Tid til aller mest å glede seg over 45 utvalgte partier fra sjakkhistorien, valgt ut og kommentert av sjakkforfatteren Steve Giddins, partier nevnt i spalten "Just Checking" i New In Chess Magazine gjennom 20 år.

Her er det mye skjønnhet og drama, fra to partier med Adolf Anderssen fram til 2020 med Dubov - Karjakin og til og med et parti mellom sjakkprogrammene Leela Zero og Stockfish.

Forlagets egen omtale:

Twenty years ago, New In Chess magazine started its own Proust Questionnaire, entitled Just Checking. In this back page column, chess players and personalities named their favourites, preferences, moods, life mottos and whatnot. One of the questions has always been: What was the most exciting chess game you ever saw?

Chess greats such as Anand, Shirov and Ivanchuk (and probably any other top player you can think of), authors and commentators such as Jeremy Silman, Jennifer Shahade, and Tania Sachdev nominated memorable games.

This anthology presents the 45 most exciting of these most exciting games. Besides inevitable ‘usual suspects’ like Kasparov-Topalov (Wijk aan Zee 1999) or the ‘Immortal’ Anderssen-Kieseritzky (London 1851), you’ll be treated to a wide variety of lesser-known gems. You’ll see Ding Liren revelling in an all-out attack, Ivan Saric juggling a knight and five pawns versus two rooks, and Sergei Radchenko chasing the white king all over the board.

Every game is a showcase of the richness and resourcefulness of chess.
