My philosophy of chess was developed largely under the influence of the former world champion, Mikhail Botvinnik Moiseiévich. I'm sure the five years I studied in the School (1973-1978) were instrumental in my development as a chess player and determined the direction of my further progress. Especially important was the assimilation of the main axiom Mikhail Moiseiévich, regarding the need to conduct a thorough analysis of the games themselves.
Strictly observing this rule, over the years I've come to realize that it provides the foundation for continued development in the chess master. However, this view is not unanimous. So in recent times due to the incessant growth of information and the number of chess events are increasingly qualifying as "superfluous" determined research. But can the future development of chess ignore scientific study?
The first year of my career as an adult chess well be considered as the beginning of my experience as a commentator, although this was restricted to my own games. But after the start in Baku Post Shajmaty, my journalistic work became more regular (during the period 1981-1984 all the tournaments I participated included).
It is clear that the enormous amount of work in the commentary of heading inevitably to some analytical errors. In addition, the rapid development of the theory of openings introduces corrections. Therefore, after some time interval, virtually any comment needs, if not written back, at least to be completed and reviewed.
This book has been written on this principle. In general, it has left intact the original comment, ie, that which was written immediately after the tournament, without changes (except for minor corrections); but in cases where the original comment is in need of an overview or explanation, have added new comments in a different font (italic) to include essentially the result of contemporary analysis.
So, this double comment, though unusual, gives a clear impression of the errors, the new evaluations and changes in the views of the author during the interim period. I believe that, thanks to this approach, the book can be used effectively for teaching purposes (the top players).
Finally, I would like to thank all those who have helped in the comilación and rapid publication of the book.
