Book DescriptionThe Hastings Christmas Congress is the longest traditional of international chess tournaments in which the world's leading players competed. During the pre-war period of 1932-1939, the Annual Hastings tournament was the strongest event on the chess calendar, pitting Britains finest players against a galaxy of chess stars from across the globe.

Among the participants at Hastings prior to World War II were World Champions Alekhine, Capablanca, Euwe and Botvinnik, world championship candidates Florh, Keres, Fine and Reshevsky, and many other notable masters such as Lilienthal, Sultan Khan, Koltanowski and Kashdan.

The 13th Christmas Congress held in 1932-33 was the first Hastings tournament in which all of the game scores were preserved. Complete records of the seven tournaments held prior to World War II, beginning with the famous 1932-33 event, are now made available for the first time. Many of the famous and instructive games which were played at Hastings during the 1932-1939 period are annotated in this book, often by the players themselves. Especially noteworthy is the 1936-1937 tournament, for which no tournament book has previously been published.

    London 1922 is important for all these reasons, but it also served as the setting for the creation of the famous 'London Rules' which would for years govern the way in which prospective challengers to the title would have the right to play the champion. As an added bonus, all fourteen games of the 1921 Capablanca-Lasker title match - with annotations by Capa himself - have been added to this new 21st-century edition.

    Phillips and Drew Kings Chess Tournament Catalog Code: B0079IS
    Phillips and Drew/GLC Kings 1980 was one of the great chess events. London was a desert for international tournament chess from 1948-1973. In 1975 there was the Evening Standard London Chess Fortnight. Although these were fine events and very valuable to English chess; they could not be compared with the events in Hastings and Teesside.
