Bobby Fischer is a legendary chess figure, and many consider him to be the greatest chess player of all time. Fischer was a child prodigy who later developed into a phenomenal force. During his peak years he dominated his nearest rivals in a manner that had previously never been seen. Fischer achieved his goal of becoming World Champion after beating Boris Spassky in their 'Match of the Century' in 1972, an epic contest which did more than anything else to popularize the game throughout the world. In this book, former American Open Champion Cyrus Lakdawala studies his favorite Fischer games. Lakdawala examines Fischer's renowned skills in attack, defense, counterattack, exploiting imbalances, dynamic elements, accumulating advantages and endgame play. Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practicing of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.
Cyrus Lakdawala is an International Master, a former National Open and American Open Champion, and a six-time State Champion. He has been teaching chess for over 30 years, and coaches some of the top junior players in the U.S.

Editorial Reviews

Cyrus Lakdawala faced a tough challenge in finding something new to say about Bobby Fischer's games...The San Diego International Master succeeds in staking new ground by offering modern annotations assisted by the Silicon Oracle and making an eclectic selection of games including one against Korchnoi from the blitz tournament at Herceg Novi in 1970 and a couple from the 1957 Cardoso-Fischer match.?The thing that makes Lakdawala's book different from others... is its use of the Everyman move by move format that is constantly questioning and challenging the reader.
