Buchbeschreibung London, B.T. Batsford., 1994. 21.5cm x 13.8cm. 174 pages. Original softcover (paperback). Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Rare ! Karpov has tortured countless opponents with the Spanish, one of the oldest and most famous of all chess openings. White develops quickly in true classical style, applying immediate pressure to Black's position. This opening leads to the most rich and varied positions, appealing to players of every style of play: tactical players revel in the sharp gambit variations, while those with more positional ambitions are able to select from a number of more sedate, but equally testing, alternatives. Karpov's own personal account shows you all the tricks of the trade. He draws extensively on his own experience on both sides of the Spanish to illustrate the main strategic themes in this most vibrant of openings. Features Karpov's analysis of his World Championship games against Korchnoi and Kasparov. Artikel-Nr. 41433AB
