Product Details

The Grandmaster, originally from Riga, Latvia, is widely regarded as one of the most aggressive and inventive chess players of the modern era, an argument backed up by his wealth of amazing games, rich in tactical fireworks and extraordinary moves. Fire On Board begins where the best-selling first edition left off in 1996. Shirov traces his progress at the top of the chess world since that year and presents a delightful collection of his favorite games, all explained in great detail to the reader.

Author Since becoming a Grandmaster in 1990, Alexi Shirov has firmly established himself among the world's leading players and has a string of tournament victories to his name. Highlights of his career so far include a runners-up spot in the 2000 FIDE World Championship, plus an impressive match victory over the BGN World Champion Vladimir Kramnik. More recently, Shirov came outright first in the 2004 Sarajevo super-GM tournament, his winning margin over his nearest rival being an emphatic 1 1/2 points.
