Larry Kaufman

224 Pages

New in Chess


Larry Kaufman is a name very familiar in the computer chess community and by extension the correspondence chess community as well. 

Following on from his very useful opening books, Here we have an Autobiography of sorts, broken down broadly into sections around OTB and Chess Engines.  I found the book a really compelling read and probably enjoyed this most of any chess book I have gone through in the last few years. There is a nice section on where Larry believes Chess and Correspondence Chess in particular will develop. Whilst I dont agree with all his thoughts here, it is a fascinating insight into one of the longest serving members of the community!
