    Smyslov's Best Games

    Vasily Smyslov was a titan of chess logic.  He played 3 World Championship matches with Mikhail Botvinnik, drawing the first (Botvinnik retained his title in 1954), winning the second in 1957, and losing the third in 1958.  He also had impeccable endgame technique and also had many brilliant attacking victories.

    Let's see ten of his creative efforts.
