    "One of my recent re-discoveries on a visit to the attic was "Sicilian Love", not, as some may have believed, an old Barbara Cartland but a wonderful hardcover book about a Chess Tournament in Buenos Aires in 1994.

    Well annotated books of great tournaments, e.g. London 1922, New York 1924 and Zurich 1953, used to be eagerly anticipated works of chess literature, but with an increasing number of tournaments, grandmasters, and most recently the immediate availability of games via the Internet, they are almost non-existent nowadays.

    Buenos Aires 1994 was also unusual in a number of other ways: firstly it was held as a 60th birthday celebration for Lev Polugayevsky, and secondly it was a themed tournament, every game was an Open Sicilian (Polugayevsky's favourite opening).

    Salov, a late replacement when Polugayevsky himself was unable to compete following an operation, won the double round tournament ahead a field of marvellous players: Anand, Ivanchuk, Polgar, Karpov, Kamsky, Shirov and Ljubojevic.

    The book contains photographs, sketches, a discussion of 10 memorable Sicilians by Polugayesky, an interview with him, a history of the Sicilian Defence by French author Christophe Gueneau, a fascinating tournament report, and then 130 pages dedicated to the games with notes by Jeroen Piket. It's a veritable bible for anyone thinking about playing the opening. "

    På svenska: En innbundet bok på 416 sider med bare 25 partier av og med Robert Hübner. Den tyske superstormesteren er berømt for sine utrolig grundige partikommentarer, og her er en fin samling av 25 utvalgte partier som han selv spilte i tidsrommet fra 1967 til 85. Dette er selvfølgelig utrolig lærerikt stoff og i seg selv fascinerende med de voldsomme analysene som det ikke er obligatorisk å spille gjennom i sin helhet! Hübner har ellers vært kjent som den sympatiske og kjempesterke spilleren med de relativt dårlige konkurransenervene. Han ble to ganger eliminert i kandidatmatchene om VM med minst mulige margin, da nervene slo krøll på seg i møtene med henholdsvis Tigran Petrosjan og Viktor Kortsjnoj.


    25 games, 1967-1985
