Product Code: B0006SHV

Book Description

From 1971 to 2011 the Chess Informant jury has convened to vote on the best theoretical novelty from the previous volume. Once, and only once, was the nine member jury in complete concordance regarding the winning novelty. It was like a once in a lifetime moment that the stars align in perfect harmony, where one game scores above all others as a clear winner with the maximum ninety points!

Our new book 1000 TN!! collects the best of the best 1,000 theoretical novelties from Chess Informants 11 to 110 and provides an adventurous journey through the development of chess openings during the last forty years. Moreover, in every theoretical line, we add the latest word on the state of theory.

In the "contest" of TN's who actually won the game was of lesser importance than whose idea contributed the most to chess theory. There are sixty players among the winners, with current world champion Viswanathan Anand at the top of the list with nine novelties, one ahead of former world champion Anatoly Karpov. In a meantime, Anand won one more award (Informant 111) so the total number of his wins is 10!

List of TN winners (60): Anand (9 times), Karpov (8), Kasparov, Kramnik (5), Topalov, Velimirovic (4), Shirov (3), Ljubojevic, Beliavsky, Timman, M.Gurevich, Adorjan, Korchnoi, Oll, Svidler, Morozevich (2), Petrosian, Spassky, Gligoric, Tseshkovsky, R.Byrne, Sibarevic, Perenyi, Vitolins, Portisch, Averbakh, Chiburdanidze, Polugaevsky, Geller, Browne, McCambridge, Tal, Miles, Seirawan, Alburt, Van der Sterren, Murey, A.Sokolov, Adams, Gelfand, Illescas, Khalifman, Atalik, Sakaev, Zvjaginsev, Grischuk, Milov, Gallagher, Rogozenco, Ponomariov, Leko, Nielsen, Shariyazdanov, Johannessen, Van Wely, Volokitin, Karjakin, Naiditsch, Dominguez, Riazantsev (1).

Quote by Jan Timman:

"Chess Informant" has been a leading source of information for decades. In the past the emphasis has been mainly on openings, resulting in a tradition that a jury judges most important novelties of each volume. I have been part of this tradition for decades. It is important to establish which are the most important novelties, since it shows the development in various openings. I have always-and I still am! - been doing this work with pleasure.

So, which famous theoretical novelty achieved such unanimous acclaim? That is for you to find out!
