Description: "In this book, the authors continue to develop their idea from the first two volumes where they explored the most important feature of chess through the eyes of a great Champion, Vassily Smyslov. The book is built systematically and includes numerous different ‘test your tactics’ elements, such as simple solutions, win the material, tactics according to Smyslov, make a choice, unexpected opportunity, answer the question, play better than the champions, complicated calculation and practical exercises.
I can heartily recommend this book to all players even up to and including Grandmaster level. You will find joy while solving the puzzles and improving your calculation."
