I bought this 3-vol. set of Bobby Fischer's amassed video games again within the 1990's, and will attest that it has all his well-known video games and suits, together with his 1972 global Championship fit with Spassky, and the 1992 Fischer-Spassky rematch. Many, if now not so much, of the video games are good abd deeply annotated.
Vol. 1 covers the years 1955-1960; Vol. 2 is going from 1961-1967, and Vol three covers 1968-1992. My purely grievance approximately this set, is that typically while the particular strikes of video games are surrounded through dense annotations, it may be a section tough to tell apart the strikes of the video games from the strikes of the research, yet it really is nonetheless more straightforward to head via that the footnotes in ECO occasionally! :)
i have lengthy prominent Fischer's accomplishments and elegance of play. it is a tragedy that he by no means received the pro support that may very likely have enabled him to regulate to stay a extra general life.
Anyway, in case you can locate this assortment or any a part of it, i like to recommend it enthusiastically.
