Having fought his way past the world's leading Grandmasters, including Jon Speelman and the former Champion Anatoly Karpov, one obstacle remains between Nigel Short and the world title - Gary Kasparov, the chess giant who has dominated the world chess scene for a decade. Will Nigel Short succeed with the ultimate challenge?
This book charts Nigel Short's astonishing ascent to the chess peaks, through an exciting selection of the most important games in his career. Each game is brought vividly to life by absorbing annotations that provide a valuable insight into the character and playing style of one of the greatest players in the world today. It includes brilliant wins against Kasparov, Karpov, Timman, and other greats of contemporary chess.
