At the height of the Cold War, eight players contested the right to challenge World Champion Botvinnik. Three players from the Soviet Union (Keres, Petrosian, and Geller) were making suspiciously short draws when playing each other, while one of the favorites, a lanky 19-year-old boy from Brooklyn called Bobby Fischer, openly accused the Soviets of collusion and was later proven right. Jan Timman returns to this clash of giants, describes the course of the tournament and annotates the most important games (including 16 of Fischer?s!) in his usual lucid and instructive style.Reseña del editor:
In 1962, the world renowned 'Candidates Chess Tournament' was held on the tropical island of Curacao. With a gruelling 28-game round-robin format, it was to be one of the fiercest competitions ever seen in the world of chess. "Curacao 1962" tells the astonishing story of this clash of giants in a competition that went on for an exhausting two months, and that was constantly surrounded by an air of drama and intrigue. One of the favourites, Mikhail Tal, was taken to hospital after 21 rounds and had to withdraw. Two of the American competitors came to blows. Another of the favourites, Bobby Fischer, openly accused the Soviets of collusion - and was later proven right! This fascinating volume takes a fresh look at all the games, and tries to get to the bottom of all the accusations and intrigue - which signalled the dramatic end of large round-robin tournaments in competitive chess.
