Book Description

This is the first of two volumes devoted to the chess career of former World Champion Tigran Petrosian, whose masterly positional play and near invincibility earned him the name of "Iron Tigran." Equally and excellent tactician, Tigran Petrosian habitually sacrificed material — particularly rook of minor piece — in the execution of his deeply thought out plans which often reduced an opponent to a state of complete helplessness. Of over 1000 games featured in this book, the most valuable are those which appear with annotations by Petrosian himself. From a study of these instructive comments, in which the Grandmaster reveals the very essence of a given position and explains an appropriate course of action, you will gain a better understanding of the subtleties of strategic play — the most difficult part of chess.

  • An Unbeatable White Repertoire after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3
    "In this book, we shall provide the student with an unbeatable system for the white pieces after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3. We teach you how to play against the Hungarian Defense, the Philidor Defense, the Latvian Gambit, and the Petroff Defenses. This gets us to the main lines, the Three Knights and Four Knights Game with the Belgrade Gambit included(the 1st time GM Evans ever recommended a gambit!). These 'hold the draw in hand and go for the win' openings have been researched like never before. There is more dynamic play, for those that know them, than ever realized. Here is something to build on if later in your career you want to head for the Giuoco Piano or Ruy Lopez." - Ken Smith.
