Anatoly Karpov is one of the greatest ever Chess World Champions with his greatest strength being the subtle maneuvering of his positional play. Many of his opponents were baffled by the profundity of his strategies, but in this book award-winning author Tibor Karolyi explains Karpov's genius. Karolyi has selected Karpov's most entertaining and instructive strategic wins from 1986-2009 when Karpov was battling with his young rival Garry Kasparov for chess supremacy. It was during this period, at Linares 1994, that Karpov achieved what statistics show to be the finest ever tournament performance.
