Chess & Checkers - The Way to Mastership

Product Code: B0348IS

Alternative Views:


Edward Lasker was an expert and authority on many games, not only chess and checkers but also go, the Oriental game he introduced to the United States. General strategic principles rather than analyses requiring memorizing are stressed throughout the book, so that even a beginner or a player of moderate experience can understand the discussion. This method of teaching is unquestionably the most interesting and effective, because it makes the student think for himself. 

Edward Lasker was Paris Champion in 1912, London Champion in 1914, New York City Champion in 1915, the Chicago Champion in1916, and won five U.S. Open events (1916, 1917, 1919, 1929, and 1921).

Edward Lasker competed in the famous New York 1924 tournament, the strongest tournament ever played up until that time. He authored several chess books. FIDE awarded the IM title in 1961.
