Endgame Virtuoso Anatoly Karpov – Chess Forums –
Endgame Virtuoso Anatoly Karpov Read times. Hi, I agree this is a good book, and I support the recommendations.
But it is also somewhat uneven: I missed some classic Karpov endgames, that might have suited the book better than some of the examples that where used. But that may be simply a matter of taste In the extensively analysed examples, the author tends to rely heavily on allready publicized analysis by others I have been curious what he did find out, while analysing with Leko But that question isnt answered.
Finally, one minor point about the sources listed. Hello, Will have to get this book by the sound of it, found Karolyi’s books on Kasparov excellent. Slightly off content but there is now also an Edition Olm’s Best games book virtuiso Karpov.
This repeats an earlier Best game book by Batsford for 43 games, with almost identical anotation for these games. The added games have generally deeper notes, but emphasis is on verbal explanation rather than long variations. Anyway, this looks like the best Karpov game collection book, previously “Chess at the Top” was my favourite.
Second the above comments. What you know, you know Posts: Up on Cripple Creek Joined: This is rather helpful. I appreciate that the opening and middlegame are unannotated, but I’m interested in studying the endgames that arise from the openings I like to play I count 41 games where Karpov had the Black pieces but the openings and early middlegames are completely unannotated so I’m not sure how much use this would be.
The book focuses entirely on the deeply annotated endgames. I’ve been reading the book. I have the Smyslov one also. If you wanted the same kind of thing but with more analysis then the Karpov book is exactly what you’re looking for. Karolyi’s Karpov book is truely amazing. He has taken Karpov’s endgames and analyzed them in more depth than Karpov ever bothered to do.
I believe that this is one of the best and most instructive chess books ever written.

Karolyi talks about how when he was a trainer for Leko that the main thing that they worked on in the endgame was to go through many of Karpov’s endgames. All of Karolyi’s book are great. I have all but the second Kasparov book now.
I have Vasily Smyslov: Endgame Virtuoso by Smyslov. I know, what a surprise! It just seems wrong to have any other book called “endgame virtuoso”, even if it is by and about an snatoly specialist. By the way, although I have read and still occasionally use Smyslov’s endgame book, I was a bit disappointed by it.
The examples are generally excellent, but Smyslov didn’t provide enough analysis for my money. I had hoped for a classic and just got a good book. Has anyone seen this New in Chess book from Tibor Karolyi? Apparently it covers critical games from Karpov’s career.
I would imagine that the games themselves would be very instructive, but are the comments good? Is this worth picking up? Please Login or Register. Discussion forum for ChessPublishing.
What percentage of the games have Karpov as Black? I’m curious because my repertoire with Black is very similar to Karpov’s so the book could be even more useful
