Seven men have been acknowledged world champions in the centuries old history of the game. Fred Reinfeld, internationally known chess authority, tells the story of these world champions in a dramatic and profound book. He delves into their triumphs, their achievements, and their failures to find what was in their play in their play and in their characters that made them outstanding. Every chess player can derive valuable knowledge about his own games from these studies. Here are Adolf Anderssen (The Romantic), Paul Morphy (The Gentleman), Wilhelm Steinitz (The Law Giver), Emanuel Lasker (The Philosopher), Jose Raul Capablanca (The Machine), Alexander Alekhine (The Fighter). and the only still living ex-world champion, Max Euwe (The Logician). Here too, are the lifetime tournament and match records of these giants of chess. Here are some of their finest games, engrossingly annotated and lavishly illustrated with diagrams.

About the Author:

Fred Reinfeld was born on January 27, 1910. Although Fred Reinfeld is now remembered as a writer about chess and other subjects, he was also a strong player. In the 1950 USCF Rating List he was rated number 6 in the United States with a rating of 2593. He defeated Reshevsky twice and Fine once in tournament games and drew World Champion Alekhine in the grandmaster tournament in Pasadena 1932, the strongest tournament ever played in the Western United States. In Pasadena 1932, the strongest grandmaster tournament in the USA in the decade of the 1930s, Fine and Reinfeld both got the same score of 5-6. Fine won their individual game. However, Reinfeld did better against the higher ranked players, including a win over Reshevsky and a draw with World Chess Champion Alexander Alekhine. Final scores were: Alekhine 8.5-2.5, Kashdan 7.5-3.5, Dake, Steiner and Reshevsky 6-5, Borochow 5.5-5.5, Reinfeld, Bernstein, Fine and Factor 5-6, Araiza 3.5-7.5, and Fink 3-8. After that however Reinfeld only played in a few other chess events. He spent the rest of his life writing about the game, not playing it. Reinfeld wrote more than one hundred chess books. In his day, almost all young chess players started off on his books. Nowadays, his books are mostly out of print because they were written in descriptive notation, as this one is. Fred Reinfeld died on May 29, 1964.
