    I wonder if Stein disliked trading Queens as much as he disliked playing for a draw Undecided

    Sad to say that we never got much exposure to his chess genius ... and it was our loss in the West during those years.  I hope to learn more about Leonid Stein,  from the games he played here ... truly amazing chess genius.   I mean he just "handled" Petrosian, one of the greatest defensive players ever ... wow!

    Nice video these games are beautiful good choice this is refreshing ! I had heard of Leonid Stein in Kasparovs books on my great predecessor.Kasparov praised his calculating abilitys if i remember well he said that he did not calculated variation but  saw through them. A true genius! tx

    These were wonderful games.  It was nice to hear a little bit about Leonid Stein, a few of whose games I had played over in the past (from Chernev's books, I think?).  I look forward to more.
