The dramatic 2016 World Championship match in New York City stunned the chess world, as Sergey Karjakin fought champ Magnus Carlsen to a tie until matters had to be settled in a rapid-play shootout. You’ll learn chess tactics and strategies from the best players in the world, as a top team of writers—including a former world champion—explains the moves.

International Grandmaster Lev Alburt, three-time U.S. champion and former European champion, is one of the most sought-after chess teachers in the world. He lives in New York.

Jon Crumiller, of Princeton, N.J., is a national master and expert in computer chess analysis.

A masterful job – probably the best book on a championship that I have ever seen. — Dylan Loeb McClain, Editor-in-chief for the Organizers of the 2016 WC match, and former New York Times chess columnist

Lev Alburt and Jon Crumiller have combined forces with former world champion Vladimir Kramnik to produce a deeply considered account of Magnus Carlsen’s narrowly successful title defence against Sergei Karjakin in New York last year. The analysis produces the last word on what both did and should have transpired in every game while color photos convey a vivid impression of the visual aspects of the competition. — Grandmaster Raymond Keene OBE (New York Times)

Vladimir Kramnik [provides] the most candid analysis of a championship match ever made by a former champ. — Grandmaster Andy Soltis (New York Post)
