Chess Heritage of A.A. Alekhine - VOLUME 2 - RUSSIAN EDITION

Product Code: B0213IS

img

THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN ENTIRELY IN RUSSIAN

Alekhine has long earned a reputation not only a brilliant experience, but also the best chess writer and theoretician of the first half of 20th century. Alekhine's Games, which are shining examples of chess creativity, are provided with detailed notes. Alekhine's Heritage is the best commentator of his time - a truly invaluable material for anyone interested in the development of chess and who wants to improve.

This is the second volume of a two-volume biography of World Chess Champion Alexander Alekhine. This second volume is devoted to the art of the strategic concepts of the First Russian World Champion and his contribution to the theory and practice of chess endings. The book contains more than 170 annotated games and explanations. The final chapter is about the creative community and the views of Alekhine and the Soviet players. This book is designed for advanced players.

Alexander Alexandrovich Kotov was born 12 August 1913. He was a Soviet chess grandmaster and author. He was Soviet champion, a two-time world title Candidate, and a prolific chess author. Kotov served in high posts in the Soviet Chess Federation and most of his books were written during the period of Cold War between the US and the USSR. Therefore, his works tended to be rather critical of (and occasionally somewhat dismissive toward) American players. Russian players, on the other hand, were presented and described in a particularly favorable light. He died 8 January 1981 in Moscow.

  • Alexander Alekhine - Master of Attack
    What separated Alexander Alekhine from the rest of his contemporaries? Why did he dominate the chess world for so long? The main reason was undoubtedly his brilliant attacking style of play. Alekhine had a combinative gift and thrilled the chess public and influenced every great chess player since. Garry Kasparov once said I fell in love with the rich complexity of his ideas at the chessboard. Alekhine's attacks came suddenly, like destructive thunderstorms that erupted from a clear sky.
