“This book, a delectable gourmet feast, will educate, excite and entertain with its magnificent fare for persons of differing chess tastes. It is undoubtedly a welcome, and ‘timeless’ addition to chess folklore and literature.” Ian G. Wilkinson, Kingston, Jamaica
FIDE Master Dr. Philip A. Corbin, 7-time National Chess Champion of Barbados, has recently retired from the international chess arena and has candidly annotated his most memorable chess games over a 40-year period from 1970 to 2010. Played in many countries around the world, these games range from fiery friendliness to epic encounters over 12 Olympiads against some of the world's choicest players. Power-packed with arresting anecdotes, this book, the first on chess by a Barbadian, is designed to both educate and entertain the reader with Corbin's 'Calypso Chess'.
