Fischer world champion! by Max Euwe( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1972 a boy from Brooklyn broke the hegemony of Soviet chess. Bobby Fischer, the greatest genius the game had ever seen, completed his crusade against the 'commie cheaters' by defeating Boris Spassky in Reykjavik. The Match of the Century electrified the world. No one wanted to miss even the slightest detail about the struggle of Fischer against the superpower that for decades had exploited its superiority in chess as an irrefutable justification of communism. Almost a year before the first move was made at the board, the infighting started. The world looked on in anxiety as Bobby quarrelled

Schakers : portretten by Jan Timman( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In de loop van zijn rijke carrière heeft Jan Timman, zelf grootmeester, tegenover menige grote schaker gezeten. Als geen ander heeft hij op hun handen kunnen kijken - en in hun ziel. Boris Spasski, Bobby Fischer en Garry Kasparov zijn drie van de belangrijkste schakers die hij in dit boek portretteert, niet alleen als spelers. Timman haalt herinneringen op aan Botwinnik en Tal en hij vertelt over de invloed die zij op hem hebben gehad, zowel op als buiten het bord. Hij heeft oog voor hun eigenaardigheden, aardige en onaardige, menselijke en onmenselijke. Bijzonder indringend is het portret van de legendarische Aleksandr Aljechin, die Timman op het spoor komt tijdens een verblijf in Lissabon, tientallen jaren na diens dood: het verhaal is tegelijk betoverend en huiveringwekkend, even magisch als precies

Timman's titans : my world chess champions by Jan Timman( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fascinating book, Jan Timman portrays ten World Chess Champions that played an important role in his life and career. Champions that not only inspired him, but also champions he did battle with. Alexander Alekhine (1892-1946) he never met, but the story of how in Lisbon he bought one of the last chess sets belonging to the fourth World Champion is one of many highlights in the book. Also there is the time when he visited Mikhail Botvinnik in his dacha outside Moscow and watches 'the Patriarch' put on one of the browned laurel wreaths that he won decades ago. Timman has a keen eye for detail, a fabulous memory and he visibly enjoys sharing his insider views, including many revelations of the great champions. Timman's Titans not only presents a personal view of these chess giants, but is also a wonderful evocation of countless fascinating episodes in chess history. Each portrait is completed by a rich selection of illustrative games, annotated in the author's trademark lucid style. Always to the point, sharp and with crystal-clear explanations, Timman shows the highs and lows from the games of the champions, including the most memorable games that he himself played against them

Najdorf x Najdorf by Liliana Najdorf( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among major chess figures of the 20th century, few stand out more than Miguel Najdorf. One of the world's best players for decades, he was also one of the most active and colorful. And his life, both at the chessboard and away from it, was rich in experience, both joyful and deeply painful. In this biography, Najdorf's daughter Liliana paints an intimate portrait of her larger-than-life father. She writes about him, warts and all, showing us her father as a man both greatly talented and deeply flawed, a man at once loving and rage-prone, noble and petty, generous and selfish, jovial but despotic, earthy but vain, exuberant yet deeply sad. A genius who could conduct 40 blindfold games simultaneously and memorize long strings of random numbers, yet forgot where he parked his car"--Page 4 of cover

On September 10, 1984, Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov appeared on the stage of the Hall of Columns in Moscow for the first game of their match for the World Chess Championship. The clash between the reigning champion and his brazen young challenger was highly anticipated, but no one could have foreseen what was in store.
