    Is it better to study grandmaster games or games by people a little better than me? I was thinking of purchasing The Complete Book of Tal's Game..its his autobiography. Question is. how does one get the most out of it?

    Buy the Tal!  It's a lot of fun with a bunch of great games and anecdotes.

    Oh yeah, and annotate your own games too. Smile

    For me, Grandmaster games. Players only a little higher than you will still play rather flawed chess. Choose the best kind of examples to try and emulate.

    When studying games from a book, try to guess what your move would be and then compare your conclusions with the player's/author's and try to find lessons to take out of it.

    Tal was not only a brilliant player... he was also a very entertaining writer and story-teller.

    I love to study grandmasters' games especially the great players. I tried studying players' games better than me slightly like the games of 1800-2200 ELO. I got bored only Foot in Mouth. Back to studying grandmasters' games Cool
