F D Yates

A reprint of the original 1934 edition celebrating the talents of the Yorkshire born player who, in contrast to his contemporaries in Britain, took the decision to become a chess professional and endure the hardship which that entailed at the time. Yates was capable of competing with the best, defeating Alekhine, Reti, Tartakower and other leading masters on numerous occasions whilst remaining slightly below their level of consistency. He was British Champion six times.

The games in this book show Yates battling against almost all the leading players of his era from 1910 to 1932 and are accompanied by his own annotations. Yates died, aged 48, following a gas leak at his lodgings in 1932.

There is an introduction and biography by William Winter and appreciations by WH Watts, Emanuel Lasker, Frank Marshall, Sir George Thomas and EG Twitchett. In English descriptive notation (1.P-K4, etc)

Published 2004, hardback, English descriptive notation, 181 pages.
