Just one copy left in stock! Once a year some of the world's sharpest minds used to gather in the Andalusian town of Linares. In the splendid isolation of Don Luis Rentero's hotel Anibal, the leading grandmasters of chess decide, as Garry Kasparov said who is who for the coming year.Linares! Linares! is the engrossing evocation of the games, intrigues and conflicts that have made the supertorneo a unique tradition.Meet the players and the aficionados: Why does Vassily Ivanchuk have trouble praying when he is thinking of God? Was Gata Kamsky's orange juice really poisoned? Why did Judit Polgar exclaim How could you do this to me?, when she confronted Kasparov in the lobby of the Anibal Hotel? Was it a coincidence that general Juan Perea's son got married in Mexico on the day when Manolete was killed in the Linares bullring?And perhaps the most intriguing question the author tries to answer: why does time come to a standstill in this provincial Spanish town when the chess players arrive? In this book you will find not the moves or the pictures of the players, but their riveting stories. Softback, 128 pages. Dimensions 147 x 222 x 9mm,199g.
