Grandmaster David Bronstein left a legacy of courageous opening experimentation, innovative tactical ideas, and unique strategic plans. He played bold, competitive chess, and was undaunted by any opponent.
His games demonstrate the workings of a creative, ingenious mind, open to fantasy, imagination, and exploration of the unknown.
This book is a collection of fifty games in which Bronstein's victory comes in 24 moves or less. Some of these games are gems. All are worthy to be seen.
