Such comments as a labour of love and 'a tour de force' come to mind when perusing this large book. --British Chess Magazine

Another fine achievement --Edward Winter, Chess Notes

Présentation de l'éditeur

As one of the contestants in the first official World Championship match in 1886, Johannes Hermann Zukertort (1842-1888), is undeniably one of the great players of chess history. Despite a commanding lead in the early stages of that match, Zukertort ultimately had to bow for Steinitz, plagued by health problems that would cause his untimely death only two years later. The high-point of Zukertort s career was his triumph at the 1883 super-tournament in London. His dazzling win against Blackburne still stands as one of the greatest games of all time. Acclaimed chess author Jimmy Adams presents a selection of Zukertort s best games, mainly annotated by Zukertort himself, and a collection of insightful articles on Zukertort from contemporary sources. In this monumental book, originally published in 1989 in a limited edition and highly sought after by chess collectors, Jimmy Adams brings Zukertort s masterpieces to the notice of today s chess world and secures his rightful place in history as an important link between the old combinational and the modern positional school.

HASH(0x8eb8f1d4) étoiles sur 5 Artist of the Chessboard 23 septembre 2014
Par Salvatore Grasso - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I decided to buy this book on Johannes Zukertort, because of his style of play and great combinative skill. Zukertort had a long term illness from his youth and he passed away while he still young and this naturally affected his playing strength, had he of not been sick he would of beaten Steinitz in their World Championship Match. Zukertort had a great memory. He knew the Openings more than other players of his time, He was equally gifted in the
Middle game and Endgames as well. Who knows what would have happened if Zukertort had to play Lasker for the World Title if he was not ill, that would have been a great battle, anyone's guess I suppose. Zukertort in my opinion remains as one of the greatest chess player in history. His games speak for themselves. It has his games with diagrams, it has his biography, what others said about him, all in all this is a wonderful book. Jimmy Adams has done a great job in compiling this book, it has everything you need to know about the man Zukertort and his games.
He was indeed one of the chess immortals and his games will live on forever. A true artist of the chessboard. This would have to be one of the best chess books I have. Playing through his games is instructive and enjoyable. Definitely worth buying.

Excellent book! Articles about Zukertort by his contemporaries, and most of the commented games are commented by Zukertort himself! A real treasure.

New in Chess has done a great job. The binding is excellent. This book will last for many years.

HASH(0x8eb8f3e4) étoiles sur 5 Worthwhile Expose 31 mars 2015
Par Rev. John D. White - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Long-overlooked, little regarded, 19th century chess impresario Johannes Zukertort needed an up to the date explication of his importance. Adams has done a marvelous job here, publishing in paperback (much more affordable) his earlier hardback edition (pretty steep). The articles are worthwhile and educate the reader about Zukertort the person and chessplayer. The games are marvelous. To play overthem is to go back in time and to look over the shoulders of a brilliant, swashbuckling chess master who still has something to teach us in the 21st century. Not to be missed if you enjoy learning about famous grandmasters and playing over their games with explanatory notes.

HASH(0x8eb8f6d8) étoiles sur 5 Puzzles and Games from a Positional Pioneer, for a Diverse Audience 10 juillet 2015
Par Christopher J. Falter - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Johannes Zukertort was a pioneer of positional play, and probably the strongest player of the nineteenth century who failed to win the championship title. Although Steinitz is better known for introducing positional principles due to his well-known writings and his championship title, Zukertort at his apex about as strong and certainly as instructive. In numerous games, you see Zukertort patiently building a strong position while his opponent aimlessly seeks cheap tactical tricks, then capitalizing with a brilliant stroke at just the right moment. The contrast between positional patience and tactical jousting is especially strong in the dozen or so included games against his onetime mentor, Adolph Anderssen, the hero of "The Evergreen Game."

You will get a lot of good material in this high-quality paperback: contemporary historical sources, insightful essays from the British Chess Magazine and GM Yakov Neishtadt, and 319 games annotated primarily by Zukertort or by Steinitz--not infrequently both. The book contains around 600 diagrams, about 2 diagrams per game. I think the book can be very useful to three audiences:

* Club players can improve their play by studying these games, which are much more suitable for club players than, say, the subtle games of Vladimir Kramnik or Magnus Carlsen. This audience could even treat the book as a collection of 600 puzzles; just block the text below the diagram, figure out what move should be played and why, then see what Zukertort (or his opponent) played. Many of the puzzles precede a defensive blunder rather than a scintillating attacking move, so you will have opportunities both for attacking and defensive maneuvers--and you will even have to figure out which is necessary.

* Students of chess history will enjoy the excerpts and essays from contemporary journals.

* Stronger club players looking for unfashionable but not unsound opening lines can unearth interesting ideas from the Evans Gambits, Italian Games, and Spanish Games (Ruy Lopez) that Zukertort played.

A fair number of games are not as valuable because they are annotated by nineteenth century journalists or are played with odds (missing a1 rook, missing f7 pawn, etc.). Given the wealth of normal games annotated by leading players of the day, I do not consider this to be a significant problem, particularly because Adams always includes at least one puzzle for you to solve for each odds game. I do wish, however, that Adams had done more to integrate the historical material with the games. They are presented in different sections, so if you want to understand anything about the 1871 second match with Anderssen you are examining, for example, you will have to search the historical material for a while. Nevertheless, the wealth of excellent material still makes this a good value for the club player and the student of chess history.

The publisher provided a review copy of the book in return for my honest review.
