    World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953
    Catalog Code: B0285IS

    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.

    My Best Games of Chess
    1908-1937
    Catalog Code: B0064RE

    In chess literature, there have only been a very few chess books that have immediately-and permanently-established themselves as classics. Lasker's Manual of Chess by Emanuel Lasker, Masters of the Chessboard by Richard Reti and Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual by Mark Dvoretsky are three that come to mind. There are of course others, among them My Best Games of Chess, 1908-1937 by the fourth world chess champion, Alexander Alekhine.

    This unequaled collection reproduces Alekhine's 220 best games, his own personal acounts of the dazzling victories that made him a legend. Spanning almost thirty years of tournament play, it includes historic matches against Capablanca, Euwe and Bogoljubov, and chronicles his briliant ascent to world mastery, his surprising defeat in 1935, and his dramatic return two years later - the first deposed champion to regain his crown.

    CLEARANCE - Sicilian Defence
    Lines with P-KB4
    Catalog Code: CB0550RB

    There are two Sicilian lines where White plays an early P-KB4; 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 P-KB4 which is probably inferior to the system popularised by the Dutch player Vinken - 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 N-QB3 and 3 P-KB4. This latter system occupies most of this book. The author demonstrates the Vinken System to be a viable alternative for White in which the first player strives for a King-side attack which can so easily come off.
