|May-12-08|| ||Benzol: I wonder if he's related to David Bronstein?|
|May-12-08|| ||whiteshark: <Benzol> Whatever gave you that idea?|
What is his book <Wisdom in Chess> about?
|May-12-08|| ||Benzol: <whiteshark> <<Benzol> Whatever gave you that idea?>|
His father was Iokhonon Bronstein and his mother was Ester-Malka Aptekar.
His book "Wisdom In Chess" I know of but I've never actually seen. <Richard Taylor> might be a better person to ask there. The last time I spoke to Bob Mitchell he said Lev was preparing another book for chess students. As far as I know it hasn't appeared yet but it isn't too far away.
|Jul-11-09|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: I once owned /Wisdom in Chess/. IIRC, it was a lot of tactical training, but really needs a competent teacher to explain it properly.|
|Oct-22-16|| ||diagonal: The <NZL Championships in 1975/76> saw a triple tie for the title (without play-off), after 15 and a half years young Murray Chandler lost in the final round to William Fairhurst (multiple Scottish Champion) thus allowing record title holder Ortvin Sarapu (born in Estonia, known in New Zealand as "Mr Chess") and Lev Aptekar (ex-USSR), to catch up. First-timer (in alphabetical order) Aptekar, Chandler, and Sarapu:|
