Brilliant!
Compiled by nasmichael
--*--

Fred Reinfeld gathered together a collection of Brilliancy Prizes from the Chess Masters (ISBN # 0-486-28614-2) and I have thoroughly enjoyed the book so far (as of Jan. 2007). I will pick 10 from this collection and place them here. It is possible that this collection already exists, so I will keep to my favorite ten.
