    A Primer of Chess
    Catalog Code: B0332IS

    A Primer of Chess teaches you how to find the good moves. When it is your turn to move, your objective as a chess player should be to find a good move. If every move you play in the game is a good move, you will win, usually because your opponent will throw himself on the sword.

    Last Lectures
    The Chess Legacy of Jose Raul Capablanca
    Catalog Code: B0303IS

    Last Lectures is, as the name suggests, a series of lectures given over the radio by former World Chess Champion José Raúl Capablanca just a few months before he died. While he was preparing these lectures, he dictated them to his wife, Olga Capablanca, who typed them. As a result, we have them today. Perhaps more than any other player in the history of chess, Jose Raoul Capablanca was noted for his ability to cut through the complexities of modern chess theory and find the winning line in grandmaster tournament play.

    Torneo Internacional De Ajedrez
    Celebrado En La Habana Del 15 De Febrero Al 6 De Marco De 1913
    Catalog Code: B0289IS

    José Raúl Capablanca fue un ajedrecista cubano, campeón mundial de ajedrez de 1921 a 1927. En 1913 jugó en La Habana y terminó segundo detrás de Frank Marshall, habiendo perdido una de las partidas contra el norteamericano después de tener una posición ventajosa. Reuben Fine afirmó que Capablanca había exigido al alcalde el desalojar a todos los espectadores para que no lo vieran en el mal estado de ánimo mientras perdía.

    Chess The Hard Way
    Catalog Code: B0258IS

    '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.

    San Antonio 1972
    Church's Fried Chicken First International Chess Tournament
    Catalog Code: B0073IS

    San Antonio 1972 was either the strongest chess tournament ever played in the history of the United States or, if not the very strongest, then second only to New York 1924. What makes this book especially great is not merely was it a great tournament with great players, but that the players annotated some of their own games. In this day and age, there are millions of games in the chess databases, but annotated games are increasingly hard to find.

    Collection of Chess Studies by Troitzky
    Catalog Code: B0058IS

    Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.
