9780080297491: Grandmaster Performance (Russian Chess)

Soviet super-GM Lev Polugaevsky, one of the world's leading players over the last quarter of a century, has several times been a Candidate for the World Championship. He presents here 64 of his best games selected and grouped to give a clear impression of how victory is gained in chess. Among the points he singles out are: a fundamental knowledge of the openings, skill in attack and defense, strategic planning, endgame technique and – a factor of increasing significance – the psychology of play in critical situations. Grandmaster Performance is the follow-up book to the acclaimed book “Grandmaster Preparation” by Lev Polugaevsky. Grandmaster Preparation was primarily concerned with the discovery and development of a new chess opening, that became known as the Polugaevsky Variation. This book is a collection of deeply analyzed and instructive grandmaster games by Polugaevsky.
