An unpublished work by Nimzowitsch in Spanish! His work on the Carlsbad tournament, a tournament that brought together the best players in the world, except for Alekhine, and a total of 22 participants, is very interesting and well deserved
this edition. Nimzowitsch achieved a historic victory in this tournament, ahead of Capablanca, Spielmann, Rubinstein, Euwe, Vidmar, Bogoljubov, etc.
His modern ideas and approaches were endorsed with this prestigious victory. In this work Nimzowitsch analyzes 30 games with his characteristic and fun style. Chess was advancing with its outreach works, with its positional ideas and with its new treatments in the openings, which had followers like Alekhine himself (for example, in the Nimzoindia and the Indian Lady), but unfortunately soon after it would arrive world war ii.
Nimzowitsch, considered the third best player in the world —after Alekhine and Capablanca— was the most important figure in the hypermodern school and influenced chess players of the likes of Larsen and Petrosian. His legacy lasts until
Together with the work of this universal thinker, Editorial Chessy has compiled six articles by Alekhine (who was present in Carlsbad, invited by the tournament director, Victor Tietz), as many articles by the historian Edward Winter and some others from his vintage, which favors the publication of a very complete book on this important tournament.
In summary, with the Carlsbad tournament chess continued to evolve by leaps and bounds.
