Bobby Fischer and His Predeccessors

in the World Chess Championship

Product Code: B0232IS

img

The distinguished author, himself a past world champion and President of FIDE, analyzes aspects of Fischer's play in comparison with previous holders of the title Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Lasker, Petrosian, Smyslov, Spassky, Tal. He examines the relevance of the respective ELO ratings of the earlier champions and provides more specific evidence for considering the true status of Fischer among the champions.

Though no constructive judgment is possible, the comparison of Fischer's strengths and weaknesses in various compartments of the game with those of other champions affords great insight into his style, and shows him to be on a par with the greatest of those earlier heroes, a player whose main weakness was his own human fallibility.

  • Strategy & Tactics in Chess
    In this book, the great Dutch World Champion, Dr. Max Euwe, discusses both strategy and tactics in chess, having special emphasis on the latter, to which about two-thirds of the book is dedicated. Tactics have been, comparatively speaking, neglected in chess literature, and it is therefore, interesting to find that five out of eight chapters of this book are devoted to combinations which are analyzed and classified.
