Paul Keres' Best Games, Volume 2: Open and Semi Open Games

The legendary Estonian player Paul Keres was one of the strongest players never to win the World Chess Championship. The ‘Crown Prince of Chess’ was universally admired for his clear-cut style of play and chivalrous personality. Three times Soviet Champion and on seven occasions a candidate for the world title, he was for over a quarter of a century one of the elite of the chess world. Egon Varnusz concludes his authoritative study of Keres’ finest games with commentaries on a further 240, all this selection opening 1 e4. All are classified according to opening variation, offering both the student and connoisseur a deeper insight into the theory and practice of open and semi-open chess.
