Apparently the Telegraph is not giving the addresses to anyone else. The relavent onn are given below. A great pile of books from the post awaited me upon my return home to Athens after idyllic summer holidays.

The harsh fate of most was to be cursorily examined and then consigned to the shelves, rarely, if ever, to be opened again.

It is probably the most enjoyable chess book I have ever read. Here is a master artist deftly painting the giant canvas of gerat history with broad and powerful brush-strokes. The fact there was scarcely a game that I did not recognise, did not in any way detract from the pleasure: The oracular pronouncements of this synthesis of genius plus machine are awesome. Misconceptions, which in some cases have persisted for decades, are brutally exposed.

Perhaps even more interesting are Garry’s piercingly perceptive portraits of the main protagonists. He has his personal favourites — Alekhine in particular — but does not let this unduly cloud his assessment of their contributions predecessore the game. Quibblers have already pointed out that the book lacks a bibliography, although I understand this omission will be rectified in the final volume.


Less intelligible are the stones cast in the direction of Dimitry Plisetsky, Kasparov’s researcher, as though Winston Churchill’s Nobel prize-winning History yarry the Second World War, in six volumes, suffered in some way from not being entirely the product of one garrh labours.

You can obviously never satisfy everyone. But never mind the whingers — this is truly a magnificent work. No jokes this week because this is serious. The 56th Russian Championship is on in Krasnoyarsk. Believe it or not, that is a city of about a million people somewhere in Siberia. It’s also predecessora special anniversary in Krasnoyarsk because years ago the city was founded by a Muscovite nobleman called Andrey Dubensky.

Inhe arrived there with about three hundred Cossacks and set up a “Red Fort” to predecsssors against Eastern invaders. So they are having a Russian chess championship to celebrate. The nights can be long in Siberia and this game probably provided some entertainment. In this DVD the author answers how to realize an advantage, considering both the psychological aspects of predecdssors realisation of an advantage and the technical methods. You can read the full review in Nigel’s Sunday Telegraph column.
