Daniel Gormally

A Year Inside the Chess World

Sample pages (pdf)

English chess Grandmaster Danny Gormally finds his life at a crossroads. Bored with Berlin defences, sick of the endless grind of the English chess circuit, he tries his luck on the European scene.

In this at times hilarious and tragic account, Gormally shares the inner workings of the chess world - a world riven with insecurities, strange social customs and petty rivalries - while casting his analytical eye even on topics as disparate as eccentric waiters, strange Amsterdam zoos and inspiring mountain passes. It's a story you won't want to miss.

Daniel Cormally was born in 1976. His peak rating was 2573. International Grandmaster since 2005. Former member of the English National Team. In 2015 he tied for the second place in the 102nd British Championship.

Published 2016, softback, 244 pages.
