Kasparov has written "........I should like to begin with the fact that after Tarrasch and Nimzowitch he is one of the most brilliant popularisers of the game"

Quiz: who is Kasparov referring to? What is the source of this quote?

It's difficult to set quiz questions in the Google age.

Or is the idea that people are intended to get the answer?

Not absolutely sure if google will work in this instance!?

The quote is from a foreword to a book.

But I am sure that people will get the answer soon enough.

“For the sake of brilliance it is worth taking a risk!” That is how Bronstein played, even in his advanced years. After Tarrasch and Nimzowitsch he is perhaps the most outstanding populariser of the game, a genuine teacher of the chess world.” – Gary Kasparov

I can't find the actual quote source though; perhaps a foreward to a revamped version of his Zurich 1953 Tournament Book

Maybe some secret notes?

Secret Notes - David Bronstein & Sergey Voronkov

It's like an open google exam, isn't it? :owned:

It does, but I didn't reveal the answer so that people would have to do at least a little bit of work.

Fischer. Has to be. If he weren't, then he should!

Why don't you seek to apply it to a certain someone who obsessively persists with his conspiracy agenda? :rolleyes:

Inputting "secret notes" into a certain chess retailer's web page yielded no results.

At least we can say this is not being done for promotional purposes!
