Product Details

Garry Kasparov's talent was recognized at an early age, but it was at the latest at the age of only 15 when he qualified for the renowned USSR national championship that he was also considered by the chess world as a whole as a possible future champion. But on the way to the throne of world champion Kasparov had to overcome numerous obstacles. Kasparov felt that he was being held back by the Karpov-friendly Soviet federation and by FIDE. He finally broke through and at the age of 22 became the youngest ever world champion. He also conducted his struggle at the board above all and enriched chess with his incredibly dynamic playing style as well as his scientific preparation for games. Kasparov was far ahead of his time in his employment of the new electronic aids: computers and database programs such as ChessBase. His numerous encounters with the pragmatic Karpov saw the collision of two quite different playing styles, styles in which these two players were far and away the best in the world. In addition to these matches, Kasparov also contested many tournaments and always appeared with the same mind-set: win games and tournaments!

On this DVD a team of experts gets to the bottom of Kasparov's play. In over 8 hours of video running time the authors Dorian Rogozenko, Mihail Marin, Oliver Reeh and Karsten Muller cast light on four important aspects of Kasparov's play: the opening strategy, tactics and the endgame. As a bonus there is video analysis of Kasparov's computer games. In the major database with training questions, 162 games with 575 training questions, you can hone your own tactical understanding with the help of Kasparov's strokes of genius.
