Once he played a simultaneous exhibition in the English Parliament, letting Members of the Parliament to choose their figures. All twenty of his opponents decided to be White. “What a rare example of consensus in the English Parliament!” has exclaimed Bronstein. “And on an initiative of Russian citizen nonetheless,” has replied a member of the audience.

GM Adrian MikhalchishinTechnical Director of European Chess Academy»There are many great chess books. For example, Botvinnik's Analiticheskie raboty or Fischer's Best games. Still, my favourite is Keres' book »100 games«. This has been my first chess book, a gift from my grandmother for Saint Nicholas 1966. The level of Keres' commentaries in this book is unsurpassable.«
