Book Description

Modern chess began in 1851 in the London Tournament of the Crystal Palace Exposition. Today, the principles of winning play have been explored and codified: a beginner can learn more about chess in one year, than a master learned a century ago during his entire career.


This book is the first detailed presentation, by a Grand Master, of a complete analysis of the world's best games.


For all who are interested in the fine points, the author has selected the most notable examples of brilliant play and strategy, the attack and the defense.

Among the masters whose best games are to be found in the work are: Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Lasker, Marshall. Morphy, Rubinstein, Steinitz. Tarrasch, Tartakower, and many, many others.


Reuben Fine had not taken chess seriously until late high school days. Yet he became a Grand \faster at the age of twenty-one, and was dual winner of the great AVRO Tournament of 1938.


Dr. Fine was officially ranked - on the basis of twenty years of tournament play - as the Number 1 player of the United States, and a Challenger for the World Championship.


Dr. Fine taught psychology at the College of the City of New York and at Brooklyn College. He and his family lived in New York City, where he practiced psychoanalysis.

In short this provides: A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time About the Author(s) Alexander Delchev is European Grand Prix winner in 2004.
