    CLEARANCE - The Hague-Moscow 1948
    Match/Tournament for the World Chess Championship
    Catalog Code: B0068RE

    On March 24, 1946, the fourth world chess champion, Alexander Alekhine, passed away. He was the first – and still the only – champion to die while holding the title. To select a new champion, a powerful quintuple round-robin was held in The Hague and Moscow. The five strongest players of the era, including one former world champion, two future world champions, and two perennial contenders, took part in a grueling two-month, 25-round tournament

    CLEARANCE - New York 1924
    Catalog Code: B0003RE

    One of the most remarkable and famous chess tournaments ever took place in New York City in March and April 1924. It had a narrative that is still striking today: Three world champions, undisputed world champions mind you, fulfilling their destiny. 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.

    CLEARANCE - Wijk aan Zee Grandmaster Chess tournament 1975
    Catalog Code: CB0385RB

    With this in mind we commissioned Lubosh Kavalek to write a tournament book for us on one of the very strongest events in 1975, the Grandmaster tournament held in the little Dutch town of Wijk aan Zee. What Kavalek has written will undoubtedly be one of the greatest tournament books of all time. He has not only contributed penetrating analysis to many of the most interesting games played in Wijk aan Zee, he has also written something about every game, giving the reader an insight to the international tournament arena and helping him to understand what makes a chess master tick.

    Great Encounters in Contemporary Chess
    Catalog Code: CB0500RB

    The moment of death has the power to stress in a single move the achievement or the futility of a life. 

    The death of Alekhine contains a paradox. If he had sought happiness, he found something different; if he had wanted fame, his name will live as long as chess is played.
