A Truly Extraordinary Tournament One of the most remarkable and famous chess tournaments ever took place in New York City in March and April 1924. It had a narrative that is still striking today: Three world champions undisputed world champions, mind you fulfilling their destiny. The stunning performance of the 55-year-old former world champion Emanuel Lasker. The seemingly invincible reigning Josť Capablanca suffering his first loss in eight years. And all 110 tournament games deeply annotated by future world champion Alexander Alekhine. The tournament book that Alekhine produced became the stuff of legend. He provides real analysis, and with words, not just moves. He imbues the book with personality, on the one hand ruthlessly objective, even with his own mistakes, on the other, candidly subjective. This is a modern 21st Century Edition of Alekhine s classic, using figurine algebraic notation, adding many more diagrams, but preserving the original, masterful text and annotations, including Alekhine s fascinating overview of the opening theory at that time.

About the Author:

Alexander Alekhine, the 4th world chess champion, was born in Moscow in 1892. He rose quickly through the ranks of the chess world and by 1922 he ranked among the top three or four in the world. He became world champion in 1927, defeating Jose Capablanca in a match in Buenos Aires. As a chess writer, his books included the tournament books of New York 1924 and Nottingham 1936, both considered classics. He briefly lost the title to the Dutchman Max Euwe in 1935, but won it back in 1937. He died in Portugal in 1946 while still holding the title.
