100 Chess Masters Trade Secrets -Soltis
Compiled by takchess
--*--

Games from an instructive book I own. I think this is one of Soltis better books. It consists of 4 sections of priyomes-1) 25 Key Priyomes 2) 25 Must know endgame techniques 3) 25 crucial sacrifices 4) 25 exact endings.

If you like this sort of thing, it is worth picking up or suggesting to your public library to add it to their collection. (Coach K started a collection on this which I am working to fill in some of the blanks; thanks Coach K).
