    An old classic collection of great games

    Ok! This book is in the old descriptive chess notation. But, putting that aside (learn descriptive notation if you are beyond being a beginner!) it contains games of the strong masters up to the 1930s with a 'light' analysis of all 500 games! I don't recommend this for anyone new to the game, but if you have been playing chess for awhile and want a nice collection of games from the old masters, this book is perfect! If you are looking for well analyzed games (or must have algebraic notation) instructional purposes look at 'Unbeatable Chess Lessons' for either the novice or intermediate skilled player or for the more advanced player either 'Understanding Chess' or 'More Unbeatable Chess Lessons'.

    One of the best chess books ever written!

    500 Master Games of Chess is arranged by opening. Every game has been annotated with the perfect combination of concrete variations and enthusiastic yet accurate explanatory text. The games themselves are masterpieces of brilliant play, usually though not always in crushing attack with sacrifices. I think these old games have more instructional value than recent games because they are more likely to flow with a thematic idea from beginning to end. This is a great book in terms of quantity of material, instructive value, and sheer entertainment.

    DESCRIPTIVE CHESS NOTATION

    If you buy this book please beaware that the notation is in Descriptive form which is a very old way of notation and may be difficult to play through the games. Great games though

    Really! 500 ANALYZED master Game!

    This is a massive collection of games taken from master games. The games are all arranged by opening. This makes focusing on the games in the openings you play easy to find. The book doesn't contain any recent games and is produced in English Descriptive Notation. The analysis is light, but at times the authors really get into it. A wonderful collection of games that belongs in every chess players library!
