But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery.

    Catalog Code: B0078GB

    Ever since Nimzowitsch introduced his flexible, dynamic defence to the queen's pawn, debate has raged over White's best reply. Many variations have been in and out of fashion, but one line in particular has proved an enduring weapon - the sound and solid 4 e3 line, known as the Rubinstein Variation. The 4 e3 Nimzo is extraordinarily rich in strategy. All manner of different central pawn-structures can arise, such as the blocked centre characteristic of the Hübner Variation and a variety of IQP positions.

    This sampling of Benjamin's games will give the reader a good idea of the style and technique he has used to win titles. A tremendous counter-puncher, Benjamin's attacks often explode from seemingly blockaded positions. His pieces seem to be retreating only to turn and bravely attack the foe. Indeed, his middlegame style is distinctly individual, relying on strong endgame play to take advantage when his late middlegame attacks do not.
