The ultimate games anthology: every game by the legendary Bobby Fischer up to and including his historic East v West victory against Boris Spassky in Reykjavik 1972. There is also a complete record of all Fischer's tournament and match performances. Many of the games are furnished with deep explanatory notes. This is a book which made publishing history! With contributions by Leonard Barden, Arthur Bisguier, Les Blackstock, Harry Golombek and Paul Keres.
Kevin O'Connell was a former FIDE - World Chess Federation - zone President who was an expert in rules, ratings and archives. He was instrumental in collecting all traceable games by Bobby Fischer up to his conquest of the World Title in 1972. Bob Wade, twice British champion and for decades chief junior coach of the British Chess Federation, was one of the driving forces behind the explosion of chess in England which led to three team silver medals in the chess Olympiads of 1984, 1986 and 1988 and to a British player, Nigel Short, challenging for the world title in 1993.
Wade won the International Master title in his own right, and would doubtless have obtained a Grandmaster title under modern title stipulations.
