ON MODERN CHESS PART FOUR KASP V KARP 1988-2009
Did this title catch most of us by surprise? I just got my stock today.
66 annotated games with almost half from the fifth match (1990). Several tournaments including knock out, Linares, some rapid and blitz. Another beautiful production.
Kasparov also discusses what it's like to put on an event where there is only bitching and moaning by others. Now he knows for sure you just can't please everyone. He also recounts a speech he gave where he "challenged" the right of FIDE to hold world championship matches, etc. (As usual, this type of remark comes AFTER one has become a world champion. Even then there is only limited "power.")
All Karpov and Kasparov games with lots of interesting commentary. Of course many of us love chess history and there is a lot of it here. 432 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Retails for $45.00. If you buy it from me at G&L Chess you will save $9.00. If you have a 2010 Gold Card you will save $13.50. I will ship for FREE.
I expect more later. Right now I have less than half a dozen on hand. Send an email if you are looking for a quick ship.
Also just in last night is Andrew Tocher's In Your Face Chess Novelties. It is $15.95, 115 pages. If you want it with the Kasparov book mentioned above, FREE shipping there also. If you want ti by itself it is two bucks extra. As always I look forward to hearing from you.
