Solitaire Chess by I. A. Horowitz
Compiled by SirIvanhoe
--*--

These game scores were chosen by Horowitz to be played 'Guess the Move' style by readers of the 1962 book. He is probably the innovator of the training technique which later led to the Solitaire Chess series for Chess Life by Bruce Pandolfini. Now you can play these games using 'Guess the Move' here on chessgames.com.
