The famous chess tournament London 1922. A forward by Andy Soltis explains how Jose Capablanca was the superstar of chess in 1922 and London was his first serious chess in the 15 months since he had won the World championship title from Emanuel Lasker. Capa was the chess player whom even non players could identify as he was a celebrity. But the tournament signified not only Capablanca's return to the game, it was also something of a revival of international chess after four years of war and four more of recovery. The new world champion would ease into first place undefeated ahead of future challenger Alexander Alekhine. The young Dutchman Max Euwe was honing his skills that would eventually take him to the top of the chess world. And Richard Reti was about to unveil his Opening of the Future 1.Nf3! London 1922 is important for all these reasons, but it also served as the setting for the creation of the famous London Rules which would govern the way in which prospective challengers to the title would have the right to play the champion. As an added bonus, all fourteen games of the 1921 Lasker versus Capablanca Wrld Championship match have been added to this new 21st century edition, with annotations by Capa himself! Softback, 128 pages. Dimensions 152 x 226 x 8mm, 181g.
