9780923891435: The Bobby Fischer I Knew and Other Stories

Grandmaster Arnold Denker - the Dean of American Chess, U. S. chess champion from 1944 to 1946, was the Runyonesque chronicler of the "guys and dolls" of the New York chess scene of the 1930s, and the man who treated personal friendship as a high art. No one meeting Arnold for the first time, however briefly, could doubt how he played the games of chess and life. You could see it. In his athletic build, in his well-tailored elegance, in how he chomped into one of his favorite, five-inch thick hot pastrami sandwiches at the old Applebaum's on New York's 7th Avenue - or, most impressively, in the way he crossed a street. For Grandmaster Denker did not just cross a street, he attacked it as he would an opponent's king. GM Denker played chess the way he crossed that street. His goal was nearly always to cross the center of the board on the way to his opponent's king. Some of his sorties were wing-and-prayer affairs, and they famously crashed. However, many of his tempestuous attacks, with their slashing assaults against enemy kings, did reach the other side of the board, producing victories and draws against the greatest players of his time.

Descrizione libro Ishi Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 429 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.The Bobby Fischer I knew and other stories is hailed as an instant classic. This Damon-Runyan like work will be around well into the 21st Century. To inform future generations about such greats as Bobby Fischer and World Champion Garry Kasparov as well as the Guys and Dolls of the New York Chess scene during the fabled Golden Era of the 1930s and 1940s. In the introduction, five time U. S. Chess Champion writes that the authors capture some of the most raucous and colorful figures in 20th century chess with a Dickensian precision. Yet there are plenty of hard facts in this book over 300 games and positions many never before published, and which contain interesting opening ideas that have either been forgotten or neglected in the manuals.
