FIDE Master Dr. Philip Corbin is the former 7-time National Chess Champion of Barbados. He recently retired from the international chess arena and has candidly annotated his most memorable chess games over a 40 year period from 1970 to 2010 in this new book. Played in many countries around the world, these games range from fiery friendlies to epic encounters over 12 Olympiads against some of the world's choicest players. CALYPSO CHESS chronicles not only Philip's own chess biography, but the development of chess in Barbados over the past four decades (1970-2010). It is entertaining, featuring 300 of Philip's best and most exciting games, each wrapped with an associated story-line format and title. It also provides an history of performances of Barbados teams in international chess tournaments from the 1970's up to and including 2010.
