INSTRUCTIVE MODERN CHESS MASTERPIECES - new enlarged edition (Igor Stohl)

448 pages (248 mm by 172 mm)

Forthcoming January 2009

62 brilliant games involving the best players in the world, with notes by one of the top annotators.

Igor Stohl has selected 62 outstanding games from recent years and analysed them in painstaking depth. Here he presents his findings to chess enthusiasts, who will find the games entertaining and the annotations both instructive and illuminating. Stohl is an outstanding theoretical expert, so the opening phase of each game reads like a lesson in the key strategic aspects of the opening chosen, with a critical survey of modern trends. The middlegame is dissected and the critical decisions subjected to keen scrutiny - we are invited inside Stohl's laboratory to join him in the quest for the truth. The endgame phase, if reached, is handled with similar erudition, with insights into the grandmaster's approach to questions of technique. Following each game there is a discussion of the most important lessons to be learned.

Igor Stohl is a well-known grandmaster from Slovakia. He plays in several national leagues and is a noted opening theoretician. His thorough annotations frequently appear in Ceskoslovensky Sach, Informator and ChessBase Magazine. The first edition of Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces won the United States Chess Federation Cramer Award for Best Book. His follow-up was a monumental two-volume work, Garry Kasparov's Greatest Chess Games: see Garry Kasparov's Greatest Chess Games, volume 1 and Garry Kasparov's Greatest Chess Games, volume 2

Reviews of the first edition:

"50 outstanding games... I enthusiastically recommend this work to players graded circa 2000 and higher and suggest the contents are best studied using two boards - one set to follow the actual game score and another for the detailed and intricate notes" - J J Walsh, IRISH TIMES

"In a world in which computer-generated books on the opening proliferate at an alarming rate, it is a pleasant surprise to encounter a collection such as this which owes almost everything to the author" - Alan Sutton, EN PASSANT

"There is a nice blend of textual explanation and comprehensive variations" - Richard Palliser, BCF WEB SITE

"Stohl scores over earlier annotations with a beguiling blend of deep analysis and adroit commentary" - John Saunders, BCM

"…hugely impressive. The opening stage is replete with references to other relevant games, and the middle-games and endgames are well explained, in words as well as variations" - Phil Adams, THE MANCHESTER CHESS SCENE, THE 3 CS

"Stohl's mammoth 320-page work continues the standard of excellence that GAMBIT is already renowned for, as the dedicated Slovakian author provides the reader with 50 top-quality games analysed and explained with exceptional thoroughness and clarity. A very wide spectrum of openings is covered by Stohl's chosen masterpieces.." - GM Paul Motwani, THE SCOTSMAN

"Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces ... is clearly a labour of love. One could safely guess that the Slovak GM has dedicated one year of his life to this book. Stohl could have probably made more money flipping burgers at McDonalds, but he has instead chosen to give us an outstanding work.... The fifty games in this book are heavily annotated, typically averaging six pages each. Stohl has chosen very tactical games rich in content. The central thesis of his book is the emphasis on dynamic play in modern chess, that more and more top players are breaking the 'so called' traditional rules of chess to create winning chances." - John Donaldson, INSIDE CHESS ONLINE

"If you were stranded on a desert island this is one book you'll wish to have packed" - Mark Donlan, CHESS HORIZONS

"This is an outstandingly thorough and insightful book. I have greatly enjoyed playing through some of the 50 deeply annotated games and learned a fair amount in the process, including various insights in the opening phase in which Stohl is a renowned expert... I heartily recommend it" - GM Jonathan Rowson

"Stohl devotes over six pages to each game... a very high quality general games collection. Highly recommended" - Paul Dunn, AUSTRALIAN CHESS FORUM

"A book of the highest quality. Chessfriends who approach a chessboard or a chess program with patience, love of detail and perserverance will have a lot of fun with the book." - Helmut Conrady

"All the games have a high entertainment value and have instructive and informative comments." - Jerzy Konikowski, Fernschach

"If you have the leisure, you will enjoy the book and gain benefit from it. Stohl is able to make the games of the professionals comprehensible." - KARL
