    Are you a chess addict, or do you just play at it? Whatever you are, you will be enlightened, intrigued, amused by this gossipy, intimate account of chess masters and how they operate.

    Like all of Fine's book, this one combines humor, understanding and profundity. It is a collection of 50 of the finest games played in recent years by the world's greatest masters. Each game has an introduction and is copiously annotated in such a way that a mere beginner can follow the workings of the world champion.

    Chess is more than a game; it is a passion. To people who play these games, the excitement, the thrill, the glory of victory and the sorrow of defeat meant more than the cold logic of the pieces. The author has gone to great pains to highlight the human side of these battles of the giants as one who has known every leading master of the past 20 years well, he is eminently qualified to do so.

    • Grandmaster Repertoire - The French Defence - Vol. 1
      The French Defence is one of the most popular and reliable responses to 1.e4. Black invites his opponent to gain space in the centre, with the intention of undermining the enemy position and launching a counterattack. Although the amount of theory has expanded in recent years, the French often leads to positions where positional and strategic understanding prove more relevant than long sequences of computer-generated moves. Grandmaster Repertoire 14 - The French Defence 1 introduces the Winawer Variation after the opening moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4, and provides expert recommendations against all of White's major possibilities

    • Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik - One Hundred Selected Games
      Botvinnik One Hundred Selected Games is a direct translation in Descriptive Notation of a book in Russian published in Leningrad in 1949. Unlike most other cases where the translator takes some liberties, we have not been able to find any differences in the text between this translation and the original in Russian. Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik was born on August 17, 1911. In 1931 at the age of 20 he won his first of six Soviet championships. He won the World Chess Championship in 1948 and held the title with two breaks until 1963. This book covers the most important period of his career from the time he played in his first serious chess event until just before his winning the World Chess Championship in 1948.
