Garry Kasparov on Garry Kasparov: Part II is the second volume in a major three-volume series made unique by the fact that it records the greatest chess battles played by the greatest chessplayer of all-time. Kasparov's series of historical volumes have received great critical and public acclaim for their rigorous analysis and comprehensive detail regarding the developments in chess that occurred both on and off the board.

Part I of this series saw Kasparov emerging as a huge talent and eventually toppling his great rival Anatoly Karpov to gain the world title.

This period also saw Kasparov achieve spectacular results in both individual and team events. Kasparov won the board gold medal in three Olympiads Dubai , Thessaloniki and Manila During the late s and early s Kasparov emphasized his huge superiority over his rivals.

Despite generally adopting an uncompromising, double-edged attacking style he almost never lost. The games in this volume feature many masterpieces of controlled aggression played against the world's absolute best. The first two volumes in this series saw Kasparov emerging as a huge talent, toppling his great rival Anatoly Karpov and then defending the World Championship title on three occasions.

This third volume focuses on the final 12 years of Kasparov's career up until his retirement from full-time chess in It is essential for each side to pay attention to the central pawn formation and to try to maintain a pawn prepond- erance. It sometimes happens that only one pawn remains in the centre. This creates new problems, for instance, how to occupy an outpost in the centre which often permits the pieces to be used to advantage White has a strong hold on I and superiority to be gained the d5 square, since Black is over the opponent.

Lesson 5: How to Gain Space Since chess is played on a by the c- and f-files, since the limited area of the 64 squares best positions for the pieces of the chessboard, the are situated there. At the stan of the game White and Black control the same space.

But as a rule any move in the open- ing pursues the idea of gain- ing control over a large number of squares, especially in the opponent's territory. Pawns, pressing the oppon- ent's pieces and giving their own pieces freedom to manoeuvre, play the main role in the seizure of space.

But the movement of pawns must necessarily be accompanied by the support of pieces, otherwise the army of pawns w i l l soon p e r i s h. With the support of further moves. In modern chess a reliable strategic method to combat such pawn chains is an immediate pawn counter- attack most often with the pieces' support with the aim of preventing the chain's further movement or at least to make use of it by pawn exchanges to open lines for one's own pieces. It is followed Under the protection of the by a pawn assault on the pawn trident d4-e5-f4 the opposing pawns with the aim White pieces have many of breaking the chain into squares for manoeuvring and separate sections, or, as chess can be easily relocated to any players say, 'islands'.

Your far advanced 33 a3 Bd8 pawn chain could be halted The last opportunity for and destroyed, and your resistance was to impede the opponent's pieces could burst advance of the c-pawn by through the breaches formed, sacrificing rook for bishop - and then any result is possible. Lesson 6: Pawn Structures Though the pawns are the weakest pieces they often determine the progress of a game and its outcome. If one side has an advantage of two or three pawns, more often than not this advantage is sufficient to win.

The situation is more complex when the number of pawns is the same. Then the position evaluation 1 ads!! Now the d5- and e5-pawns Before the game starts the become the decisive factor.

Wc8 on their original squares. While advancing forward they support each other and restrict the mobility of the opponent's pieces. Experienced chess players often make material sacrifices in order to get a mobile, flexible line of pawns protecting each other, as in the following diagram.

Lesson 7: Dynamism and Initiative The rules of chess are similar 1 e4 c5 to those of any other sport, - 2 Qi3 d6 and not only sport: In my 7 g5 Qfd7 opinion, dynamism is the 8 h4 strengthening of the positions Some results of the opening of one's pieces with each move are evident.

White has limited and the threatening of the the opponent's pieces on the opponent's pieces. To make king's flank to the back two the moves successful they have ranks with the knight on d7 to fall within the rules of the blocking the bishop on c8 and game and to be based on a even the queen, to some solid tactical foundation.

To illustrate the principles of active play let us analyse a game by the then world champion Ana toly Karpov. Dynamism and Initiative 31 This is a very interesting and active idea which leads to a balanced deployment of the pieces. Karpov places his queen on the e-file where it will not be in the way of the rook on d l and at the same time creates combinational threats. The queen does not obstruct the bishop on fl which is about to go to h3 with a latter Axe6.

As you can see, each White move is effective and Black tries to force the builds up pressure. He is logical in his 11 b5 advance but his strategy lacks The opponent's response is a solid base, and his pieces are of a forced nature. Black is poorly placed. How can White forced back and tries to find take advantage of these weak some remedy to prevent White points? It is, however, late in This is a most effective the game, and for this reason move as the bishop on d4 Black's latest move carries becomes powerful and the more despair than justfied White queen joins the fray, action.

Bg8 This move is very 16 ed Wc7 unpleasant for Black, as a 17 I f 6. As there is a threat bishops thus eliminating the of Ag4 White has no danger to c2. Black must try Pxh3 to -reduce White's attacking 21 Exh3 Hc8 potential.

Black is unable to stop from getting into play. PB 23 add3 Rook manoeuvresalong the third rank are among the champion's favourite tactics. In this case his move not only precedes the queen exchange but also serves the purpose of improving the co-ordination of the White pieces.

The co- ordination of the pieces is a very important factor which in effect determines the strength 20 Ah3 of a chess player. The ability to The desire to restrict the co-ordinate the moves of each opponent's counterplay is piece and of each pawn in such very typical of the world a way that they act together in champion's style.

White could a single plan and at the same have played 20 fe without any time protect each other is a risk of Zc8 because of 2 1 great art. Hh2 a5 22 Wxa6 Wxa6 23 Here again both rooks on bxa6.

Wb7 on the strength of the king's 39 b3 Ee6 defences. In this case the Black 40 Rgl! Therefore, try t o be energetic and then you will truly enjoy the benefits. Lesson 8: Avoiding Disaster in the Opening Having barely learned the battle and deploy troops basics of the game, every chess accordingly in order to player will notice that moves commit them in due time and in the opening, when almost in the most favourable all pieces are still on the board, sequence.

It is for this reason most often predetermine the that every player who directs course of the game and in the actions of his wooden some cases its outcome. More troops ought to know the often than not a chess player basics of the game in the who has mastered the basics opening.

This is a the history of chess and their result of a poor knowledge of analysis has helped develop all the theory of openings and a the nuances of opening lack of basic skills in playing strategy.

I will equipment of the troops but confine myself to describing also on the ability of the some general principles of the commanders to foresee the opening and how to avoid contours of the forthcoming disaster. It is for this reason The opening is won by the that e4 is stronger and more player who brings major pieces logical than e3. I want to stress into play faster. Let us take a simple The second White move 2 example.

The 3 wf3 kc5 experience of previous gener- 4 W x f l mate ations gives us the best proced- ure for advancing one's pieces - first the pawns advance to the centre, then the knights move in, followed by the bishops and only later the heavy pieces - the rooks and the queens.

In our case the bishop jumped out to a powerful position without regard to a possible response from Black Nevertheless, the locations on d3, e2, b5 or b3. Chess is a game of logic and The first move is poor.

We a combination of a timid 1 e3 have stated in one of our and an aggressive 2 Pc4 is previous lessons how important illogical and for this reason it is to occupy the centre of the should be punished.

Black board with one's pawns. This replied with It is true that real threat from the opponent. Q c 6 accords with the You can see how much can be of rapid develop- discovered during a careful ment of the pieces but it does analysis of a very brief game create problems for White full of mutual errors.

Morphy ered it. Had Black reacted New York correctly with Furthermore, by 2 f4 occupying 0, the queen This old and romantic robbed his king's knight of a opening, which has acquired a good square for its actions and beautiful name 'The King's the latter has no choice but to Gambit', often resolves the occupy a passive position on outcome of the battle by a e2 or move to h3, thus staying rapid advance of pieces.

The most powerful the best defence here is a chess piece, the queen, should counterattack. And this was not move into the fray hastily, clearly demonstrated by the otherwise the opponent's talented American chess minor pieces might pursue it player Paul Morphy.

As for 2. Black's The fact is that Black h a v e good prospective has not taken into account a squares. Still having a 8 Ae2 9 Ad2 Qxd2 10 material advantage, White Oxd2 Ag4, it is not easy for allows the opponent to White to activate his pieces.

It seems that after 12 particular move is destructive dc?! It was preferable to White. And this is indeed what back and forth in his camp, happens. The threats on the e- feeling the approach of file have forced White to disaster. Now those who want to develop another minor combination their attacking skills to put follows which transforms the aside this book and to try to vertical pin into a more find independently Black's hazardous, diagonal one.

Lesson 9: Neglecting Opening Principles In our last lesson we learned which occurs up in the old and that domination in the centre very romantic Italian game: Modern methods of defence are those protected by struggle in the opening, based the king alone.

Qxe4 opening systems. Neglecting Opening Principles 41 l x d 5 Black has taken two enemy pawns but lags behind in development. The punishment for such violations of opening rules usually follows very This is the hour of reckon- swiftly and savagely.

You should not think, Black is lost no matter how he however, that this experience defends.

The of the most complex systems principle defines the most in modern theory, the Ruy important development fact- Lopez 1 e4 e5 2 Qf3 Qc6 3 ors which hold true, no matter Ab5 how the opening develops. One must remember that the pieces are brought out so as to achieve a definite advantage in the middle game, which is when the main events will take place. This frequently start off. Both sides is only natural, since have seemingly tried to keep domination in the centre pace in development, but meaning not just that pawns White has clearly managed to occupy the centre squares, but develop to a greater extent.

Of course, Black's operate in the middle game. I example.

Attempts t o neglected development. An instructive moment. White, carried away with developing his own pieces, This attempt at counter- does not consider Black's attack conceals many dangers problems and misses the move for both sides and demands a 9 d5! White would then have had a free game and could have looked confidently to the future. Black would be forced to Xc8 reconcile himself to the Now the exchange cd is no existence of the White pawn longer possible.

We must bluntly say that this is a move of the 'wait and see' variety. The bishop on e3 is placed most awkwardly, as it hampers White's pieces and.

From his previous play, central knight. It has now! White should logically have become obvious that White is i continued with Ab2 and We2, in serious trouble. First of all, and then, depending o n what Black prevails in the centre. We may recall that all this'could have been avoided had White merely placed his bishop on b2 - the most natural spot for it in the present position!

This example is a vivid illustration of how the inappropriate placing of a single piece can affect the solidity of the entire position. The game is over. The e5 White tries to control the e5 pawn will go, and Black's square too late and at the powerful central pawns, wrong moment!

It would supported by two long-range have been wiser to switch to bishops, will soon force White defence and try to simplify the to resign.

We have undermining strategy. The Art of Planning Before embarking on an real conditions for mating the activity, almost every person, opponent's king.

The mate is in order to achieve his object, the ultimate and most desired contemplates what operations object of the game, and 'play he will have to perform and for mate from the first move' is figures out the best sequence a wish to satisfy this desire. Firstly, you develop your I firmlybelieve that chess is, pieces according to a certain to a certain extent, a model of pattern to achieve some life, and therefore planning is superiority in a certain area of an essential feature of this the chessboard.

Then you increase your What is planning in a chess pressure in order to obtain game? It is a well-considered concrete positional o r order of operations aimed at material advantages in the achieving a definite and middlegame. Some amateur may say play in a free-wheeling fashion '1 w a n t t o checkmate, either; he also plays according therefore I play for a mate to a plan, taking into account from the very start.

So I play alI dangers, threats and according to a plan. In the trying above all to get rid of initial position there are no the weaknesses. Therefore, it is important to be able to analyse the fighting formations of both sides and to understand all the subtleties of the position. The ability to build up a plan and to carry it out consistently on the board is one of the most attractive aspects of chess; sometimes it is more gratifying than, say, a direct attack on the enemy's king.

And if you remember that quite often chess players camouflage their This is one of the oldest intentions by employing variations of the Ruy Lopez.

Serious and continuing c2-c3 and d2-d4 small mistakes are inevitable. Black ordinarily tries to learn from your mistakes than hold the outpost on e5 by to do without any plan playing Qg8-e7-g6 followed whatsoever. It is also possible to To illustrate this, let us build up another defensive consider t h e following formation: Both sides seem to be ready for slow positional man- A.
