GM Pal Benko er en sjakklegende. En utfordrer for VM-tittelen, en innovatør av mange moderne åpningssystemer, en høyt skattet problemkomponist, og en farsfigur til sin nære venn Bobby Fischer. Pal Benko har spilt og beseiret de fleste av de beste spillerne de siste femti årene.

Denne fantastiske samlingen av 138 kommenterte partier, er underholdende, opplysende og lærerikt. Partiene og kommentarene blir bragt til liv av Pal Benkos memoarer i hans tidlige år i et krigsherjet Ungarn hvor han tar leseren inn i en verden av fattigdom, kaos, smerte, og til slutt personlig triumf.

Pal Benko: My Life, Games and Compositions er en feiring av Benkos kreative arv: Intervjuer med andre spillere gir videre innsikt i Benkos natur. En massiv undersøkelse av Benkos åpninger (av den berømte forfatteren John Watson) viser oss omfanget av Benkos teoretiske bidrag til spillet.

Beskrivelse

Fra forlagets beskrivelse av boken (engelsk):

Six years in the making, this book by Pal Benko and Jeremy Silman is now available. With an opening survey by John Watson, a foreword by Susan Polgar, 138 deeply annotated games, 100 B&W photos, 300 compositions, an index of names and index of openings, the book weighs in at three-and-a-half pounds (668 pages).

Grandmaster Pal Benko is a chess legend. A challenger for the World Championship, an innovator of many modern opening systems, a problem composer par excellence, and a father figure to his close friend Bobby Fischer, Benko has played and defeated most of the top players of the last fifty years.

This amazing collection of 138 deeply annotated games—carefully prepared to be entertaining, enlightening, and instructive—is brought to life by Pal Benko’s memoirs of his early years in war-torn Hungary where he takes the reader into a world of poverty, chaos, pain, and ultimately, personal triumph.

His insights into famous grandmasters transform their names into real people with substance and personality, and his reminiscences of legendary tournaments take us on a journey of chess history unlike anything that’s been published before.

Pal Benko: My Life, Games and Compositions is a celebration of this great man’s creative legacy: Interviews with other players offer further insights into Benko’s nature. A massive survey of Benko’s openings (by famed author John Watson) shows us the scope of Benko’s theoretical contributions to the game.

Photos abound, and 300 of Benko’s chess compositions allow lovers of the game to become intimately acquainted with a strikingly beautiful aspect of chess that most have overlooked.

This highly entertaining and instructive book gives competitors who wish to improve their playing strength a dynamic, fun way to deepen their knowledge and understanding.
