This work is an authoritative and comprehensive survey of former World Champion Petrosian's greatest victories. Author Raymond Keene is the "Times" and "Sunday Times" chess correspondent. Well-known author Raymond Keene is an acknowledged expert on Petrosian Subject is currently enjoying a critical renaissance. This book contains 71 deeply annotated chess victories of Tigran Petrosian (World Champion from 1963 to 1969) against the leading players of his day, some of which are in print for the first time. The authors' authoritative but accessible language makes it a good read for the amateur as well as a cast-iron network of interlocking variations to satisfy the professionals. Petrosian was underrated as world champion in his day (many of his achievements were drowned out by the furore surrounding Bobby Fischer) but he is now being critically reappraised - Garry Kasparov paid fulsome tribute to him at a recent London lecture. This insightful book aims to restore him to his rightful position in the pantheon of chess greats.
