Find the Right Plan with Anatoly Karpov by Anatoly Karpov
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


* One of the world's greatest chess players reveals the secrets of how he plans his play * Packed with invaluable information on how to mobilise your forces, avoid threats and win the game * Illustrated with a wealth of annotated examples from the author's own games The legendary Anatoly Karpov has won over 250 Grandmaster tournaments, many more than any other player in chess history, and his games are characterised by his gradually and patiently pushing an opponent back to the wall, before finally finishing him off with a deadly blow. In this unique book, aimed at ordinary club players, Karpov gives a wealth of tips on how to incorporate this dramatic style of play into your own repertoire, through careful planning and evaluation of positions: looking at the fire-power of your forces, being aware of threats to your own king and how to safeguard it, and careful control of open lines. As he says himself: `Finding the right plan is the key to success'. Warmily and accessibly written, but with Karpov's usual air of authority, this book makes you feel like you are spending an evening with the man himself, and will help you to absorb a little bit of the Karpov magic.

Author Biography

Anatoly Karpov is a living legend; he dominated the chess world for over a decade as the world chess champion between 1975 and 1985. Garry Kasparov dethroned him and the two ideologically opposed Russians have had a bitter rivalry ever since. He is considered the best positional player in the history of chess and is the author of several other books on chess theory.
