Master Class Vol.3: Alexander Alekhine Chess World Champion
Master Class Vol.3: Alexander Alekhine

Alexander Alekhine, the fourth chess World Champion, played many fantastic attacking games and to this day enjoys the reputation of being an attacking genius.

But ever since Alekhine won the World Championship match against Capablanca in Buenos Aires 1927, the chess world could see that the Russian-born Alekhine – who immigrated to France in 1921 – also handled technical positions excellently.

His success against Capablanca was still a surprise because the Cuban was considered to be virtually unbeatable.

After winning the World Championship Alekhine reached the peak of his career in the early 1930s winning famous tournaments such as San Remo 1930 and Bled 1931 by a huge margin.

Moreover, the chess World Champion was also a prolific author and in annotating his games gave deep insights into the thinking of a World Champion.

Alekhine was one of the best players in the history of chess and treated all phases of the game-opening, middlegame, and endgame – in textbook fashion.

No wonder a lot of later top-class players, not least Garry Kasparov, claimed Alekhine as their role model in chess.

On this DVD Grandmasters Dorian Rogozenco, Mihail Marin, Karsten Müller, and International Oliver Reeh present outstanding games, stunning combinations, and exemplary endgames by Alexander Alekhine.
