I bought several books from Batsford something like 8 years ago. It was only recently (Yes, I know it doesn't say much of myself as a book reader!) that I realized that several pages in the book were blank.

The pages in question are:

130, 131, 134, 135, 138, 139, 142, 143, 146, 147, 150, 151, 154, 155, 158, 159

If someone has the book and is willing to scan those pages, could you please get in touch with me?

Cheers.

Javier. Have you come to Sydney to play in our nation's esteemed chess events? Good to know that our chess scene has attracted the attention of fine players such as yourself :D

I don't have the book. I say taht with regret; Paul Keres was a better writer than a lot of today's poseurs.

Typical of Batsford to stuff up a book like that. A lot of modern chess publishing is shonky. Look at that "My System, 21st century edition". :mad:

A friendly user from this forum has now sent me the scanned pages.
Thanks Ian! :)

My family has been living in Australia for more than 20 years now.
Chess scene? what chess scene! :hmm: oh, you mean Sydney grade matches? :)
Seriously now, The Sydney International Open Chess Tournament looks like a fantastic event which I hope has continuity over the years.

I've been living in Sydney for nearly 2 years but I'm now back in Europe for a few months, but recently I got my permanent resident visa back (2 years of legal battle!), so I hope to be back in Sydney sometime in 2007 (probably winter...).
