Chess Informant

£40.00

Product description

6 volumes, 30 (1980), 35-36 (1983), 37-38 (1984) and 39 (1985). Paperback . Before the advent of computer databases, Chess Informant was the 'go to' source for games and analysis for chess players. Gary Kasparov explained that the Chess Informant was part of his training and development as a chess player. Chess Informant published two issues per year in 1966–90, three issues per year in 1991–2011[2] and four issues per year since 2012. Each issue offers several hundred games or fragments of games from master play, mostly annotated by the players themselves. A board of leading players selects the best games of each issue, and these are republished in the next issue often with more extensive annotations. Each issue since Chess Informant 5 has included a combinations section with problems from recent play. A similar endings section has also become a standard feature.

Printed in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) by Sahovski Informator.

Books are all in good condition, some sun fading to spines and shelf wear. Last page of volume 30 has a tear. Chipping to top of spine on volume 36. Otherwise, good clean, tight copies.
