Anatoly Karpov

The English Opening is a flexible system of play in which an understanding of key ideas is often as important as the latest theoretical novelty. In this book, former World Champion Anatoly Karpov annotates 30 important and interesting games, from recent times, in the English Opening. The games are arranged according to opening variation and include many more example games in Karpov's annotations.

Karpov believes that, by studying these theoretically important games, the reader wil develop a better understanding of the strategies and tactical motifs behind the English Opening than would be the case if he or she simply attempted to learn variations by rote. Karpov himself features in 17 of the 30 games here, a tribute to the fact that many new ideas in the English were introduced by the author.

Anatoly Karpov was World Champion from 1975 to 1985, FIDE World Champion from 1993 to 1999 and is one of the strongest and most successful chess players of all time.

Published 2007, softback, 191 pages.
