New York and Lyons: the two arenas of the last contest for the World Chess Championship between the two greatest names in chess of the day. The Champion: charismatic Garry Kasparov, the youngest ever holder

of the title and possibly the greatest player in history. The Challenger: Anatoly Karpov, World Champion for 11 years before Kasparov took his crown, and the record breaking winner of over 80 top dass tournaments.

Already, these two giants of the chessboard had faced each other arecord 120 times in World Championship play, from the controversial unfinished marathon of 1984-5 to the nail-biting tied contest of 1987. Now they met once more, and in this detailed account Grandmaster Raymond Keene, one of the world's foremost chess writers, describes the action both on and off the board. Every game is analysed in depth, allowing you to follow the match exactly as it happened. It's the next best thing to being there! Raymond Keene is a Britisn Chess Champion, and the [irst British Player to achieve a FIDE (World Chess Federation) Grandmaster norm. He was awarded the OBE [or services to chess in 1985. He is Chess Correspondent of The Times, The Sunday Times, The Spectator, and The International Herald Tribune. He is a prolitte author of chess books, several of wh ich are classics of the genre. He has organised three World Chess Championships.
