Product Details

Acclaimed as the ' Fastest Brain in the World,' Viswanathan Anand is the world number one and World Champion. Experts rate him as one of the biggest natural talents in the history of the game. In March 2007 he reached the number one spot on the world ranking list by winning the prestigious Linares tournament. In September 2007 at Mexico City Anand became undisputed World Chess Champion ending a schism in the chess world which had lasted since 1993. If his talent as a rapid chess player is legendary, his records in classical chess have been superlative. In January 2006 he became the only player in the tournament's 70-year history to win the Corus Chess event five times (1989, 1998, 2003, 2004 and 2006). He has won the Linares Super Tournament twice (1998 and 2007), the Dortmund GM three times (1996, 2000 and 2004), and countless other important events like, Madrid Masters, Biel, etc.

The first DVD with videos from Anand's chess career covers the very beginning of his career to 1999. It starts with his memories of how he first learned chess and shows his first great games (including those from the 1984 World Junior). The high point of his early developmental phase was winning the 1987 World Junior. After that, his career develops rapidly: the first victories over Kasparov, becoming a World Championship Candidate in both the FIDE and PCA cycles the high point of which was the World Championship match against Kasparov in 1995.
