CLEARANCE - The Brussels Encounter OHRA - HardcoverProduct Code: CB0327RB
The OHRA tournament, played in Brussels in December 1986, was a chess event of exceptionally high calibre. Indeed, in terms of the average Elo ratings of the contestants it was the strongest tournament in the history of the game. In addition, it was the first tournament in which Kasparov had competed for three years, his first as a world champion.
For those reasons, the BBC chose OHRA Brussels for its new Chess Classic series. Using the 'vouce-over' techniques made popular by the old Master Game programs, viewers are given an opportunity to eavesdrop on the grandmasters' thoughts. We are indebted to the BBC for permission to reproduce extracts from these players' thought tracks in this volume. We should also like to thank Chess Classics Producer, Wendy Sturgess, for her encouragement in bringing this book out quickly, to coincide with transmission of the series.
Thirteen games were covered by the BBC. This book includes those games as well as the other seventeen played in the tournament.
