One copy left in stock! Signed, numbered, limited hardcover edition. Garry Kasparovs legendary first coach is now aged 82 but he signed 200 special hardback editions of this book and this is one of them. Grandmaster Igor Zaitsev ranks as one of the most creative chess minds ever in the history of the royal game. This is his book of secrets and methods, his remarkable lifes work. Zaitsev unearthed astonishing ideas which even giants of the game had overlooked. World champions Tigran Petrosian and Anatoly Karpov insisted on Zaitsevs analytical help in their matches, wanting to be first to play his profound discoveries, such as the famous Zaitsev Variation of the Ruy Lopez. Zaitsev was himself a tournament champion. With his sharp, combinative style, he won dozens of Most Beautiful Game awards. Many of these games provide context for his lessons. But Zaitsev is even more than a renowned coach and competitor. Part analyst, part champion, part chess philosopher, and part chess poet, he reveals the underlying logic and beauty of chess in a way no one else has ever done. In his eye opening title chapter, Attacking the Strongpoint, Zaitsev makes explicitly clear a common strategic element never formalized until this book. Often overlooked by amateurs and even GMs, the idea can lead to winning tactics in many games! Backed up by toplevel games, Zaitsev also provides deeplevel explanations about: Combinations and Piece Harmony, Strategy and Structure,Learning from the Cycle of Chess Epochs, The Role of Reason and JudgmentThe Chess Law of Conservation of Energy, Strategy: Evolution vs. Revolution and Recognizing a Favorable Structure. The volume is topped off by supplemental games, a complete autobiography by Zaitsev, a special foreword by world champion Garry Kasparov, as well as tributes and memories from world champion Anatoly Karpov and famed coach Mark Dvoretsky.Hardback, 240 pages, signed by the famous author, numbered as one of the 200 hardback copies.
