About the Author

Since becoming a grandmaster in 1990, Alexei Shirov has firmly established himself amongst the world's leading players. His many tournament successes include first place at Munich in 1993 and equal second with Kasparov behind Karpov at Linares in 1994. His penchant for wild attacking games has made him a great favourite with the chess public, who see him as the natural heir to another Latvian, the former world champion Mikhail Tal.
