Sergei Soloviev (Ed)

The fourth World Champion was one of the game's greatest players and biggest personalities. Alekhine was a player of universal style, combining brilliant tactical play with excellent planning and technique. Very few of his games are routine as he was constantly on the look out for unexpected ways to gain or transform an advantage.

This, the first of a three volume series, contains 464 of Alekhine's tournament and match games beginning with his early correspondence tournaments and finishing with Vienna 1922. The annotations, in languageless Chess Informant style, are by GM Alexander Khalifman and IMs Vladimir Ivanov and Segei Klimov amongst others and draw on Alekhine's own notes as well as more contemporary sources where relevant. The book has diagrams throughout, cross-tables for all the tournaments and indexes of openings and opponents.

Published 2002, softback, 423 pages.
