Synopsis: This book is the original and much imitated Solitaire Chess by I.A. Horowitz. Sixty two master games are presented. The reader is asked to guess the next move by the player of the white pieces. If he guesses correctly, he is awarded points. At the end of the game, his score is graded according to how many points he has earned. All the great grandmasters of chess, from Bobby Fischer on down, have used and have recommended the “Solitaire Chess” method to study and improve their play. This book presents a collection of 62 of the greatest attacking games ever played. Games by Fischer, Capablanca, Alekhine, Lasker, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Steinitz, Reti, Marshall, Pillsbury and almost all the other great masters are included here. The author, International Master I.A. Horowitz, provides notes to every game. In addition, the book has been expanded. All the games have been translated into algebraic notation, although the notes are in descriptive.
