Book Description

New York 1889 was the strongest chess tournament ever held up until that time. It was supposed to be for the World Chess Championship, but it has never been recognized as such, primarily because Steinitz, who helped organize the event and who was present as a journalist, refused to play. According to the tournament rules, the tournament was to be for the World Championship as long as four Europeans played. Ten players, half of the field, came from Europe to play. They were Tschigorin, Gunsburg, Blackburne, Burn, Bird, Mason, Pollock, Gossip, Taubenhaus and Weiss. In short, all of the leading players of the world came, everybody except for Steinitz, who was there as a spectator and a journalist. This book contains all 432 games. Each game is annotated by Steinitz and all 432 games have been converted into Algebraic Notation by Sam Sloan.
