A Truly Extraordinary TournamentOne of the most remarkable and famous chess tournaments ever took place in New York City in March and April 1924. It had a narrative that is still striking today: Three world champions, undisputed world champions, fulfilling their destiny. The stunning performance of the 55 year old former world champion Emanuel Lasker. The seemingly invincible reigning world champion Jose Capablanca suffering his first loss in eight years. And all 110 tournament games deeply annotated by future world champion Alexander Alekhine. Softback 352 pages.The tournament book that Alekhine produced became the stuff of legend. He provides real analysis, and with words, not just moves. He imbues the book with personality, on the one hand ruthlessly objective, even with his own mistakes, on the other, candidly subjective. This is a modern 21st Century Edition of Alekhines classic, using figurine algebraic notation, adding many more diagrams, but preserving the original, masterful text and annotations, including Alekhines fascinating overview of the opening theory at that time.
