Yakov Vladimirov

Masterpieces of Chess Composition - 5

Stapled booklet containing 100 diagrammed studies, with solutions, from the work of the famous Platov brothers.

The Platov brothers, Vasily and Mikhail, were born in Riga, Latvia, in the early 1880s. Vasily became a doctor in Moscow and was later awarded the Order of Lenin for his achievements in medicine. Mikhail became an engineer, also in Moscow, but, after making an uncomplimentary remark about Stalin, was arrested and sentenced to ten years in a "corrective" labour camp in Kargopol. After less than a year there he was dead.

The brothers composed studies, initially separately then later together, which aimed to depict the diversity of the struggles between pieces and pawns whilst maintaining natural "game-like" starting positions.

Compiled by Grandmaster of Chess Composition Yakov Vladimirov

Published 2002, softback, stapled booklet, 51 pages.
