Book DescriptionPower Chess at it's Best!

Moldovian Grandmaster Victor Bologan is among the world's strongest and most dynamic grandmasters. You are invited to join him on a highly personal, autobiographical journey, as he presents 52 of his games, deeply annotated. These games are highlighted against a background of his life experiences and development, resulting in one of the most splendid game collections available today. The text and games are nicely complemented by over thirty photographs, and indexes of players, openings, tournament results and even strategic, tactical and psychological techniques.

"This is a book that ought to be read by every chessplayer who is serious about continuing to mature as a player ... This book contains games with many different types of plans, beginning with the most varied kinds of openings. Today, it's the fashion to expand ones opening repertoire, incorporating different sometimes structurally contradictory openings; this book will give you advice, usually from the author's perspective, on how to choose an opening. The author talks about the method he used to make his choices, and about the concrete philosophy standing behind each decision. These could be elements of chess psychology relating to a specific opponent, or perhaps changes in creative attitudes stemming from work with different trainers. Or it could be just following the current fashion in chess for every chessplayer, even the most creative, is obliged to study the development of chess thinking, and try to keep up, to stay always on the cutting edge of contemporary chess developments. And here too, in practically every game, one may find general recommendations, 'fine-tuned' to the concrete particulars of each position. I find this sort of advice to be the most valuable, because general advice that is not illustrated by a concrete example loses the greater part of its practical value." From the Foreword by Garry Kasparov
