Alexander Cherniaev & Alexander Meynell

David Janowski was one of the leading grandmasters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Victories in individual games against Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine, a phenomenal run of successes in major tournaments and a universally acknowledged elegance of style, combined to make him one of the most feared and respected exponents of the game. Janowski, however, has not been rewarded in English language chess literature with the accolades he deserves.

In this book, the first collection in English of his best games and results, the authors introduce us to a great fighter and artist, knowledge of whose games will enrich the experience of any chess aficionado. They have selected 64 of Janowski's best games with annotations either by leading contemporaries of Janowski or by the authors themselves. Tournament cross tables and a list of games are also included.

Alexander Cherniaev is a Russian Grandmaster, journalist and author based in Guildford, England. He has been a silver medallist in the Moscow championship. Alexander Meynell is official coach of the Hammersmith Chess Club and maintains one of Britain’s most extensive chess libraries.

Published 2005, softback, 147 pages.
