    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;

    The book of Gennady Sosonko is devoted to the fate of the outstanding chess player David Ionovich Bronshtein. Bronstein's peak occurred in the middle of the last century, when he challenged Botvinnik himself and almost overpowered him, but this "almost" inflicted him a wound that never healed until the end of his life. The author has repeatedly met and talked with Bronstein, and these conversations have not only recreated the thoughts and character of one of the most original grandmasters of the past, but they also bring us back to times that are not simply found in world history. Not being a biography in the classical sense of the word, Sosonko's book, which is read in one breath, goes beyond the limits of the hero's biography, posing eternal questions, to which there is no unambiguous answer.

Their scenario is usually similar to each other: an unpretentious debut, mid-game without a special tactical battle, in which the pieces change one after another, and finally, an approximately equal endgame, where Andersson wins a couple of dozen moves ... for some reason wins, and without noticeable mistakes rivals. At first it seems that this is just an accident, then there is a suspicion that everything is not so simple, at last you feel admiration for the seemingly unpretentious, but immaculately delicate game. Positions with a minimum number of figures have always been & laquo; skate & raquo; Andersson.
