    Games from Jacob Aagaard's Quality Chess Book The Attacking Manual 1-Basic Principles. These two books are his attempt to teach everything about Attacking Chess. Volume 1 is on Dynamics while Volume 2 is about tactics. His attempt to write a Vukovic type Art of Attack Book with clearer thinking/writing and modern ideas. This is a working book and includes diagrams to study Stoyko style. Entertaining Annotations. Recommended!

  5. Bobby Fischer: Road to the Crown
    In 1971, at the Candidates Matches for the ultimate chess crown, the promising young American grandmaster, Bobby Fischer, made chess history by winning an unprecedented thirteen games in a row with seven extra consecutive games at the Palma de Mallorca Interzonal in 1970, giving him a streak of 20 games in a row and winning every game. Fischer crushed such titans like Mark Taimanov and Bent Larsen with a perfect 6-0 score in both cases. Former world champion "Iron" Tigran Petrosian was the only candidate who was able to put up any resistance, and Fischer crushed even "the Tiger" 6.5-2.5.

  6. Boris Spassky's Best Games
    The best games of Spassky's career.

    Chess is like life. - Boris Spassky

    Which do I prefer? Sex or chess? It depends on the position. - Boris Spassky

    When I am in form, my style is a little bit stubborn, almost brutal. Sometimes I feel a great spirit of fight which drives me on. – Boris Spassky

    After I won the title, I was confronted with the real world. People do not behave naturally anymore - hypocrisy is everywhere. - Boris Spassky

    In my country, at that time, being a champion of chess was like being a King. At that time I was a King … and when you are King you feel a lot of responsibility, but there is nobody there to help you. - Boris Spassky

    I don’t want ever to be champion again. - Boris Spassky

    I enjoy life, sometimes with a good bottle of wine! But don't count on me in tournaments that demand a lot of nervous energy, like the French championship. I am empty; these are not for me anymore. - Boris Spassky

    The Cary Grant of the 64 Squares. - Larry Parr

    Highly cultured with interests in all fields of human knowledge, a man of impeccable comportment, great modesty ... one of the favorites of all chessplayers. - Max Euwe

    When Spassky offers you a piece, you may just as well resign. – Miguel Najdorf

    I believe that judged by his style of play, Spassky is much closer to Alekhine and Tal than to Smyslov, Botvinnik, or Petrosian. This is probably why, when Spassky was in his best form, neither Tal nor Korchnoi could really put up much resistance against him. Spassky could read their play (especially that of Tal) like an open book. – Garry Kasparov

    The universal chess style, characterized by the ability to play quite different types of chess positions, is considered by many to derive from that of Boris Spassky. But I think that the general idea that Spassky has a universal style overlooks the fact that from an early age, Spassky had a bent for sharp, attacking play and a good eye for the initiative. – Garry Kasparov

    It is characteristic that Spassky has never in his life started a game with 1.Nf3. He must have considered it a “semi-move”, real moves being only those that lead to an immediate fight. All of those notorious opening peculiarities (such as avoiding this, that, and the other and preventing the other that and this) seemed repulsive to him. – Garry Kasparov

    Spassky was the first great chess player to use both 1.e4 and 1.d4 with equal success. He managed to employ these moves more harmoniously than any other world champion. – Garry Kasparov

    One of the soundest attacking players ever, Spassky nonetheless took very few chances. Totally dominant until he lost to the irresistible juggernaut known as Bobby Fischer. After that loss, he was never the same. – Bruce Pandolfini

    Spassky sacrifices his pieces with the utmost imperturbability. He can blunder away a piece, and you are never sure whether it's a blunder or a fantastically deep sacrifice. He sits at the board with the same dead expression whether he's mating or being mated. – Bobby Fischer

    Spassky is also a correct player, in this 'classical' aspect he is like Smyslov. But whereas Smyslov is a sedate player, Spassky has an attacking style. He combines the qualities of different chess players. Like Alekhine he values time. He is a very good strategic player. His games are pleasant to watch: he uses the whole board. He manages to deal with everything, grabs space, turns on the pressure here and there... - Vladimir Kramnik

    He was less concerned about the position’s evaluation than about the character of the arising struggle. If he liked the character of the battle, he felt absolutely at home and, as a rule, didn’t fail to outplay his opponents. – Garry Kasparov (on Spassky)
