New York 1924A 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, mind you ? fulfilling their destiny. The stunning performance of the 55-year-old former world champion Emanuel Lasker. The seemingly invincible reigning José Capablanca suffering his first loss in eight years. And all 110 tournament games deeply annotated by future world champion Alexander Alekhine. 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 Alekhine's classic, using figurine algebraic notation, adding many more diagrams, but preserving the original, masterful text and annotations, including Alekhine's fascinating overview of the opening theory at that time.Excerpts, including the Table of Contents and the Foreword, of most Russell Enterprises books are available at http://russell-enterprises.com/excerptsdownloads.html.
