In Smart Chip from St.Petersburg, Genna Sosonko continues his famous chess chronicles. It contains a new series of fascinating and touching portraits of chess players, both famous and forgotten, as well as essays in which Sosonko gives a personal and erudite view on the psychology of the game. Why do old grandmasters - in spite of their experience - play weaker than young ones, what do chess players dream about, what does fame do with a master's ego, and how do chess and religion interact? Smart Chip from St.Petersburg radiates the author's love for and devotion to chess, yet is tempered by objectivity and detachment. It will surprise and enchant not only chess players, but all those who recognize the cultural value of chess.
