Alternative Views:


In this book, Grandmaster Edouard examines the latest aspect of his chess career - being the second of a world-class player. He worked with Veselin Topalov form 2010 until 2014, notably helping him with the 2012-2013 Grand Prix series to become a world champion candidate.

Romain tells you everything about his 'magic' experience in this book. Going through the tournaments where he assisted GM Topalov, the author not only analyzes beautiful games, but also explains how they managed to invent new ideas and even reveals some that haven't been played yet! He also answers questions most chess fans will be curious about: How do you become the second of a top player? What does the job involve? How much do you worktogether? How do you prepare for an important game or important tournament? What is a chess genius like in real life?

If you enjoy fascinating games and unexpected opening ideas, and would like to know what goes on behind the scenes, this book is for you!
