Anatoly Karpov presents his best games in an action-packed 4-Volume DVD entitled "Karpov's Best Games". These games were not actually picked by Karpov himself but were picked by a team of 10 Grandmasters led by Informant's GM Matanovic.

Karpov is assisted in the presentation and analysis of his best games by award-winning chess producer and commentator GM Ron Henley.

This DVD is flat-out awesome, as the 12th World Chess Champion elaborates on his most brilliant games with the type of objective honesty that has made him so good at chess.

It is a real treat to get inside the head of one of the best chess players of all time and really be able to pick apart and understand his insanely logical thought processes.

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Anatoly Karpov analyzes not just the games, but exactly what he was thinking at critical junctures</strong> </span>that led to some of the most brilliant maneuvers ever played.

While the opening theory from this DVD is not exactly cutting edge, "Karpov's Best Games" is an excellent training tool as viewers will be instructed on powerful positional/middle-game strategy and impeccable endgame technique.

"Karpov's Best Games" would undoubtedly serve as an excellent addition to any beginner, intermediate, or advanced chess player's training repertoire.

I really enjoyed these Karpov

I really enjoyed these Karpov videos. They give great insight into how grandmasters think, and how great positional players like Karpov also have fantastic tactical vision. His sight of the board is amazing. His personality is also refreshing. He is well adjusted, friendly, modest, and an excellent teacher. These videos show the extreme level of positional understanding and tactical skill needed to reach the highest levels. Very enjoyable and instructive.

A year ago I listened first ti

A year ago I listened first time on a youtube channel Karpov commentating - and believe it or not - I got a "positional enlightenment". Since then I grab everything I can get of him. There is no better way, then learning from the best. And these 4 DVDs are really priceless!


Overview

Anatoly Karpov Best Games – GM Ron Henley (4 Volume Set)

Karpov’s Best Games – 4 Volume Set
Karpov’s Best Games – 4 Volume Set

Anatoly Karpov presents his best games in an action-packed 4-Volume DVD entitled “Karpov’s Best Games”. These games were not actually picked by Karpov himself but were picked by a team of 10 Grandmasters led by Informant’s GM Matanovic.

Karpov is assisted in the presentation and analysis of his best games by award-winning chess producer and commentator GM Ron Henley.

This DVD is flat-out awesome, as the 12th World Chess Champion elaborates on his most brilliant games with the type of objective honesty that has made him so good at chess.

It is a real treat to get inside the head of one of the best chess players of all time and really be able to pick apart and understand his insanely logical thought processes.

Anatoly Karpov analyzes not just the games, but exactly what he was thinking at critical junctures that led to some of the most brilliant maneuvers ever played.

While the opening theory from this DVD is not exactly cutting edge, “Karpov’s Best Games” is an excellent training tool as viewers will be instructed on powerful positional/middle-game strategy and impeccable endgame technique.

“Karpov’s Best Games” would undoubtedly serve as an excellent addition to any beginner, intermediate, or advanced chess player’s training repertoire.

Anatoly Karpov:

Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov is a Russian chess grandmaster and the 12th World Chess Champion. He was the official world champion from 1975 to 1985.

Anatoly played three matches for the title in total against Garry Kasparov between 1986 to 1990, before becoming FIDE World Champion once again when Kasparov broke away from FIDE in 1993.

Karpov then held the title until 1999 when he resigned his title in protest against FIDE’s new world championship rules. For his decades-long standing among the chess players world’s elite, Anatoly Karpov is considered to be one of the greatest players in chess history.

Ron W. Henley:

Ron Henley (born December 5, 1956, in Houston, Texas) is an American chess grandmaster, writer, narrator, and producer of chess videos.

Henley obtained the International Master title in 1980 and the Grandmaster title in 1982. He also appeared on the cover of Chess Life in 1982, representing the United States.

Aside from being a strong player in his own right, GM Henley acted as second, analyst and trainer for Anatoly Karpov in many of his matches in the 1990s.

Is this course for me?

Karpov’s Best Games – 4 Volume Set

In this course, you will be presented with a deep analysis of the best games played by the 12th World Champion, Anatoly Karpov in the decade of 1990.

You’ll learn how Anatoly outplayed Khalifman in 1991 by using the power of the Rook’s penetrating the 7th rank.

As mentioned before, these games were not actually picked by Karpov himself but were picked by a team of 10 Grandmasters led by Informant’s GM Matanovic.

Karpov is assisted in the presentation and analysis of his best games by award-winning chess producer and commentator GM Ron W. Henley.

Whether you wish to improve your game by learning from the very best or are just a fan of chess history, The Karpov Method is unmissable.
