WCC Index [Zurich 1953]
Compiled by Atsa
--*--

These are the games in order according to David Bronstein's excellent book, "Zurich International Chess Tournament 1953." He participated in the tournament with the strongest in the world at that time as a Candidates match to determine the challenger for then world champion Mikhail Botvinnik. The complete list of participants in addition to Bronstein include: Smyslov, Keres, Reshevsky, Petrosian, Geller, Najdorf, Kotov, Taimanov, Averbakh, Boleslavsky, Szabo, Gligoric, Euwe, and Ståhlberg. A treasury of games, as Bronstein (and two of his fellow players who also compiled books) well knew, which are as interesting to read about as to play through. While specific games may have excerpts from Bronstein's book quoted, this list is meant as recommendation to purchase and read through this book yourself, and to give easy reference for people playing through the games.
