Reshevsky shot to fame as a child prodigy able to take on and defeat hordes of adult players at one and the same time. This book covers his early career up to the mid 1940's when Reshevsky was established as one of the leading contenders for the world chess crown. His later games are published as Reshevsky's Best Games - Volume 2. Sammy Reshevsky was one of the greats of chess, with victories against no fewer than seven world champions to his name - Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Fischer, Lasker, and Smyslov were all numbered amongst his victims. He is a also a major contributor to First Piatigorsky Cup and Second Piatigorsky Cup.
