Innholdsrike, lærerike og høyst velskrevne sjakkmemoarer fra Stuart Rachels som i 1989 uventet ble tidenes yngste USA-mester siden Bobby Fischer. Møter med mange kjente sjakkpersonligheter, og severdige stillinger.

Forlagets egen omtale:

At the U.S. Championship in 1989, Stuart Rachels seemed bound for the cellar. Ranked last and holding no IM norms, the 20-year-old amateur from Alabama was expected to get waxed by top GMs such as Seirawan, Gulko, Dzindzichashvili, deFirmian, Benjamin and Browne.

Instead, Rachels pulled off a gigantic upset and became the youngest U.S. Champion since Bobby Fischer. Three years later he retired from competitive chess.

In this wide-ranging, elegantly written, and highly personal memoir, Stuart Rachels passes on his knowledge of chess and offers an entertaining course in chess strategy.

There are chapters on tactics, endings, blunders, middlegames and cheating incidents. Rachels shows his duels against legends such as Kasparov, Anand, Spassky, Ivanchuk, Gelfand and Miles.

Every chess player will find it difficult to put this sparkling book down. As a bonus, it will make you a better player. A complete and accessible course in chess strategy, wrapped in entertaining stories.

Stuart Rachels (b. 1969) is an International Master who retired from chess when he was 23. He works as an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Alabama and has edited new editions of books by his father, the famous philosopher James Rachels.
