    World Champion Annotates In A Brief Manner

    World Champion Alekhine annotates thirty of his own games along with other Grandmaster games. He doesn¿t explain every move and when he does write it is a short 1-2 sentence evaluation, often just twice a game. Alekhine¿s variations are obviously pre-computer and they¿re not particularly extensive. I found his annotations to be helpful despite their terse style since Alekhine placed them at the move where I tended to ask questions, but I am rated 1900+ USCF, and have some experience with Alekhine¿s games. I doubt that I would have benefited from (or enjoyed) this book as much if I had read it when I was a new player or rated below, say, 1400 USCF.
