      Book Description One of the greatest chess legends of all time, Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935), is best known for founding the Hypermodernism school of chess, which emerged after World War I to challenge the chess ideologies of traditional central European masters. This first full-scale biography of Nimzowitsch chronicles his early life in Denmark, his family and education, and his fascination with the game that would become the focus of his life. Also included are explorations of his tournament games and records, his dispute with influential chess teacher Siegbert Tarrasch, and his role in the development of Hypermodern Chess. With detailed accounts of nearly 450 games and the only narrative of Nimzowitsch from 1914 to 1924, a period formerly cloaked in mystery, this volume offers the most thorough profile available of one of chess's greatest innovators.

      Chess Informant - ISSUE 119
      Viking Edition
      Chess Informant 119 Viking is largely dedicated to the newly crowned world champion, Magnus Carlsen. He’s the emerging global brand and the new face of our beloved game. We offer exclusive Carlsen photos inside Chess Informant 119, but for the cover we preferred the symbolism of a sailing drakkar boat. This newest installment of the Informant is all about red and blue that one can connect with the Norwegian flag, perhaps as additional evidence that Vikings are back in fashion.

      Chess Informant - ISSUE 120
      Maracana Edition
      GM Alexander Morozevich, winner of Poikovsky 2014 super-tournament, one of the most original and daring players on the planet, launches his Midnight in Moscow column in which he takes chess to its outer limits with examples of extreme opening play. Surrealism in chess – that’s what Alex is painting on the 64 squares of the chessboard. But this is not just pure fantasy. You will discover that you really can unleash a novelty as early as the 3rd move – even in today’s gladiatorial world of competitive chess!
