American Chess Bulletin 1909 6
288 Seiten, Leinen, Reprint, Caissa 90-Olomouc, 1998
The St. Petersburg tournament, won by Lasker and Rubinstein, gets thorough coverage with notes to games by leading players. In the match between Capablanca and Marshall, won by the Cuban 8-1 with 14 draws, much comment is passed about the number of draws and Marshall's defensive tactics after going 7-1 down early on. Capablanca also found time to play a Rice Chess Club "rapid transit" tournament of five seconds per move, winning with 18/19.
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!
