Chess The Hard Way

Product Code: B0258IS

Chess The Hard Way

Alternative Views:


"Chess the Hard Way" is the autobiography of Daniel Abraham Yanofsky, who was not only Canada's first chess grandmaster buit was Canada's only grandmaster until the modern era. His career is remarkable. He was from a remote Indian town in Central Canada where there were no chess masters. Almost invariably, strong chess players only develop in places where there are strong players.


Almost all chess grandmasters have come from the major population centers such as New York, St. Petersburg and Moscow. The few exceptions are rare cases of genius, Carlos Torre from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico and Sultan Khan from India at a time when India had no chess masters. Daniel Yanofsky falls into his categy of genuis, because he appears to have been almost entirely self taught.
