Book DescriptionThe Famous Tournament Book by the Second World Chess Champion.

In February 1909, nineteen of the world's best chessplayers gathered in St. Petersburg to play in one of the most famous tournaments in chess history. World Champion Emanuel Lasker topped the list of competitors, which also included Akiva Rubinstein, considered by many to be Lasker's likely successor, Carl Schlecter, who would play one of the most infamous matches against Lasker a year later, and many other of the "greats" of the era: Spielmann, Bernstein, Teichmann, Mieses and Tartakower, to name but a few.

This is the official tournament book, available for the first time in English in algebraic notation. It was written by Emanuel Lasker. He annotated all 175 games in the clear, instructive style that would become his trademark.

The great 1909 International Chess Congress has long since taken its place among the greatest chess tournaments of all time. Now you may experience this 21st-century edition of Lasker's terrific tournament book.

The stunning performance of the 55-year-old former world champion Emanuel Lasker. The seemingly invincible reigning world champion Jose Capablanca suffering his first loss in eight years. And all 110 tournament games deeply annotated by future world champion Alexander Alekhine.

  • London 1922 & Capablanca-Lasker 1921
    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.

  • New York 1927
    Alekhine's Controversial Masterpiece Finally in English! For decades, Alexander Alekhine's account of New York 1927 was at the top of the list of works that should have been rendered into English but unaccountably were not. Not only do you have one of the greatest annotators of all time rendering some brilliant analysis, but he melds it with an exceptional agenda, an anti-Capablanca agenda.
