Paul Keres -- "the greatest player never to have been world champion" -- was a legendary figure in chess. The depth of his conceptions and the elegance and beauty of his play rank him among such immortals as Alekhine, Tal, Bronstein, Botvinnik, and Bobby Fischer. As a chess analyst, Keres had even fewer equals. The first Soviet grandmaster with a regular column in an American chess magazine, his articles for Chess Life between 1968 and 1975 set new standards in chess analysis. Power Chess contains twenty-two of his best articles. Here are incredible rook sacrifices by Bronstein, ferocious attacks by Tal and Spassky, heroic defenses by Korchnoi, subtle endgames by Petrosian and Karpov, uncompromising struggles by Keres himself -- all profoundly analyzed by the greatest annotator who ever lived.
