    Book DescriptionPublisher Dale Brandreth has a fine track record of bringing out high quality tournament books and best games collections.

    Here he rescues two lesser known US tournaments with the help of the energetic Robert Sherwood who provides detailed analyses to all the games.

    The Chicago International of 1926 saw Frank Marshall top the field ahead of Maroczy and Torre, with other famous names such as Edward Lasker and Isaac Kashdan in the chasing pack.

    Lake Hopatcong 1926 was a stronger double-round event with Capablanca winning ahead of Kupchik, Maroczy, Marshall and Ed.Lasker.

    The games to both these events have never been so deeply analysed before and many new discoveries have been made.

    The fact that this a limited edition of only 600 copies - with each book individually numbered, makes it a valuable collector's item as well as a fine tournament book in its own right.
