This revised and enlarged special anniversary edition for his 80th birthday includes both volumes with his games with White and Black. Korchnoi's annotations are honest, detailed and very instructive.

"In all of chess history you cannot find another player with this long-lived discipline, vigour, and ferocity... He still wants to play big games with big ideas. He is one of the greatest truth-seekers." (Garry Kasparov)

On the 23 of March, Viktor Korchnoi will become 80 and therefore Olms has updated and expanded Kortchnoi's 'My Best Games' volume 1&2 from 2001, into this lovely printed one volume eye catching anniversary edition.

Altogether there are 110 excellent analysed games and that means that this new update is good for ten extra Korchnoi games and of course all very readable analysed by the great Viktor Korchnoi himself.

It is not for nothing that the British Chess federation rewarded the book 'Viktor Korchnoi - My Best Games with white' as best book of the year.

Korchnoi, born 23 march 1931, has been one of the world's leading players for nearly half a century. This man is known for his intensive fighting spirit but he is also the greatest player who never managed to win the World Championship.

The book covers his whole chess career starting with his 1951 game against Kamyshov, and the last game in this book holds the game Stefansson - Kortschnoi, Reykjavik 2003.

All games are covered with an introduction text as the following one, extra included for this anniversary print, against the former chess prodigy Henrique Mecking:

Henrique Mecking and the central game of the 1974 match

One of the wonders of chess history was the appearance in the chess arena in the mid-20th century of a young Brazilian, who in a few years acquired sufficient strength and experience to fight for the title of world champion. In Brazil, a country famous for its football but with a lack of chess traditions, there emerged a youngster who at the age of 13 scored 50% in a very strong grandmaster tournament, the so-called 'Interzonal' in Sousse in 1967. The youngster did not rest on his laurels, and in 1973 he won the Interzonal Tournament in Petropolis! Looking at the history of chess competitions, I have to conclude that Mecking's successes were exceptional. I consider the Brazilian player's talent to be comparable with that of the brilliant individuals Mikhail Tal and Magnus Carlsen.

In the world championship qualifying series I had to play a match with Mecking. The winner was to be the first to win three games, not counting draws, with a maximum of 16 games. The match took place in the city of Augusta, in the State of Georgia, in January 1974. The youngster prepared excellently for the match. He found and studied 1200 of my games. He took as his helper a subtle expert on the endgame - Ulf Andersson. A serious battle was in prospect. It would appear that the youngster slightly overrated his chances. He pressed with both White and with Black, but he lacked skill in analysing adjourned positions and he was the first to lose a game (the 5th). But the main battle, a fiercely-contested one, occurred in the central game of the match - the 7th.

Kortschnoi - Mecking,Augusta 1974,

1.Nf3 d5 2.g3 c5 3.Bg2 Nc6 4.d4 e6 5.0-0 cxd4 6.Nxd4 Bc5 7.Nb3 Bb6 8.c4 Nf6 9.cxd5 Nxd5 10.Na3 0-0 11.Nc4 Bc7 12.Ne3 Qe7 13.Nxd5 exd5 14.Be3 Rd8 15.Qd2 Bg4 16.Rfe1 a5 17.Bg5 f6 18.Bf4 Bb6 19.Qd1 a4 20.Nc1 Kh8 21.Nd3 Ne5 22.a3 Nc6 23.Kf1 Qe6 24.Rc1 Qf5 25.f3 Bh3 26.b4 axb3 27.Qxb3 Ba5 28.Red1 Bxg2+ 29.Kxg2 Qe6 30.e4 Nd4 31.Qxb7 dxe4 32.Qxe4 Qxe4 33.fxe4 Ne2 34.Rc4 Nc3 35.Rd2 Nxe4 36.Rdc2 Nxg3 37.Nc5 Nh5 38.Be3 Re8 39.Kf3 Bb6 40.a4 g6 41.Bf2 Re7 42.Rb2 Bd8 43.Rb7 Kg8 44.Nd7 f5 45.Rb8 Rxb8 46.Nxb8 Bc7 47.Nc6 Re8 48.a5 Bxh2 49.a6 Kf7 50.a7 Ra8 51.Rd4 g5 52.Rd8 Rxa7 53.Bxa7 g4+ 54.Kg2 Bf4 55.Rd7+ Kg6 56.Bd4 h6 57.Rd5 Bg5 58.Ne5+ Kh7 59.Rd7+ Kg8 60.Nf7 Nf4+ 61.Kh2 Ne2 62.Nxg5 hxg5 63.Be5 1-0.

One of my favourite games in this book is his 1962 fight against Tal:

Korchnoi, Victor - Tal, Mikhail [A62] USSR-ch30,Yerevan,1962

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 exd5 5.cxd5 d6 6.Nf3 g6 7.g3 Bg7 8.Bg2 0-0 9.0-0 Na6 10.h3 Nc7 11.e4 Nd7 12.Re1 Ne8 13.Bg5 Bf6 14.Be3 Rb8 15.a4 a6 16.Bf1 Qe7 17.Nd2 Nc7 18.f4 b5 19.e5 dxe5 20.Nde4 Qd8 21.Nxf6+ Nxf6 22.d6 Ne6 23.fxe5 b4 24.Nd5 Nxd5 25.Qxd5 Bb7 26.Qd2 Qd7 27.Kh2 b3 28.Rac1 Qxa4 29.Bc4 Bc8 30.Rf1 Rb4 31.Bxe6 Bxe6 32.Bh6 Re8 33.Qg5 Re4 34.Rf2 f5 35.Qf6 Qd7 36.Rxc5 Rc4 37.Rxc4 Bxc4 38.Rd2 Be6 39.Rd1 Qa7 40.Rd2 Qd7 41.Rd1 Qa7 42.Rd4 Qd7 43.g4 a5 44.Kg3 Rb8 45.Kh4 Qf7 46.Kg5 fxg4 47.hxg4 Bd7 48.Rc4 a4 49.Rc7 a3 50.Rxd7 Qxd7 51.e6 Qa7 52.Qe5 axb2 53.e7 Kf7 54.d7 1-0.

Korchnoi gives the move 31.Bxe6! but in the 'Mammoth book of the Greatest chess games' by Burgess,Nunn and Emms a question mark!

31.Bxe6 gives black a chance to get back in the game by reviving his inactive pieces.Taimanov gives 31.Qd3 Bd7 32.Bh6, when it is unlikely that black will survive for too long.

But Korchnoi explains as only that 29 ... Bc8?! is the decisive mistake: 'This move, like the previous one, was made quickly by my opponent, without thinking.'

Conclusion: A classical masterpiece that belongs in every chess library! With kind permission
