Pasadena 1932 International Chess Tournament

Pasadena 1932 International Chess Tournament

Ref: x3371

Product type: Printed book

In stock

Robert Sherwood, Dale Brandreth & Bruce Monson

The Pasadena tournament came about as a result of chess organisers in California desire to hold an international tournament coinciding with World Champion Dr Alekhine's world tour. It was hoped that Capablanca would play but, as described in the book, this did not come about and Alekhine was joined by the USA's leading players including Kashdan, Dake and Reshevsky.

All available game scores are included (54 out of 66), together with annotations and background information from a variety of sources. The tournament was won by Alekhine from Kashdan.

The book also includes a report on the Pasadena Women's tournament (although no games) and articles on Mary Baines and LaVieve Hines, America's strongest woman player of the time but now almost unknown.

Published 2011, hardback, 131 pages.
