Rudolf Spielmann's philosophy of play was this: whenever possible, attacking chess! He was known as one of the greatest creative and imaginative players of his day. Because of his style of play, Spielmann continues to be relevant and is studied by players of each new generation who want to hone the ability to execute combinations and dictate the course of the game. The games presented in this collection include only short games, where Spielmann is victorious in 26 moves or less. Each of these victories is an instructive lesson for anyone who wants to master the secrets of attack, initiative and modern dynamic chess. About the Author: For over six decades, International Master, Dr. Nikolay Minev has been playing, researching, and teaching chess. He was the champion of his native Bulgaria in 1953, 1965, and 1966. He represented his country in six Chess Olympiads (1954, 1956, 1958, 1960, 1962, and 1966). For nearly three decades, Minev participated in high level international tournaments, three times qualifying for the FIDE Zonals (1954, 1963, and 1967). His best international results were finishing third at Varna in 1960, second at Warsaw in 1961, tied for first at Sombor in 1966, third at Novi Sad 1972, and second at Albena in 1975, where he earned a GM norm. He was awarded the International Master title in 1960. An expert on endings and tactics, Minev was one of the principal contributors to Chess Informant's Encyclopedia of Chess Endings series. He also contributed to early editions of the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings. He served for many years as editor of the Bulgarian national chess magazine Shakhmatna Misl and was a regular columnist for Inside Chess for over ten years. He has written or co-written more than 25 books.
