Nunn: 101 Brillant Chess Miniatures
One of the worlds finest writers on chess presents his selection of brilliant modern games of 25 moves or fewer. Much can be learned from these sparkling miniatures. John Nunn examines how the loser might have avoided disaster, and explains how the winner managed to punch home his advantage so effectively.
The games themselves are absolute gems. In a roll-call of the world elite, grandmasters and World Champions feature as both victor and victim. Fischer, Timman, Kramnik and Shirov all have wins. There are two wins apiece for Spassky and Korchnoi, five by Tal and seven by Kasparov. The format (with three diagrams per page, and up to six per game) enables the book to be enjoyed even if a chess set is not handy.
"A tremendous work" - George Koltanowski, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
"Chock full of stunning games... Nunns notes are concise and informative" – Cecil Rosner, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
"For many years there have been prophets of doom predicting the demise of chess as we know it. Then a book like this comes along which demonstrates that chess is very much alive, that games can be won, and won quickly into the bargain" – Alan Sutton, EN PASSANT
