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.

    Сергей Всеволодович Белавенец – один из сильнейших советских мастеров предвоенных лет, неоднократный участник чемпионатов СССР, авторитетный теоретик и журналист. Это он придумал ставший знаменитым афоризм: «Шахматы – трагедия одного темпа». А сформулированный им принцип «Не спешить!» стал важным элементом грамотной игры в эндшпиле. Сергей Всеволодович остался в памяти шахматистов как человек на редкость приветливый, спокойный, умный, обладающий врожденным тактом и большой культурой. Он хотел написать популярный учебник для шахматистов-разрядников, тщательно отбирал для него материалы, однако работа осталась неоконченной: в 1942 году С.В. Белавенец погиб на фронте. Его дочь Людмила родилась за год до начала войны. Через всю жизнь она пронесла образ своего отца и во многом под его влиянием решила связать свою жизнь с шахматами. Она была чемпионкой Москвы и СССР, а наиболее крупных успехов добилась в игре по переписке: в 1990 году стала чемпионкой мира, в составе сборной СССР трижды побеждала на Олимпиадах. Людмила Сергеевна систематизировала и обработала учебные материалы, подготовленные отцом, а также отобрала для книги лучшие партии – его и свои. Все шахматные примеры прошли компьютерную проверку; авторы выражают признательность международному мастеру Максиму Ноткину за помощь в этой работе. Учебник Белавенца не утратил своей актуальности: качественных учебных пособий для любителей по-прежнему выходит удивительно мало. Людмила Сергеевна Белавенец – один из лучших детских тренеров в нашей стране. Прирожденный педагог, человек талантливый и мудрый, она продолжает воспитывать новые поколения юных шахматистов. Среди ее воспитанников немало чемпионов мира, России и Европы, мастеров и гроссмейстеров, шахматных профессионалов, тренеров и журналистов. Наверняка ее размышления о проблемах детских шахмат будут интересны юным талантам и их родителям, а также коллегам-тренерам. Для широкого круга любителей шахмат. 2 вкладки – ч/б 16 стр. и цветная 16 стр
