The most important games of the world chess champions.

Volume 1. Wilhelm Steinitz, Emanuel Lasker and the first unofficial world champions

The most important games of the best chess players of all time, analyzed by Garry Kasparov

Garry Kasparov's idea is fascinating: a journey through the last 200 years of chess history! His work of the century, literally, keeps what it promises, because it tells the story of the fate of the great chess masters and the bitter fight for the chess crown in an incredibly original way. His very personal view of things guarantees high tension not only for the approximately 100,000 chess players organized in the German-speaking world.

Wilhelm Steinitz (World Champion from 1886 to 1894) – Wilhelm Steinitz, born in Prague in 1836, moved to Vienna as a young man to study mathematics, but then devoted himself entirely to chess. He laid the foundations of modern chess strategy and was convinced that all problems that arise on the board can be solved with scientific thinking. Steinitz died in New York in 1900.

Emanuel Lasker (1894 to 1921) – Born in Brandenburg in 1885, Emanuel Lasker is considered the pioneer of chess psychology. The doctor of mathematics and philosophy was also a master chess psychologist. His versatility, his sense of chess theory and his fighting spirit helped him to win almost all the matches and tournaments he took part in. Lasker died in New York in 1941.
