The legendary Anatoly Karpov has won over 250 Grandmaster tournaments, many more than any other player in chess history. His games are characterized by the gradual and patient pushing of an opponent back to the wall, before finally finishing him off with a deadly blow. In this unique book, aimed at ordinary club players, Karpov gives a wealth of tips on how to incorporate this dramatic style of play into your own repertoire, through rigorous planning and evaluation of positions: looking at the fire-power of your forces, being aware of threats to your own king and how to safeguard it, and strategic control of open lines. Warmly and accessibly written, but with Karpov's usual air of authority, this book makes you feel as if you are spending an evening with the man himself, and will help you absorb a little bit of the Karpov magic.
