History of the Chess Pieces


One of the most exciting moments in preparing Chess Informant is when we receive the annotated game by Garry Kasparov. Will it be a famous game from recent practice or a little-known gem? How did he choose it? Which games were among his candidates? So many questions, but only one answer in "Garry's Choice." From Kasparov, you can expect only the unexpected!

As with his previous column in Chess Informant 113, you will never guess his chosen game! As a hint, I will say that the game was an opportunity for Garry to showcase his beloved King's Indian Defense. These deep and interesting annotations, by the highest possible authority, are an unforgettable lesson and above all a true revelation of extraordinary chess art.
