Amazing Set, Amazing Crimson Stain Review by Mickey Ladz
Without question, the most impressive and accurate reproduction Soviet set ever made by CB or anyone else. . The set is simply gorgeous.in all respects. I like the fact that this set is larger (4.2") than the original (3.75"). For one, its more suitable for tournament and blitz play. Unlike the original , its pieces are weighted for better stability. And the hand carved knights are quite imposing. And the crimson stain, unbelievably gorgeous! The crimson stain/boxwood combination make for a wonderful board presence.This version of the Latvian set is an amazing and highly recommended. (Posted on 7/18/2017)
