Among the highlights are Kasparov vs. Topalov; Kasparov vs. Wijk aan Zee; the super-computer Deep Blue’s historic first win over Kasparov; Boris Spassky’s “James Bond” Mating Combination; and Bobby Fischer’s “Game of the Century.” Study these games and learn about defense and counterattack, logical opening play, endgame strategy, psychological warfare, and how great players think.

For the famous games which appear in other books and anthologies, the authors have provided the most thorough and careful annotations you will find.

You will want a copy on your shelf. * John Watson *
