Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam

Every year some of the world's best chess players gather in Linares for the now famous tournament. Journalist Dirk ten Geuzendam describes the atmosphere, the players and the experience of Linares which compels him to return year after year. This is an excellent pen portrait of the personalities and emotions involved in a top class tournament.
Linares! Linares! is the engrossing evocation of the personalities, intrigues and conflicts that have made the supertorneo a unique tradition.

Meet the players and the aficionados: Why does Vassily Ivanchuk have trouble praying when he is thinking of God? Was Gata Kamsky's orange juice really poisoned?

Why did Judit Polgar exclaim 'How could you do this to me?', when she confronted Kasparov in the lobby of the Anibal Hotel?

And perhaps the most intriguing question the author tries to answer: why does time come to a standstill in this provincial Spanish town when the chess players arrive?

The author is editor-in-chief of New in Chess magazine.

Published 2001, softback, 126 pages.
