    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;

    My system was a reference book of many outstanding chess players of the past and present. Blockade and prevention, undermining the base of the pawn chain and maneuvering, excessive defense and a mysterious move - these and many other techniques were laid out on the shelves by the famous grandmaster and teacher Aron Nimtsovich. Written in lively, imaginative language, this is not just a classic, but a truly brilliant positional play tutorial. A chess player who has seriously studied it will learn to deeply penetrate the secrets of the ancient game. The book will be useful both to chess players who have just started climbing the grades of classification, and to their more experienced colleagues. True view of Nimzowicz as an artist and a chess philosopher can only be obtained by those who are familiar with his books. Book My System in Practice especially interesting. In it, he illustrates with numerous examples his strategy, which he developed into a whole system. Alexander Alekhin
