Erfarne IM Craig Pritchett tar leseren med på en konsentrert reise gjennom de store sjakkmesterne helt fra Labourdonnais og Anderssen til Magnus Carlsen. Her er blant annet mange av partiene som du burde se og kjenne.

Dette er historien om spillet og spillerne og ikke minst den moderne utviklingen av selve sjakkspillet. Elegant nok forsidetegning med Magnus Carlsen i spill mot Wilhelm Steinitz!

Forlagets egen omtale:

This book takes the reader on a journey from early 19th century developments in the game up to the present-day. It takes in the revolutionary Wilhelm Steinitz’s early summation and establishment of a firm positional basis for chess and the considerable contributions made by all of the subsequent world champions and certain other great players, including the contemporary computer phenomenon, AlphaZero.

Fra forordet:

I wrote his book primarily to explore, confirm and convey my own under-standing of this grand sweep of chess history. To that extent it can only be a sub-jective work and readers may hold other opinions. Though I hope that much in this book is, indeed, persuasive, please feel free to reflect and draw your own conclusions. I also aimed at containing my account in one accessible volume, in-spired by such succinct chess classics, as Richard Réti’s, Masters of the Chessboard, Max Euwe’s, The Development of Chess Style, and others.

We are all historically rooted, inescapably driven to constantly re-interpret the past to help make sense of our present and possible future. Indeed, the past often touches us when least expected. My working copy of Imre König’s fine book, Chess From Morphy to Botwinnik, on loan from the Edinburgh Chess Club’s ‘Aitken’ collection, is warmly inscribed by the author to his friend, Dr James M Aitken (1908-83), ten times Scottish chess champion.
