Timman's Selected Games: Chess the Adventurous Way

GM Jan Timman (1994). "It is not always the games with the best chess that leave behind the strongest memories. On the contrary, sometimes a break in the logical line of thought in a game results in a maze of chaotic complications and is the ingredient which gives the game its distinctive flavor. Occasionally, a dramatic defeat is more interesting than a straightforward victory. This selection of 80 games gives a picture of the fighting chess I have always championed. Many of these date from the period 1985-1990, when I was the only player from outside the then Soviet Union who consistently challenged the Soviet hegemony in the world championship cycle and the race for the world championship"-author. Deep, deep annotations, 254 pages, paperback, algebraic.
