Signed edition! The Best Games Chess Experiences of London based FM Andrew Smith Large Hardback.

Andrew Smith foreword The idea to write a book only occurred to me during my travels when I found myself lounging about on isolated beaches in the south Pacific, when I was sometimes the only 'western' traveller.

My idea was to recall and recount the stories surrounding some of the games I had played and then find the 'score' of the actual game when I returned to the UK.As a result, nearly all of the games illustrated in this book date back to before 2002, although there are a few examples of more recent games when, for whatever reason, a space appeared.I briefly annotated most of the games without reference to a computer program, to reflect my thoughts during the game, so there are inevitably lots of errors in the analysis.

My Chess games come with a health warning! Most ideas and analysis are, at best, speculative, and at worse totally unsound! But so what that is the nature of a sporting encounter.In my prime, I briefly achieved a FIDE rating status above ELO 2300, allowing me to be awarded the title of FIDE Master (FM), which fortunately lasts for a lifetime because I have never returned to that rating level!

Please note, this book is printed in a large A4 hardback size. 415 pages. Weight, 1.35kg.
