The Exchange Sacrifice According to Tigran Petrosian

Libro en inglés


Tigran Petrosian, el noveno campeón del mundo, fue uno de los pensadores más profundos nunca vistos en el mundo del ajedrez. Su manejo de posiciones complejas es legendario.
Con esta visión e intuición excepcional, Petrosian se convirtió gradualmente, en uno de los mayores exponentes en lo referente a los sacrificios de calidad y quizás el mayor protagonista en los sacrificios de calidad posicionales.
El aclamado autor, Vassilios Kotronias, nos ofrece una espléndida colección de partidas de Petrosian, mostrando cómo trabaja el artista. 36 partidas profundamente anotadas en los que se ponen bajo el microscopio analítico los sacrificios de Petrosian.


Tigran Petrosian, the ninth world chess champion, was one of the deepest thinkers the chess world has ever seen. His handling of complex positions was legendary.

With his rare strategic feeling and exceptional vision, Petrosian gradually became one of the top exponents of the art of the exchange sacrifice, and perhaps the leading protagonist for the positional exchange sacrifice.

Acclaimed author Vassilios Kotronias has assembled a splendid collection of Petrosian’s games, exemplifying the artist at work. The Greek grandmaster presents 36 games – all deeply annotated – in which he puts the Tiger’s signature sacrifice under the analytical microscope. And each game has an exceptional introduction putting it into historical perspective.

As noted by American grandmaster Alex Fishbein in the Foreword:
You will find your share of positional exchange sacrifices here. But you will also see exchanges sacrificed in the midst of a crushing attack. You will see sacrifices born of desperation, to save a bad ending. You will see correct and incorrect sacrifices. In fact, Tigran Petrosian will lose some games here. This is real life; there are mistakes, and the author explains it all to you.

Vassilios Kotronias has brought you the material in a way that will enhance your appreciation of chess as an art form. He has also offered you practical lessons you can use in your own chess endeavors.

You are already familiar with the exchange sacrifice as an art form. Now enjoy the brilliant games of its greatest artist, Tigran Petrosian.
