    Book Description

    Through an introduction that explains how the ordinary chess player can improve in the various phases of the game of chess, and in enlightening commentaries far more extensive than space permits in an ordinary annotated game, former World Champion Dr. Max Euwe shows how a chess player should think, by indicating the moves for all but the most obvious moves of each game. By applying what he learns in this work the reader may, indeed, find himself traveling the road to chess mastery.

    About the Author(s)

    Dr. Max Euwe was born in Amsterdam, Holland. He received his doctorate in mathematics in 1923 from the University of Amsterdam and taught the subject in a lyceum for many years. During recent years he has worked as adviser in the electronics field. Dr. Euwe became Chess Champion of Holland at age 20, a title he still holds. In 1935 he became World Champion in a match with Alexander Alekhine, a title he held for two years. He is internationally known as a chess theorist and analyst and is the author of more than 70 books on chess.

    Dr. Walter Meiden is Associate Professor of Romance Languages at Ohio State University. He took his B.A. Degree from the University of Michigan in 1931, an M.A. from Ohio State University in 1933 and his Ph.D. from the same institution in 1945. His experience as a teacher includes a wartime assignment to the United States Naval Academy , 1943-1946, where he instructed in French, Spanish and German. Dr. Meiden first met Dr. Euwe during a trip abroad, a meeting that led to their collaboration on this and other books.

    • Grandmaster Chess
      The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975
      Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.

This is a skill which Grandmaster Simon Williams addresses in this book.
