Yugoslav grandmaster Svetozar Gligoric, once rated the strongest European chess player outside of Russia, has pursued a long and distinguished chess career. This highly acclaimed collection of over 100 of his best games, including classic wins against world champions and other top players such as Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian, Spassky, Fischer, Keres, Korchnoi, Larsen, Najdorf, and Reshevsky, now appears for the first time in English.The title of the book 'I Play Against Pieces' reflects Gligoric's thoroughly objective approach to chess, which has always been characterised by great clarity and logic, resulting in a wealth of model games. The fact that these games, replete with instructive tactics and strategies, are classified under openings will particularly benefit readers interested in the study of Queen's Pawn Openings as White and the King's Indian Defence and Ruy Lopez as Black of which Gligoric was a true connoisseur.Über den Autor:
