Leonid Stein - Forgotten Genius
Compiled by Open Defence
--*--

Leonid Stein - This Ukrainian born genius is largely forgotten amongst chess circles. Despite his brilliant play and good life scores against leading players he never made it to the Candidates largely due to the six from a single nation limit imposed by FIDE. He died prematurely, but left us some memorable games
