Editorial Reviews

Of course, if you love book 1 (and how could you not love the first one?) then you will absolutely want book 2 also! Once again: Karpov’s Strategic Wins (books 1 & 2) are a triumph for Tibor Karolyi, who cements his reputation as one of the world’s finest chess writers, and for Quality Chess – they just keep cracking out great stuff.”

IM Jeremy Silman, jeremysilman.com

 

“As with volume 1, Karpov’s Strategic Wins 2 deserves book of the year accolades. The explanations are clearly written, the analysis is precise and in-depth, the game examples are well chosen, and the production is outstanding. Treat yourself and buy it in hardcover, you won’t regret it!” [6 out of 6 stars awarded]
