  Product Description-Tarrasch's Best Games of Chess (Hardinge
                     Simpole Chess Classics)
  Tarrasch was the dominant force in European chess in the early 1890's and his ability to win top level tournaments continued
    via his huge triumph at Vienna 1898 on to the "World Tournament Championship" of Ostend 1907. Tarrasch was rightly
 regarded as the teacher of generations of European and world Masters , hence his title Praeceptor Germaniae - the Professor
                                                       from Germany.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful Wonderful book by Reinfeld, May 27, 2003 By A Customer
This review is from: Tarrasch's Best Games of Chess (Paperback) The Amazon entry is mistaken: this 385-page collection of
183 of Tarrasch's best games is written by Fred Reinfeld. It is nice to have a Reinfeld book where he is focusing so intently on
one player. His annotations are wonderful and typically, aimed at the improving player. The games are gems, as Tarrasch
played in a classical style that priduces vast rewards to the interested student. The vast majority of these games are not in 300
Best Games, so this is an essential work to the fan of Tarrasch. A great Dover book.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful Synopsis, July 10, 2007 By Hugh Davies "Teenage Chess Prodigy" (UK)
This review is from: Tarrasch's Best Games of Chess (Hardinge Simpole Chess Classics) (Paperback) Tarrasch was the
dominant force in European chess in the early 1890's and his ability to win top level tournaments continued via his huge triumph
at Vienna 1898 on to the "World Tournament Championship" of Ostend 1907. Tarrasch was rightly regarded as the teacher of
generations of European and world Masters , hence his title Praeceptor Germaniae - the Professor from Germany. His victories
in individual games included wins against Capablanca, Alekhine, Lasker, Nimzowitsch , Tchigorin , Pillsbury , Steinitz and more.
Each of Tarrasch's games is a lesson in method and accuracy in itself, hence his wins are superb teaching models for the
aspiring chess student. Fred Reinfeld was a renaissance man, with interests in politics, numismatics and chess. On the latter
subject he was known as the man of 100 books, with scholarly essays on Capablanca, Nimzowitsch and - here- Tarrasch to his
credit. As a master active on the US chess scene Reinfeld drew with Alekhine and defeated Reshevsky.

Fine Reinfeld book on a great master's games, January 25, 2007 By johnnyqb (United States)
This is one of Reinfeld's better books, in my opinion. He annotates 183 of Tarrasch's best games, in a concise and instructive
manner. This book is like having a fine chess teacher take you through many games of a master. The opening repertoire is
rather limited, so you will not see many Sicilians, but this is a gret collection of master games from the Classical era. Most of
these games are after the time period represented in Tarrasch's own "300 Games of Chess" so don't worry about this book
being redundant. Since that book and Tarrasch's "The Game of Chess" are so valuable as instructive works, I consider this
collection to be an essential part of my library, to see more well-annotated examples of Tarrasch's games.
