Garry Kasparov's Opening Repertoire

Product Code: B0137IS

img

Book Description

Grandmaster Leonid Shamkovich was among the world's greatest chess opening analysts and theoreticians. His published works were deeply studied and used by Bobby Fischer. Here, Shamkovich creates the Master-Study of World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov's Chess Opening Repertoire, assisted by FIDE Master Eric Schiller.

This work has been updated in 2012 to include all of the latest World Chess Championship matches by Garry Kasparov.

World Champions exert a strong influence on fashion in opening play, and Garry Kasparov is no exception. His advocacy of such variations as the Tarrasch, Catalan and Gruenfeld has brought these openings from the back pages of opening manuals into the forefront of theoretical discussion. The purpose of this book is to explore the development of Kasparov's opening repertoire and to present the core of a repertoire which the reader can apply in his own games. All recent theoretical developments have been incorporated into the work, so that the most important variations of these openings are critically up to date as at June 2012.

  • Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess - VOLUME II
    This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes. The 1985 match when Kasparov brilliantly won the final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion. Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.
