Book Description

Walter Browne is a living legend of chess. A hurricane of a player with a daredevil approach of the game, he was and is famous for ending up in hair-raising time-trouble.

During the peak of his career, in the 1970's and 80's, Browne won the US championship six times as well as of countless national and international tournaments.His career in poker is almost as impressive: he is a regular competitor in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, and has pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars in poker wins.

In this memoir Walter Browne recounts his formative years, how he befriended and played Bobby Fischer in New York City, how he travelled the world, made his name and lived his life. He annotates his best chess games from over four decades, great attacking games full of sacrifices and fireworks, in a clear style that is accessible for amateur players.
