Masterpieces and Dramas of the Soviet Championships 3 [INNBUNDET]

Tredje del av Sergey Voronkovs bredt anlagte gjennomgang av Sovjetmesterskapene og sovjetisk sjakk fram til Stalins død i 1953. Historien om mye glimrende sjakk med et dramatisk og dels blodig bakteppe.

Forlagets egen omtale:

The third volume of Sergey Voronkov's epic tale takes the reader on a historical journey through the late Stalinist period in the USSR. It covers in depth the five Soviet championships from 1948 to 1952 and the playoff match between Botvinnik and Taimanov in 1953, which concludes one month before Stalin's death.

Against a background of rampant anti-Semitism, a new wave of repressions and descent into the First Cold War, in which chess was an important front, the USSR captures the world chess crown and Botvinnik and the generation that followed him, including Smyslov, Keres, Bronstein, and Boleslavsky, assert their places at the top-tables of Soviet and indeed global chess.

Yet a new group of legends begins to emerge, including Petrosian, Geller, Korchnoi, Taimanov, Averbakh, Simagin, Kholmov, and Furman making their championship debuts, as well as a semi-final appearance by Nikitin and Spassky's first quarter-final. At the same time, the reader learns about lesser-known masters Yuri Sakharov and Johannes Weltmander, victims of Stalinism who found solace in chess from their otherwise tragic lives.

The present volume contains 77 games and fragments, once again mostly annotated by the participants and other contemporary masters, augmented with modern computer analysis. It is illustrated with over 220 photos and cartoons from the period. Many of these photos come from unique archives, including that of David Bronstein, and are published for the first time.

  • Masterpieces and Dramas of the Soviet Championships vol. 1 1920-1937

    En imponerede dyptpløyende historie om de første Sovjetmesterskapene i sjakk og profilene i dem, i mildt sagt krevende tider på mange plan. I Moskva i 1920 truet spillerne med å reise hjem, på grunn av så lite mat at de sultet.
