About This Item

79 pages with diagrams, tables and index. Octavo (8 1/4" x 6") bound in black cloth with gilt lettering to spine with original wrappers bound in. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5405) First edition.

The second Mikhail Chigorin Memorial international tournament was held in the winter of 1947 in the Soviet capital of Moscow. Ten of the USSR's best chess masters were pitted against six strong masters from Eastern Europe in what would be one of the strongest post-war tournaments leading up to the 1948 World Championship. Mikhail Botvinnik finished clear first with an impressive 11/15. He was joined by six fellow soviets at the top of the table. Of the foreign masters, only Pachman (Czechoslovakia) and Trifunovic (Yugoslavia) managed to score more than 50%, finishing in the middle of the pack. Gligoric (Yugoslavia) finished 10th; Kottnauer (Czechoslovakia) 13th, Plater (Poland) shared 14th; and Tsvetkov (Bulgaria) ended up in 16th and last place. This event was also notable in that it revived a series that had languished for almost half a century. The first Chigorin Memorial international tournament had been held in St. Petersburg (1909), a year after Chigorin's death.
