Max Euwe & Jan Timman

The acclaimed classic 'Fischer World Champion!' conveys the full drama of the 1972 Fischer-Spassky clash, both on and off the board. Finally available in an English edition, it is a blow-by-blow account of the perplexing prelude to the match by the late Max Euwe, the then FIDE President. 'Fischer World Champion!' features the original analyses of the games by Jan Timman.

The match of the Century electrified the world. Chess was front page news everywhere. No one wanted to miss a word, a move or even the slightest detail about the struggle of Bobby Fischer against the terrifying superpower that for decades had exploited its superiority in chess as an irrefutable justification of communism. Bobby was handsome but lonely, brilliant but strange.

The world looked on in anxiety and anticipation as Bobby quarrelled about the venue, the number of games, the prize-fund, the television rights, the cameras, the lighting, the chairs. Read all about it here together with GM Jan Timman's annotations to all 21 match games plus photos from the event. This new edition commemorates the death of Fischer in January 2008 with a tribute by former World Champion Garry Kasparov and an essay by Jan Timman on the life and chess of Bobby Fischer.

Published 2009, softback, 175 pages.
