Best-selling and award-winning author Igor Khmelnitsky gathers examples from Bobby Fischer's games that are educational, and entertaining, and can be studied without a board. In each of the examples you will take a seat of Fischer's opponent and be asked to come up with an assessment and a move. Based on your response you are assigned points towards your rating evaluation and a game score towards your "match." Once finished, you will learn how well you have done in the "match," have an estimate of your rating, and know what you need to work on to improve your game. In this book, you will discover: 60 diagrams with multiple-choice questions of varied complexity. Comprehensive answers with diagrams to make reviewing easier. Distributions of answers and other statistical reports by rating. Ratings are assigned Overall and by 13 distinct categories. Bonus section: 20-exercise warm-up, tie-breaker, tips and training suggestions Each position in this book is an unaltered fragment from one of Fischer's games and you are given chance to take the “seat” of his opponent and square off with the chess legend. In one game you will be Mikhail Tal battling Fischer in the World Championship Candidates match (1959), and in another one – Chuck Diebert playing in a simul in Chicago (1964). In each case you are given Fischer’s last move, and it will be up to you to figure out Fischer's ideas and to find the response that would be best to play, as well as to justify it with your thought process. In essence, you will have a virtual match against the chess legend! He will put serious pressure on you, create threats and be evasive, attack with fury and fiercely defend. The positions range from Middlegame to Endgame, Tactics to Strategy, Easy to Complex, etc... You will be graded on each position in two different ways. The first one is fairly scientific, and very familiar to the readers of Khmelnitsky's prior books. The second is there mainly for entertainment purposes.
