9784871875455: World Champion Smyslov and His 120 Best Games

This collection of best games of Smyslov is probably the best collection of his annotated games in Descriptive Notation. This book was first published in 1958, the year that Vassily Smyslov was World Chess Champion. Smyslov was born on 24 March 1921. He won the two strongest chess tournaments of that decade, Zürich 1953 and Amsterdam 1956. He was a world champion candidate eight times in 1948, 1950, 1953, 1956, 1959, 1965, 1983 and 1985. He died in Moscow on 27 March 2010 at age 89.

About the Author:

Alexander Liepnieks was born 5 November 1908 in Latvia. He died 28 April 1973 in Nebraska (SSN 506-36-4463). His name in Latvian is Aleksandrs Liepnieks. He is best known for writing “Chess Psychologist World Champion Tal” ISBN 4871875466 published in 1961 and for editing a Latvian chess magazine. Alexander Liepnieks was a life long friend of the parents of my Latvian wife Anda. They left Latvia together in 1944, lived together as Displaced Persons in Germany, came to America in 1951 as refugees, and were sponsored to Lincoln Nebraska together by a church organization. They are buried near to each other in Wyuka Cemetery in Lincoln Nebraska where he has a chess piece carved on his tombstone. I never knowingly met him but I did visit his grave because he is buried near to the graves of the parents of my Latvian wife, Anda. His grave stone is memorable because of the chess piece carved into it. Jack Spence was born September 20, 1926. Spence was a rated chess expert, best known for publishing compiled collections of games in major leading tournaments. He did so many of these that no complete list is available. There might even be a hundred of them. For example, he did a tournament book for the 1960 US Open in St. Louis. As I played in that tournament, I would like to get that book but I cannot obtain it anywhere. Spence published tournament books for most of the US Opens of that era as well as playing in many of those events. He also did annotated games collections of many top grandmasters. Among his works are “The Chess Career of Rudolph Spielmann” in three volumes, “The Chess Career of E. D. Bogoljubow” in two volumes, “The Chess Career of Richard Teichmann”, “The Wertheim Memorial Chess Congress 1951”, “The New York Chess Tournament, 1927”, “United States Chess Championship 1948”, “Carlsbad 1923”, “Carlsbad 1929” and “Bled 1931”. His co-author here, Alexander Liepnieks, participated in the great tournaments at Carlsbad 1923 and Carlsbad 1929, but not in the grandmaster section. Jack Spence died in November 1978 in Nebraska. SSN 507-22-9121
