Item description for Endgame Virtuoso Anatoly Karpov: The Exceptional Endgame Skills of the 12th World Champion by Tibor Karolyi & Nick Aplin...
Anatoly Karpovs legendary endgame technique has always been something of an enigma. Karpov became worldchampion 1975 (having been preceded by Bobby Fischer). He managed to win positions which nearly everybody else estimated as a draw with his fine end game technique. This book for the first time takes a close look at this end game technique, ex plaining the finer points better than Karpov himself has ever cared to do. A very in structive and en tertaining book.
