CLEARANCE - The World Chess Championship
Great Encounters in Contemporary ChessProduct 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. When this solitary man was found dead in his hotel at Estoril near Lisbon, his head drooping to one side, a chessboard in front of him, someone took a snapshot of the scene and thus left us a photograph to serve as a symbol of the journey through life of an unusual personality.
