Out of stock

This product from Chess Baron: Review the run up to the titanic struggle between Kasparov and Karpov, with commentary by GM Raymond Keene. Before their titanic struggle began in late 1984 which resulted in no fewer than five world championship duels over almost seven years, Gary Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov both participated in key events in London. Kasparov had to overcome Viktor Korchnoi in order to challenge Karpov for the supreme title, while Karpov had to prove himself in a tournament of elite Grandmasters as the prelude to his title defence against the young genius from Baku. This DVD set includes coverage of the critical games as well as sensational archival footage of leading Grandmasters and champions, many of whom are no longer with us. There is fabulous archival footage of the greats such as Kasparov, Karpov, Smyslov, Ribli, Najdorf, Gligoric, Robert Byrne, Miles, Mestel, Speelman, Timman as well as additional commentary by Bob Wade.
