For more than ten years Boris Gelfand has been one of the world’s top-ranking players. Born in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, he has been living for several years now in Rishon-Le-Zion, Israel.

This is the first collection of his best games, which the 35-year-old grandmaster has annotated in great detail, and on a level that is suitable for every club player. The book gives an insight into the thoughts of a professional player, who has been a candidate for the world championship and who is well known as a very effective adviser of many other top players. There is a special chapter on the 8 Îb1 variation in the Grünfeld Defence, on which, like the Sicilian Najdorf, Boris Gelfand is one of the world’s leading experts.
