This book is a celebration of the fighting spirit of one of the finest chess players to ever represent the Americas — the late Argentine Grandmaster Miguel Najdorf.
There are 202 games in the collection, all with Najdorf playing the Black side of the King's Indian Defense. Again and again, Najdorf demonstrates his fine tactical and positional skills, and his deep understanding of the many varied structures that can arise from this dynamic Black defense. Playing only the Black pieces, Najdorf's achieves an incredible record of 100 wins, 73 draws, and only 29 loses (67.6%)!
Najdorf responds to practically every variation of the King’s Indian Defense, demonstrating by his practice the ideas behind the opening. The games offer many original ideas which deserve further attention, and is a rich field for independent analysis.

"A fine book collecting King Indian Defence games by one of its great pioneers." Another fine book by International Master Minev. This one collects King Indian Defence games by one of its great pioneers, the Polish/Argentinian inmortal Miguel Najdorf. The author provides his usual short, to the point, and instructive comments. In addition, for the great, seminal Taimanov/Najdorf game from Zurich 1953, he quotes David Bronstein's famous notes to it as well as other commenyators. As usual from this publisher, the printing and binding are of great quality.
