186 Seiten, kartoniert, Caissa Editions, 1. Auflage 2003
British master Alan Phillips has enjoyed chess competition for most of his adult life and though always remaining an amateur player, he scored fine wins against many of his illustrious contemporaries. High points of his chess career include joint victory in the British Championship of 1954 and a place on the England team at the Moscow Chess Olympiad two years later.
Here he presents a collection of over one hundred of his favorite games, replete with sparkling tactics, and taken from the period 1946-1999.
In addition he features a comparable number of brilliant games played by his British contemporaries, who were also mainly of amateur status. Players featured here include Sir George Thomas, William Winter, C. H. O'D. Alexander, Frank Parr, Sir Stuart Milner-Barry, Harry Golombek, John Fuller, Jonathan and Oliver Penrose, David Hooper, Gerald Abrahams, Peter Clarke, Leonard Barden, John and Paul Littlewood, William Hartston, Raymond Keene, etc.
In this exciting anthology are to be found all major chess openings: romantic gambits, the well-founded Ruy Lopez, the sharp Sicilian and King's Indian Defense and King's Indian Reversed at which the author was a true connoisseur.
Two books in one! A best games collection and a showcase of British chess at its best.
