This chapter is dedicated to Anatoli Yevgenyevich Karpov. My favourite chess player has always been the twelfth world champion Anatoly Yevgenyevich "Tolya" Karpov, world champion between 1975-1985.
The best chess writers in my opinion are at the moment Jan Timman, Mark Dvoretsky and Garry Kasparov. Kasparov´s book "Garry Kasparov on My Great predecessors / On Modern Chess" is warmly recommended. Alexei Shirov's "Fire on Board" and Kramnik´s and Damsky´s "Kramnik: My life and games" ovat also excellent books. J.E. Littlewood´s book "How to play the middle game in chess" is a classic. Judit Polgar´s book "How I beat Fiscer´s record Teaches Chess 1" is also very good.
A good chess column is in my opinion Chess Cafe.
The following game was played in the world chess championship match in Seville between Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov. The match ended 12-12, and Kasparov kept the world champion titeln.
