyl Grandmaster Gufeld now lives in Los Angeles. Master Lazarev resides in Kiev, the Ukraine.
