Kasparov in LondonGarry Kasparov was in London last week and not only did he give a speech at an international leadership summit, but he also visited the Chess & Bridge shop to promote his new book Kasparov Vs Karpov 1975-1985. ICC's Macauley Peterson spoke with the former world champion and tonight we bring you the video interview in two parts.

Kasparov was one of many famous names who gave a speech at the international leadership summit Leaders in London, before he visited the Chess & Bridge shop of the London Chess Center on December 4th. He was promoting his new book Modern Chess Volume II, Kasparov Vs Karpov 1975-1985 (to be reviewed on this site soon!).

For over an hour Kasparov signed copies of his various books and posed for photos with shop patrons, many of whom lined up early to await his arrival. Afterwards the 13th World Champion spoke with ICC's Macauley Peterson, who posted his video interview tonight at the Chess.FM blog.

The first video starts with shop owner IM Malcolm Pein (who also runs the UK chess magazine Chess and the London Chess Center, sponsor of Mark Crowther's The Week in Chess). Then Kasparov enters the scene, and he talks about his about his Predecessors and K vs. K series, and his future plans. (See ?¢‚Ǩ?ìbonus?¢‚Ǩ? clip below.)
