En nærmest sensasjonelt kvalitativ og velredigert bok om hele den todelte kandidatturneringen 2020-21 i Yekaterinburg. Alle de 56 partiene er skikkelig kommentert av ulike storspillere, helt opp til Gelfand og Kasparov.

Forlagets egen omtale:

The 2020-2021 FIDE Candidates Tournament held in Ekaterinburg, starring super-grandmasters Ian Nepomniachtchi, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Anish Giri, Fabiano Caruana, Ding Liren, Alexander Grischuk, Kirill Alekseenko and Wang Hao, delivered an awesome display of fighting chess.

Grandmaster and FIDE Senior Trainer Dorian Rogozenco, coach of the German national team from 2014-2020, provides a comprehensive move by move analysis of all 56 games together with an assembled Dream Team of 13 super-class GM guest commentators including Garry Kasparov and Boris Gelfand. The commentary covers opening strategy and novelties, middlegame battles and instructive endgames, psychology and practical observations, together comprising a swathe of learning material valuable to players from club level to titled masters. The book is illustrated with a selection of official FIDE photographer Lennart Ootes’s best shots from both halves of the event.

Forfatter og redaktør Rogozenko i innledningen:

When contemplating the structure of the book and how to make it most informative, instructive, but at the same time entertaining for readers, I came to the conclusion that it would be useful to diversify the style of annotating the games. When 56 games of a tournament are annotated by the same person, there is some risk of monotony and thus the idea of inviting one top-class guest annotator per round was born. So I contacted some very special people and extremely strong players, most of whom I have known for many years.

Among the guest annotators you can find several ex-World and European Champions, the coaches of Carlsen and Caruana, leading players of their countries and extremely talented youngsters, who are already very strong Grandmasters as well. I would like to thank all members of this Dream Team for their great work and I express the hope that the readers will enjoy their in places very different styles of annotation.
