The best, the worst, the shortest, the oddest, the longest, the most deceitful, the most memorable, the most brilliant, the dumbest—of players, games, matches, tournaments, books, ideas, etc.
The lists are replete with background details, fascitnating games and positions, and curious facts- an essential part of any chess collection.
The new edition contains 25 percent more lists, games, diagrams and annotations. The majority of lists from the first edition have been updated or expanded—or both.
