"Lessons with a Grandmaster" bridges the gap between grandmaster and amateur through a series of chess lessons between teacher, the renowned Grandmaster Boris Gulko, and student Dr. Joel R. Sneed, a professor of psychology and amateur chess player.
Boris Gulko is one of the most distinguished grandmasters in the chess world. He's a former Soviet Champion and has also won the US Championship twice since his immigration in 1986, making him the only chess player ever to have held both the American and Soviet championship titles. He is also one of the few players to hold a plus score against Garry Kasparov. Dr. Joel R. Sneed is a professor of psychology at Queens College of the City University of New York, an amateur chess enthusiast and a student of Boris Gulko's.
Anhand ausgewählter, eigener Schachpartien vermittelt Großmeister Gulko die wesentlichen strategischen Mittel- und Endspielthemen. Ein sehr zu empfehlendes Trainingsbuch auf hohem Niveau. Auch für fortgeschrittene Spieler zu empfehlen.
