|Jun-29-14|| ||whiteshark: <Selected Chess Studies and Problems> by Attila Koranyi|
140p, Caissa Chess Books, 1999
The author of this book, Attila Koranyi, was a very successful composer of chess studies, which earned him numerous awards. <Shortly before the completion of this collection of his best studies he died unexpectedly.>
Friends completed his work, so that this book now but could still appear. Lovers of this genre could expect a bunch of very interesting chess studies that were also presented nicely. Also, the print is excellent, and all texts are written both in English and in Hungarian.
