Genna Sosonko

Gennady Sosonko lived the first twenty nine years of his life as a trainer of Soviet players in St Petersburg. He later moved to the Netherlands and followed a career as a leading chess Grandmaster.

In this book he reminisces about the great players he knew and coached during his time in the Soviet Union writing about many episodes and incidents which offer unique insights into the personalities and lives of these greats. Sosonko has created marvellous pen portraits of Tal, Botvinnik, Vitolins, Zak, Geller, Furman and others. As he says "Each time after one of those, whom this book is about, passed away I wanted to read about them .. What I myself knew. More than this - what only I knew. Hence this book." A fascinating and enjoyable read.

Published 2009, softback, 224 pages.
