Lasker is in action again, saving his world championship title in the very last game to tie 5-5 with Schlechter. Elsewhere a match between Marshall and Showalter decides the U.S. Championship decisively 8,5-3,5 in Marshall's favour and Capablanca continues to take the American continent by storm. Also reported is the emergence of the other Laskers: Berthold - the champion's brother, a strong player in his own right, and Eduard, from Berlin, who is no relation but soon to make his mark. An analysis of the "Ruy Lopez in recent matches" concludes that Morphy's Defence (3...a6) and in particular the Open variation, as essayed by Schlechter against Lasker, are Black's best defences.
The American Chess Bulletin of beloved memory was a New York publication which grew out of Marshall's success at Cambridge Springs 1904. Edited and published by Hartwig Cassel and Herman Helms, it was a definitive journal of record for USA and European events. Now - providing a great historical service to chess fans everywhere - Publishing House Moravian Chess have reissued this great series in stoutly bound hardback volumes, bringing back to life the essence of the turn-of-the-century chess scene. Each issue is packed to the brim with top-quality games, analysis and tournament reports, as well as fascinating background material and witty anecdotes which really captured the spirit of the times. A collector's dream!
