His style is basically positional with emphasis on the harmonious development and placement of his pieces. His games are often spectacular gems of strategy and often quoted in many texts. A great master of the endgame, he is most credited with his book with Levenfish on Rook Endgames which is a standard text for anyone on the topic.
I am a fan of his play generally in imbalanced positions where material is traded for initiative. So looking forward to Bradley's lecture which takes place on Feb 10 Friday 8pm at the Club. You will definitely have a great time trying to guess some of Smyslov's plans in the middlegame and endgame!
