    NitPic: This was written long before computers were any good at chess, so most of the evaluations of long sequences don't hold up.

    This tournament featured ten of the strongest players in the world at the time. This included the current world champion, Petrosian, and the next two champions, Spassky, and Fischer.

    The double round-robin format meant that each player played each other twice, once with white and once with black.

    All ninety games are annotated by one or both players.

    The book uses descriptive notation.

    90 games, 1966

  10. book: The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever P
    All 62 Games in Irving Chernev's book "The Most Instructive Games Of Chess Ever Played"

    This is still one of my favorite books. Chernev shows how games are won and lost between strong players - through small lapses rather than gross blunders.

    ---

    Loose squares next to the enemy king that can be coordinated on are dangerous, dangerous, dangerous.

    <LOOSE> squares near the enemy king are the second most important thing on the chess board, right after checks, because they are mating focal point just waiting to happen.

    If your queen makes a square <LOOSE> near the enemy king, then bring in your other pieces to <COORDINATE> on this square and threaten mate. If your other pieces make a square <LOOSE> near the enemy king, then bring in your queen to <COORDINATE> on that square and threaten mate.

    Black To Play: 20 ... ?

    The dominant tactical feature in this position are are the <LOOSE SQUARES> next to the White f1-king: both the dark-squares f2 and g1 are attacked by the Black e3-queen and defended -only- by the White f1-king.

    So what does Black (Negi) do? He simply <COORDINATES ON THE LOOSE SQUARES NEXT TO THE ENEMY KING> with 20 ... ♗f6-d4!, putting both the f2- and g1-squares en prise.

    Position after 20 ... ♗f6-d4!

    White resigns because he has no good defense to the twin threats (<DOUBLE ATTACK>) to the f2- and g1-squares.

  16. Deep Exchange Sacrifices, Part One: Petrosian
    The exchange sacrifice is something that has always intrigued me, not as a sort of mating sacrifice, but as a deep, positional sacrifice, the type Petrosian was famous for, sacrifices that don't immediately gain material, and aren't obvious (for us mortals, at least).

    This section is devoted purely for Petrosian, well known for his deep sacrifices of the exchange, often even when playing for the world championship. Anyways, enjoy!
