St. Petersburg 1909 - Emanuel Lasker
Paperback, 192 pages
The famous book on one of the greatest chess tournaments of all time by the 2nd World Chess Champion.
In February 1909, nineteen of the world's best chessplayers gathered in St. Petersburg to play in one of the most famous tournaments in chess history. World Champion Emanuel Lasker topped the list of competitors, which also included Akiva Rubinstein, considered by many to be Lasker's likely successor, Carl Schlechter, who would play one of the most famous matches against Lasker a year later, and many other of the greats of the era - Spielmann, Bernstein, Teichmann, Mieses and Tartakower, to name but a few.
This is the official tournament book - available for the first time in English in algebraic notation - written by Emanuel Lasker. He annotated all 175 games in the clear, instructive style that would become his trademark.
