This is a study of the six greatest chess players in the world during the period 1870 to 1950 including all the games they played against each other, with biographies, annotations and statistics by chess master and mathematics professor Dr. Nathan J. Divinsky. Lasker – Pillsbury Lasker – Rubinstein Lasker – Capablanca Lasker – Alekhine Lasker – Botvinnik A statistical study of all the great chess masters from 1870 to 1950 including all the games played between the top six. Thus book studies age differences and performances to see how they affect results. It is remarkable that an elderly man would have much of a chance against an aggressive young man. It is also remarkable that such huge crowd would gather to watch this game. Yet, Lasker who is on the right got the better of it. Botvinnik who is on the left was lucky to hold a draw in this game. Lasker was born in 1868 and Botvinnik was born in 1911 so Lasker was 43 years older.
