byAron Nimzovich and Jim Marfia Paperback: 160 pagesPublisher: Dover Publications; Reprint edition (September 10, 2004)ISBN: 0486439429Known as “The Father of Modern Chess” and “The Stormy Petrel of the Chess World,” Aron Nimzovich (1886–1935), transformed his greatest performance into a brilliantly eccentric and entertaining book. In this account of his victory at the 1929 Carlsbad Tournament, Nimzovich offers a captivating retrospective of his triumph over some of the best of his contemporaries: Capablanca, Spielmann, Maroczy, Rubinstein, Marshall, Euwe, Bogolyubov, Tartakower, Sämisch, and ten others. A tart analysis of Carlsbad’s 30 best games includes the author’s tense duel with Capablanca (drawn), and the brilliancy prize game between Sämisch and Grünfeld.
