    The new work of the famous grandmaster, coach and theoretician A. Dreev is devoted to typical game techniques in the endgame. Avoiding the banal examples that roam the pages of textbooks, the author pays a lot of attention to unusual situations in which you have to make responsible independent decisions, and not rely only on memory and knowledge of basic positions. Almost all fragments are taken from the practice of elite grandmasters, including many examples of the work of the author, a recognized master of the game in the endings. & nbsp; Carefully selected exercises will help the reader to consolidate the knowledge gained and increase their level of play in the endings, and most importantly & ndash; imbued with sympathy for this stage of the party, which is so important today. For a wide range of chess lovers. Photos by E. Kublashvili and from the author’s archive.

    Dmitry Plisetskiy's comment: - In the new edition of the 1st volume of the book by Garry Kasparov & quot; My great predecessors & quot; a number of historical facts were clarified and comments on all (!) 148 parties were thoroughly revised. Many previous estimates have changed in the games of Andersen, Morphy, Steinitz, Chigorin, Tarrash, Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine ... For example, in such famous games as the 7th game of the match Lasker - Steinitz (1894) or Pilsbury - Lasker (Petersburg 1896) , and indeed in all key parties of the match Capablanca - Alekhine (Buenos Aires 1927). Garry Kasparov’s five volumes & laquo; My great predecessors & raquo; has no analogues in chess literature: the 13th world champion talks about the fate and work of the twelve previous champions and their rivals, about a century and a half struggle for world championship. Exploring the famous games under the microscope of powerful computer programs, the author changes many previous estimates and, in essence, summarizes the development of chess in the 20th century. The first volume is about & laquo; uncrowned kings & raquo; past and the first four official world champions & mdash; Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine. Here is the second edition, radically supplemented and revised. 48 pages of artwork on coated paper. & nbsp;

    A new book by a respected grandmaster and trainer is devoted to the most pressing issue: how to make working with a computer as efficient as possible? Using the example of numerous detailed commented games of the super tournaments of recent years, the author explains what kind of opening philosophy a particular representative of the world chess elite professes, and how he builds his opening repertoire. Despite the intrusion of computers, the middlegame to a much greater degree retained its individual coloring. Therefore, it is interesting to trace how the strongest chess players of our time approach the solution of non-standard problems that arise during the game. Even the best players make sometimes incomprehensible mistakes that make it difficult to find a logical explanation. In the final part of the book, the author attempts to understand the nature of some errors. For a wide range of chess lovers.
