Viktor Korchnoi is a chess legend. In a career spanning over 60 years he has won countless grandmaster tournaments, been a four-time Soviet Champion, a World Championship Candidate on numerous occasions and twice fought for the World Championship in famous battles with his adversary Anatoly Karpov.
Throughout his career Korchnoi has continually refined his style and is as comfortable in defence as in attack. He provokes opponents, accept sacrifices, defends precisely and then ruthlessly exploits weaknesses. In this book, former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala studies his favourite Korchnoi games and examines Korchnoi’s skills in the key areas of attack and defence, initiative, exploiting imbalances, accumulating advantages and endgame play. He demonstrates clearly how we can all improve by learning from Korchnoi’s play.
Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.
