Weekly Endgame StudyEvery week we present you an endgame study - instead, this week we selected ten studies by Vasily Smyslov, who was the most productive World Champion as it comes to endgame studies. It was an early love of his, and after he stopped playing tournaments he returned to his old hobby and produced many more brilliancies.
