Garry Kasparov My Great Predecessors Part III Petrossian Spassky

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 Lxkasmgp3

The battle for the World Chess Championship has witnessed numerous titanic struggles which have engaged the interest not only of the chess enthusiasts but also of the public at large. The chessboard is the ultimate mental battleground and the world champions themselves are supreme intellectual gladiators.

This magnificent compilation of play from the 1960s through to the 1970s forms the basis of the third part of Garry Kasparov's long-awaited definitive history of the World Chess Championship. Garry Kasparov, who is universally acclaimed as the greatest chess player ever, subjects the play from this era to a rigorous analysis--the examination being enhanced by the use of the latest chess software. This volume features the play of champions Tigran Petrosian (1963-1969) and Boris Spassky (1969-1972).

However, this book is more than just a compilation of play from the greats of this era. Kasparov's biographies of these champions place them in a fascinating historical, political, and cultural context. Kasparov explains how each champion brought his own distinctive style to the chessboard and enriched the theory of the game with new ideas.

Day 63 & 64

Caro-Kann Defence Advance Variation and Gambit System - Anatoly Karpov

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 86530._UY475_SS475_

Former world champion Anatoly Karpov is a living legend, the winner of more tournaments than any other player in history. His opening analysis is absolutely definitive. In this indispensable resource for every serious player, he covers the main positional variations of the Caro Kann: the Classical System (1 e4 c6, 2 d4 d5, 3 Nc3) and the Advance Variation (3 e5). These lines may not be as fast and furious as the Panov Attack (the subject of another book in this series), but as Karpov shows, precision and good timing can give Black a successful defense and even a strategic advantage.

Creative Chess Opening Preperation - Viacheslav Eingorn

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 00238093

Grandmaster Eingorn is an chess opening trendsetter. Throughout his career, he has introduced many novel concepts in the openings, and some of the systems he has introduced have gone on to become absolute main lines, such as the Rb1 Exchange Grünfeld. Here he explains the methods by which he prepares his openings and works out new systems from scratch, and how readers can do the same.
The broad topics he discusses include Experiments in the Opening, Disturbing the Equilibrium, Strategic Planning, and Opening Formations. He follows this up with a section of examples from modern practice, and theoretical articles on several of the opening lines that he has pioneered, taking us through the creative process, and the highs and lows of the practical testing and refinement of the ideas.

French Defence 3Nd2 - Lev Psakhis

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 053314349

The theory behind the French Defense has grown so exponentially that it takes three entire volumes to cover it all; here is the first, written by the recognized master of the move. Former Soviet champion Lev Psakhis covers the sequence 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 nd2, known as the "Tarrach variation." Though it has long been known to provide excellent attacking prospects for white, a younger generation of players has amply demonstrated that the Tarrach has many exciting counterattacking resources, too. With a wide choice of games to demonstrate the strategies, plus more than 200 illustrations and a discussion of rare lines, this up-to-date, comprehensive manual is a must for players hoping to improve their skills.

SOS Secrets of Opening Surprises Volume 1 - Jeroen Bosch

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 51552QZD8FL._SY291_BO1,204,203,200_QL40_

No time to study chess opening theory? Secrets of Opening Surprises (SOS) consists of highly playable, unusual opening ideas. Because an SOS is such an early deviation from the regular lines in mainstream openings (usually before move six), the probability of you being able to bring the variation actually on the board is very high. If you are tired of main lines, if you are looking for simple but effective weapons to perplex your opponent, then you will feel very much at home in the world of SOS.

Comprehensive Chess Endings Volume 2 Bishop against Knight, Rook against Minor Piece - Y Averbakh

SofaKingKool Library November 2019 51ymcfsysll._sl500__1

Comprehensive Chess Endings is a five volume master work by one of the world's leading authorities on the Chess Endgames, Grandmaster Yuri Averbakh. Grandmaster Averbakh is now the World's Oldest Grandmaster. He was born on February 8, 1922. He is now 90 years old and is still active in chess. This volume 2 was originally published in Russian. Ishi Press has published the Russian Language version of this volume. That is Averbakh Chess Endings Bishop against Knight, Rook against Minor Pieces ISBN 4871875024 This English version is a direct translation from the Russian except that the order of the volumes has been changed. It is the same as volume 2 in this English Language version. The contents are exactly the same, other than the translation from Russian to English. This volume in this series was first published in the Soviet Union in 1954 with a blue hard cover. It was reprinted with modifications in 1981 with a soft orange cover. Each time, the order of the volumes has been changed. Here we are following this order: Comprehensive Chess Endings, Volume 1, Bishop Endings, Knight Endings ISBN 4871875032 Comprehensive Chess Endings, Volume 2, Bishop Against Knight Endings, Rook Against Minor Piece Endings ISBN 4871875040 Comprehensive Chess Endings, Volume 3, Queen and Pawn Endings Queen Against Rook Endings Queen Against Minor Piece Endings ISBN 4871875059 Comprehensive Chess Endings, Volume 4, Pawn Endings ISBN 4871875067 Comprehensive Chess Endings, Volume 5, Rook Endings ISBN 4871875075 An earlier series of the same books had a different order. There the order was 1: pawn endings 2: bishop and knight endings 3: bishop vs knight; rook vs minor pieces 4: rook endings 5: queens endings. Because of the popularity of these books, they have become rare and difficult to obtain. After a worldwide search we still have not been able to obtain a copy of volume 5. We had even began to suspect that it was a phantom book, a book that had been planned and announced but never actually published. Even the Russian language original editions of this book are difficult to obtain, although 100,000 were printed. In most cases in these books, there is a co-author. Here, however, the sole author is Yuri Averbakh.
