  3. Saint Petersburg 1895/96

    Saint Petersburg 1895/96

    $49.95
    With the conclusion of the great Hastings Tournament in September of 1895, it became apparent that a new chess star of the first magnitude had appeared: Harry Nelson Pillsbury. His debut was dramatic and striking, for this virtual unknown had eclipsed the best players of that time with a combination of élan and grace. However, the revelation of a new world-class player brought with it the natural questions of both skeptics and admirers, some demanding verification and others eager to see their hero demonstrate his mastery with further verve. The five highest players at Hastings were invited for the St. Petersburg tournament: Pillsbury, Chigorin, Lasker, Tarrasch and Steinitz. Tarrasch declined, the others accepted. Each of these players had plenty of reason to fight hard for first place in Saint Petersburg 1895/96. It is one of the strongest chess tournaments ever held. Learn More
  4. Ostende 1906

    $34.95
    New York 1889 was the strongest chess tournament ever held up until that time.

    World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953

    $29.95
    Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same. All or almost all grandmasters say there is one book that stands above all others in leading to success over the board. The name of that book is: International Grandmasters Chess Tournament Zurich 1953 by David Bronstein, which is reprinted here under the more commonly used title of World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953.

  28. Bobby Fischer's Conquest of the World Chess Championship

    $25.95
    Reuben Fine was both one of the world's strongest grandmasters of chess and one of the world's leading authorities on psychoanalysis. In this book, he combines the two disciplines. This Fischer-Spassky book is really three books in one. Learn More
  29. The Best of Lone Pine

    The Best of Lone Pine

    $25.95
    The Lone Pine tournaments were the strongest and most prestigious Swiss System tournaments in the world during the ten year period from 1971 to 1980. This RHM Series of high quality chess books was the brain child of Sidney Fried (born 22 June 1919 - died 1 June 1991). Sidney Fried was not a strong player but was an aficionado or big fan of chess. Learn More
  30. Grandmaster Chess

    Grandmaster Chess

    $25.95
    Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today. Learn More
  31. Trophy Chess

    Trophy Chess

    $25.95
    Trophy Chess was one of Bobby Fischer's favorite books. He studied it with great care during his sudden appearance right after this tournament and his rapid rise to the top, culminating in his winning his first of eight US Chess Championships in 1957/58. It is nicely laid out and designed and is easy to read. In his famous ''My 60 Memorable Games'' Fischer later collaborated with Evans, who served as his second during his rise to the world championship and became one of America's best-selling chess authors with over 20 books to his credit. Learn More
  32. Kings of Chess

  33. First Piatigorsky Cup International

    First Piatigorsky Cup International

    $25.95
    To help bring to the United States chess of the highest quality in the world, Mrs. Gregor Piatigorsky and her husband, the world renowned cellist, created the Piatigorsky Cup as a symbol of excellence in chess. Along with the trophy went the finest playing conditions and the highest prizes ever offered for any chess event. For the first time since 1932, a world chess champion appeared in an American tournament when Tigran Petrosian, USSR, joined seven other of the greatest international grandmasters in a month of competition at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

  34. Second Piatigorsky Cup International

    Second Piatigorsky Cup International

  35. London 1980

    London 1980

    $25.95
    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. Learn More
  36. San Antonio 1972

    San Antonio 1972

    $25.95
    San Antonio 1972 was either the strongest chess tournament ever played in the history of the United States or, if not the very strongest, then second only to New York 1924. What makes this book especially great is not merely was it a great tournament with great players, but that the players annotated some of their own games. In this day and age, there are millions of games in the chess databases, but annotated games are increasingly hard to find. Learn More
