Tomasz Lissowski, Adrian Mikhailchishin & Miguel Najdorf

Miguel Najdorf was born in Poland but was stranded in Argentina in 1939 when, whilst he was playing in the Buenos Aires Chess Olympiad, Germany invaded Poland. He stayed, taking Argentinian citizenship, to become one of their leading post war Grandmasters as well as a successful businessman. Najdorf is famed for having invented one of the most popular openings of all time, the Sicilian Najdorf, for his feats of blindfold play and for his longevity (he played in tournaments against eleven world champions). Najdorf was also a World Championship contender himself in the 1940s and 1950s.

In this book Polish historian Tomasz Lissowski and has compiled an entertaining and carefully researched biography of Najdorf. The book also includes 130 of Najdorf's best games, nearly half of which have contemporary annotations by Najdorf himself. Grandmaster Adrian Mikhailchishin has annotated the rest of the games. The book concludes with a chapter showing some of Najdorf's best endgames and a Find the Winning Move section.

Published 2005, softback, 256 pages.
