The book is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the international chess tournament Hastings-1895 contains all games from this famous competition, where E.Lasker, W.Steinitz, M.Chigorin, Z.Tarrasch and other outstanding chess players of that time participated. The tournament games were held as sharp uncompromising struggles and are of unquestionable interest to modern chesslovers as examples of inspired creativity of last luminaries. A first collection of these games was issued in England soon after the completion of the tournament, with participants being annotators themselves. The second collection occurred in Germany a year later with a chess master and a chess journalist Emil Schallop as the editor-in-chief. He broadly reworked the English edition for the European chess audience. The current edition is the third collection of games from this tournament and includes Schallop's annotations for the first time translated to Russian. The title includes analysis and annotations by masters of subsequent generations, evaluations which focus on key moments of struggle. Some games are given with annotations of Z.Tarrasch, G.Levenfish and P.Romanovsky, as published at 30-ies and 40-ies. The foreword to the book is written by the grandmaster Mark Taimanov.   Order
