    Book Description

    Since his surprise choice of the Grunfeld Defence in the 1986 World Championship match, Garry Kasparov has regularly adopted the Grunfeld in tournaments and matches around the world. Against Karpov, however, this opening has proved an unfortunate choice and Karpov has won more World Championship games against Kasparov in this opening than in any other. Highlights of this book include:

    * Original winning ideas against the Grunfeld
    * Unique insights into Karpov's preparation
    * Detailed coverage of key fashionable variations
    * Fascinating tips from a former World Champion

    No ambitious player can afford to take on or play the Grunfeld Defence without this book!

    Anatoly Karpov is one of the greatest players of all time. During his time as World Champion between 1975 and 1985, his tournament record was unprecedented as he outclassed his contemporaries time and again. His fierce rivalry with Garry Kasparov has now endured for five matches for the world title and numerous tournaments around the world.
