"Endgame Virtuoso, Anatoly Karpov" by 2 authors
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ

A great book:

"Endgame Virtuoso, Anatoly Karpov", by Tibor Karolyi and Nick Aplin. Published (2007) by "New In Chess," ISBN #: 978-90-5691-202-4. (Flex cover, 358 pages.)

March 21st, 2014: I have had this book for sometime, it is more than excellent! (I was sent a copy by NIC to review ... this was before it was even officially released.)

A. Karpov is truly ... An Endgame Virtuoso, perhaps one of the greatest of all time! (Studying these games - and this book - has got to make you a better endgame player!!!!!)

Anyway, I thought that I would make a game collection out of it ...

Some the these games do NOT appear to be in ChessBase! See (I check the online DB every single time.) There is no excuse for this either - I submitted all of these games to CB just shortly after this book came out.)
