    Saint Petersburg 1895/96
    Catalog Code: B0025CA

    With the conclusion of the great Hastings Tournament in September of 1895, it became apparent that a new chess star of the first magnitude had appeared: Harry Nelson Pillsbury. His debut was dramatic and striking, for this virtual unknown had eclipsed the best players of that time with a combination of élan and grace. However, the revelation of a new world-class player brought with it the natural questions of both skeptics and admirers, some demanding verification and others eager to see their hero demonstrate his mastery with further verve. The five highest players at Hastings were invited for the St. Petersburg tournament: Pillsbury, Chigorin, Lasker, Tarrasch and Steinitz. Tarrasch declined, the others accepted. Each of these players had plenty of reason to fight hard for first place in Saint Petersburg 1895/96. It is one of the strongest chess tournaments ever held.

    Chicago 1926/Lake Hopatcong 1926 Chess Tournaments

    Publisher Dale Brandreth has a fine track record of bringing out high quality tournament books and best games collections. Here he rescues two lesser known US tournaments with the help of the energetic Robert Sherwood who provides detailed analyses to all the games. The Chicago International of 1926 saw Frank Marshall top the field ahead of Maroczy and Torre, with other famous names such as Edward Lasker and Isaac Kashdan in the chasing pack. Lake Hopatcong 1926 was a stronger double-round event with Capablanca winning ahead of Kupchik, Maroczy, Marshall and Ed.Lasker.
