Tibor Karolyi

Vlastimil Hort is a Czechoslovak-born German Grandmaster. During the 1960s and 1970s he was one of the world's strongest players and reached the 1977-78 Candidates Tournament for the World Chess Championship.

Hort was a Czech citizen for the first part of his chess career, winning national championships 5 times in the 1970s. He achieved the Grandmaster title in 1965. While playing for Czechoslovakia he won a number of major tournaments (Hastings 1967-68, Skopje 1969, etc.), gaining recognition as one of the strongest non-Soviet players in the world. This led to him representing the "World" team in the great "USSR vs. Rest of the World" match of 1970, where he occupied fourth board and had a +1 score against the Soviet Grandmaster Lev Polugaevsky. He defected to West Germany after the 1985 Tunis Interzonal, winning the national championship of his new homeland in 1987, 1989, and 1991.

For this book International Master Tibor Karolyi interviews Hort about his life and chess career and presents a selection of his best games with extensive annotations.
