Description

A Compendium of 1768 Chess Games, with Diagrams, Crosstables, Some Annotations,and Indexes.

On November 26, 1911, Samuel Herman Reshevsky was born in Ozorkov, Poland. At age six he became a chess professional and for seventy years he was a force on the international chess scene. This is by a very large margin the most comprehensive collection of Reshevsky’s games ever offered to the public.

Arranged in chronological order, with mini-essays wrapping up each decade, the 1,768 games (match, tournament, exhibition, simultaneous, casual, speed, postal, blindfold and other) are given in full, many with diagrams. Three indexes: openings by traditional names, openings by ECO codes, and opponents.

Stephen W. Gordon is a former winner of the U.S. Amateur Chess Championship. He lives in West Valley City, Utah. 

Inside Chess:
"This oversize monster is by far the most complete work ever printed on Sammy Reshevsky. One of the giants of American chess, [he] was a world championship level competitor for four decades. Detailed player and opening indexes (..) an excellent addition to any chess library."

British Chess Magazine:
"Gordon’s magnum opus covers eight decades of masterly play (..)A mammoth 1,768 of Reshevsky’s games together with informative introductions to each decade. Assiduously researched and collated- a real treasure trove!"

The Compulsive Reader:
"a commendable record and tribute (..) majestic (..) clear, lucid and interesting."

ChessCafe.com:
“quite an accomplishment (..) immense biographical information (..) the most comprehensive collection of Reshevsky’s games ever offered to the public.”

IM Jeremy Silman, in Inside Chess:
"Without any doubt, the best book ever written on this important and overlooked subject."

Chess Base USA:
“what a wonderful book.”
