Learn from the Games of a Chess Legend

Emanuel Lasker was world champion for a remarkable 27 years (1894-1921) and is generally regarded as having been way ahead of his time in his understanding of chess. He primarily regarded chess as a fight and considered that the strongest move in a position was the one that created greatest problems for the opponent and not necessarily the one that was objectively “best”.

Dawid Markelowicz Janowsky (1868-1927) stellt eine der schillerndsten Figuren der Schachwelt dar:

Er gewann mit seinem bedingungslosen Spiel auf Angriff zahlreiche bedeutende Turniere, um die gewonnenen Preisgelder gleich wieder beim Roulette auf's Spiel zu setzen.

Er unterlag Emanuel Lasker in einem WM-Kampf 1910 in Berlin mit +0 -8 =3, um sich dann abfällig über das Spiel seines Gegners zu äußern.

Spieler, gegen die er verlor, bezeichnete er als "Kaffeehausspieler", "Korkser" und "Dominospieler" und wollte ihnen eine Figur vorgeben.

Gyula Breyer (1893-1921) was a highly successful and imaginative chess player. He won the championship of his native country Hungary as a teenager and achieved remarkable results against the leading players of his day.

But first and foremost, Breyer was a revolutionary in his chess thinking. He promoted the idea of dynamic chess and formulated many of the Hypermodern concepts, long before others started their investigations. Yet, after his death, he was omitted from most of the chess history books and today is only known for the Breyer variation, an ever popular defence against the Ruy Lopez.

5th World Chess Champion

 

The fifth book of the World Chess Champions series focuses on the life and career of the Dutchman Max Euwe .

This soft-spoken professor of mathematics rocked the chess world in 1935 when he defeated the seemingly irresistible force, Alexander Alekhine, to become world champion.

Many chessplayers thought this was an upset of the first magnitude. Hardly. Euwe was at his prime and the best in the world at the time. In fact, Euwe posted a plus score against Alekhine in the four games they played between the 1935 and 1937 matches.
