Anatoly Karpov is one of the chess world’s greatest World Champions, with his prime strength being his subtle maneuvering and positional play. Many of his opponents have been baffled by the profundity of his strategies, but here Karolyi explains Karpov’s genius.

This volume features Karpov’s most entertaining and instructive strategic wins from 1986-2010 when Karpov was battling with his younger rival Garry Kasparov for chess supremacy It was during this period, at Linares in 1994, that Karpov achieved what statistics show to be the finest ever tournament performance.

Tibor Karolyi of Budapest, Hungary, is an International Master, award-winning author and renowned chess trainer. Karolyi coached Peter Leko, a former World Championship challenger, during Leko’s teenage years when in the space of four years Leko improved from promising junior to grandmaster.

Editorial Reviews

Of course, if you love book 1 (and how could you not love the first one?) then you will absolutely want book 2 also! Once again: Karpov’s Strategic Wins (books 1 & 2) are a triumph for Tibor Karolyi, who cements his reputation as one of the world’s finest chess writers, and for Quality Chess – they just keep cracking out great stuff.”IM Jeremy Silman, jeremysilman.com “As with volume 1, Karpov’s Strategic Wins 2 deserves book of the year accolades. The explanations are clearly written, the analysis is precise and in-depth, the game examples are well chosen, and the production is outstanding. Treat yourself and buy it in hardcover, you won’t regret it!” [6 out of 6 stars awarded]Brian Almeida, ChessCafe
