My Best Games of Chess - Alexander Alekhine

In chess literature, there have only been a very few chess books that have immediately – and permanently – established themselves as classics. Lasker’s Manual of Chess by Emanuel Lasker, Masters of the Chessboard by Richard Réti and Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual by Mark Dvoretsky are three that come to mind. There are of course others, among them My Best Games of Chess, 1908-1937 by the fourth world chess champion, Alexander Alekhine.

The original English edition, published three-quarters of a century ago, used English descriptive notation, contained one photograph, no crosstables and was released in two separate volumes. This new 21st-century edition, presented with modern algebraic notation, has combined both books into a single volume, added more than three dozen archival photographs, crosstables, Alekhine’s complete match and tournament records, a foreword by Russian grandmaster Igor Zaitsev, as well as many more diagrams.

A comprehensive computer-assisted analytical supplement has also been prepared and is available for download at no extra charge, so that, if you wish, you may compare Alekhine’s impressive notes with the preferences of the silicon monster.

Whether you feel as if you are revisiting an old friend, or being introduced to this splendid game collection for the first time, you will marvel at how Alekhine’s games and works remain in many respects extraordinarily consonant with the modern approach. And you will not fail to be impressed by the genuine genius that is Alekhine.
