Vienna 1922 by Larry Evans, published by Russell Enterprises

Description

This new edition includes a cross-table, player index, a Foreword by John Donaldson, and a new Introduction by the author (who died in 2010, just before it went to press).

 

Vienna 1922 was a remarkable tournament where, as Donaldson says, “all the stars of the day (Alekhine, Bogoljubow, Gruenfeld, Maroczy, Reti, Spielmann, Tarrasch and Tartakover) played except Capablanca and Lasker.” The tournament featured a remarkable comeback by Akiba Rubinstein (whose his post-World War I results were generally so disappointing); Rubinstein scored 11.5 out of 14 and finished a point and half ahead of Tartakower, and two and a half points ahead of Alekhine. Fans of the great players of old will want to pick up a copy.

Review by US International Master, John Watson. Written by American grandmaster Larry Evans, Paperback, 144 pages. 150 x 226 x 10mm, 204g
