Annotated Games & Essays

Every chess player who is serious about improving his game should study the lessons of Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935). 'My System' (published in 1925) and 'Chess Praxis' (1928) had tremendous impact and made Nimzowitsch one of the most influential chess thinkers of the 20th century . His books continue to be printed, sold and read to this day.

During several decades of research, German chess historian Rudolf Reinhardt compiled, from an immense variety of sources, all the games Nimzowitsch played after 1928. They are presented with notes by Nimzowitsch himself and, in some cases, by his contemporaries.

In addition to the games, Reinhardt also collected the articles and essays that Nimzowitsch wrote during that period.

Reinhardt's collection starts where Nimzowitsch's second volume Chess Praxis ends. It offers a unique view of the chess world of the late 1920s and 1930s, its top tournaments and the state of theory.

More importantly, it portrays Nimzowitsch the chess player and author in the last seven years of his short life. It's all there: the fights, the competitors and the polemics, the theories and teachings, in the incomparable style of the master: pointed, elegant, precise and highly original.

Peter Anderberg, Chess Magazine:

“If Nimzowitsch had published an additional third part of his two-volume 'System' series, he would definitely have used a large part of the material that is collected in this book.”
