Item description for My Best Games (Progress in Chess) by Anatoly Karpov, Igor Zaitsev, Raymund Stolze, Ken Neat, Ross Andru, Michael Grief & Jon Buller...

In 1975, Anatoly Karpov was declared chess champion of the world when the eccentric Bobby Fischer declined to defend his title against his Russian challenger. "Tolya" went on to prove that he was no paper tiger over the next three decades, during which he held the FIDE world championship for 17 years and won more than 160 major chess tournaments, an all-time record. The unique career of the Russian grandmaster can be appreciated from these 100 games, each of which is annotated by Karpov. All chess enthusiasts can profit and learn from these incredibly matches.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Best Games (Progress in Chess)?

A Great Selection and Comments  Sep 5, 2008
Like always, Karpov has been great in selection of 100 number of his best games and explaining the games strategies and moments. I Loved It!
One should be fair to Karpov and Lasker.  Aug 1, 2008
Why I was young, I don't like Karpov's or Capablanca's games. My feeling
is the the win was mechanical and boring I like attacking players like Alekhine, especially Adolf Anderson, the winner of the " Immortal Game. " But as I grow older, my taste change, players like Tal, Shirov, Judit, there games I still like, but I also now appreaciate the games of Karpov. His stategy is excellent. If one have patience to play through his games, the games are as enjoyable as Kasparov's or Alekhine. Why I mention Lasker, I think he with Karpov do not have the respect from Chess Fans. Lasker and Karpov, from any point of view, concerning their results, playing stregth, must be included in the greatest players of all time. Fischer's style is in between Karpov and Kasparov. So that is why Fischer's games are so fascintating. But it is pity for chess fans that Fischer did not play after becoming Champion. Imagine the following scenario, if Fischer continued to play, Karpov, even if the aborted championship acutally held and even if Karpov lost, Karpov would still improved. Then comes Kasparov. Then let us imagine a year in 1980s, say 1985. Fischer at that tme is 42, if still active, then he still would be one of the or the the strongest players in the world, Karpov,at his peak in 1985, then the rising star Kasparov, if these 3 greatest player of all time play to each other, friends, imagine what happen!! But this is just a dream!!! I then woke up.In this occasion, I also like to protest for Lasker for not including in greatest players of all time of chess. His strong middle and endgame technique,his shart tactis, he held the longest records of championhip for 27 years, he played still very strong even if he grew old, ( Alekhine, even at his best, just won ONE game from Lasker when Lasker waslong long time passing his peak ). So no matter how other people think, I think Lasker
must be ranked as one of the greatest chess players of all time!!!
