One of the greatest players of all time, Alexander Alekhine (1892–1946) was world chess champion for over 16 years. Not only a supreme master of the complicated position, he was also an excellent annotator. In this volume he supplies much information and insight about more than 100 games played between 1939 and 1945, as well as delightfully candid views on fellow masters and rivals for the world title.
In Part One, devoted to open games, Alekhine analyzes games featuring such openings as the Ruy Lopez, Four Knights Game, Philidor's Defense, and the Scotch Gambit. Part Two is devoted to semi-open games, featuring the French Defense, Caro-Kann Defense, Sicilian Defense, Alekhine's Defense, and King's Pawn, Nimzowitsch Defense. In Part Three Alekhine discusses examples of closed games, including the Queen's Gambit Declined, Orthodox Defense; Queen's Gambit Declined, Slav Defense; Queens' Gambit Accepted; Queen's Pawn, Nimzowitsch Defense; the Queen's Pawn Game, English Opening, Catalan System; and more.
This book lets you discover the stratagems and strategies involved in a host of fascinating struggles between the world's greatest chess players: Alekhine, Capablanca, Bogoljubov, Kashdan, Reshevsky, Tartakower, Keres, Najdor, and numerous others. With characteristic thoroughness, clarity, and humor, Alekhine guides you through the intricacies of each contest, illuminating complicated positions and offering a world champion's special insight and commentary.
