    San Remo 1930 International Chess Tournament
    Catalog Code: B0024CA

    Alekhine's super performance with 14 out of 15 against the world's best lacking only Capablanca and Em. Lasker. Excellent notes by Robert Sherwood, Alekhine, Maroczy, Nimzowitsch, Bogoljubow, Yates, Vidmar, etc. As Euwe later wrote about Alekhine's games at San Remo in Meet the Masters: ''His wins in this tournament exhibited, one and all, the art of chess at its most perfect yet.'' Hardback book with all games annotated and with many diagrams. Part of the Great Tournament series.

    Saint Petersburg 1895/96
    Catalog Code: B0025CA

    With the conclusion of the great Hastings Tournament in September of 1895, it became apparent that a new chess star of the first magnitude had appeared: Harry Nelson Pillsbury. His debut was dramatic and striking, for this virtual unknown had eclipsed the best players of that time with a combination of élan and grace. However, the revelation of a new world-class player brought with it the natural questions of both skeptics and admirers, some demanding verification and others eager to see their hero demonstrate his mastery with further verve. The five highest players at Hastings were invited for the St. Petersburg tournament: Pillsbury, Chigorin, Lasker, Tarrasch and Steinitz. Tarrasch declined, the others accepted. Each of these players had plenty of reason to fight hard for first place in Saint Petersburg 1895/96. It is one of the strongest chess tournaments ever held.

    Ostende 1906
    International Chess Tournament
    Catalog Code: B0005CA

    Finally this complex and great tournament appears just about one hundred years after it occurred. Schlechter won by a slight margin in a very complicated series of qualifying sections. Gillam worked hard with a dedicated band of helpers to track down all the known games, graced in most cases with notes, of that era.

    Chicago 1926/Lake Hopatcong 1926 Chess Tournaments
    Catalog Code: B0017CA

    Publisher 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.

    New York 1940
    Catalog Code: B0006CA

    A first-rate tournament book for a strong US Championship in which Reshevsky just edged out Fine by 1/2 point. Kashdan was third followed by Pinkus, Simonson, Denker, Kupchik, Bernstein, Polland, Reinfeld, Shainswit, Adams, Seidman, Green, Hanauer, Woliston, and Littman. Notes to most of the games are from contemporary sources, and Fritz 7 checked many of the critical positions.

    AVRO 1938 International Chess Tournament
    Catalog Code: B0021CA

    Full notes to all the games PLUS some excellent photos and extensive commentary on the prelude and aftermath to this great event, the strongest tournament ever held up to that time. The AVRO tournament was held in the Netherlands in 1938, sponsored by the Dutch broadcasting company AVRO. The event was a double round-robin tournament.
