The Best of Reshevsky

Samuel “Sammy” Herman Reshevsky (born Szmul Rzeszewski November 26, 1911, to April 4, 1992) a chess prodigy that grew into a leading American Grandmaster. Rshevsky was a strong contender for the World Chess Championship from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s: he came equal third in the 1948 World Chess Championship tournament and equal second in the 1953 Candidates Tournament. He was an eight-time winner of the U.S. Chess Championship. An outstanding match player throughout his career, Reshevsky excelled at positional play and could be a brilliant tactician when required. He took a long time over his opening moves, and often found himself under time pressure – but this sometimes unsettled his opponent more than it did Reshevsky. Reshevsky was an accountant and a well-regarded chess writer. For those of you that are D4 players, Bill says studying Reshevsky is a must!
