    Book DescriptionThis book contains a collection of the most brilliant, ingenious and outrageous moves ever played by Bobby Fischer, the American who is generally acknowledged to be the greatest chess player of all time.

    These 101 moves - every one a move that either forced checkmate, gained material or lead to an overwhelmingly superior position - have been selected from among all of Fischer's recorded games, most of which were were played under tournament or match conditions. The easy-to-use, interactive presentation, offering one move per page, each with an order-of-difficulty rating, was designed by author Bruce Pandolfini, National Chess Master, columnist for Chess Life Magazine and teacher extraordinaire. This book includes.

    * Individual diagrams that capture each position just before Fischer made his decisive play.

    * Information on setting, opponent, and move number at the top of each page.

    * Helpful descriptive hints

    * Fischer's solution, along with detailed and incisive analysis in the new standard algebraic notation at the bottom of each page.

    * An appendix containing all 101 games in their entirety in algebraic notation.

    Cover the solutions and solve the positions yourself by looking at the diagrams or try setting up your own chessboard. Or use this book as a rich and rewarding source of instruction and as a reference guide. Either way, you'll be fascinated by this adventure into the mind of a champion, stimulated by Pandolfini's ingenious and informative presentation, and elightened by biographical information on Fischer himself. And, most important, you'll be outrageously and roundly entertained for years to come.
