Produktinformationen "Gyula Breyer - The Chess Revolutionary"

Gyula Breyer (1893-1921) was a highly successful and imaginative chess player. He won the championship of his native country Hungary as a teenager and achieved remarkable results against the leading players of his day.

But first and foremost, Breyer was a revolutionary in his chess thinking. He promoted the idea of dynamic chess and formulated many of the Hypermodern concepts, long before others started their investigations. Yet, after his death, he was omitted from most of the chess history books and today is only known for the Breyer variation, an ever popular defence against the Ruy Lopez.

However, Jimmy Adams has now unlocked Breyer’s legacy from the archives and made it accessible to the chess world at large. This monumental book presents 240 of his games, annotated by Breyer himself and many others. It also features a large number of articles, columns and fragments from newspapers, magazines and books, sparkling with chess and literary wit. The majority appear in English for the first time – and indeed in any language other than Hungarian.

By piecing together this material in chronological order, Jimmy Adams has constructed a mesmerizing biography covering Gyula Breyer’s intense, unconventional and ultimately tragic life. Included as well is a collection of his chess problems, some of which are truly amazing.

GM Raymond Keene:
"In terms of importance this book ranks at the top with Kasparov's ‎various mega series, Nimzowitsch's ‘My System’ and Alekhine's books of his best games. Games, notes, discreet modern corrections, scholarly research, history, theory and perhaps most impressive ‎of all, Breyer's Philosophy of the art, science and sport of chess!"

CHESS Magazine (UK):
"The Hypermoderns owed much to Breyer, as becomes clear in this fine, detailed biography."


“A stupendous new book, one of those rare events that represent milestones in chess publishing history.”
Grandmaster Raymond Keene, The Times

“It is hard to see how this book could be improved.”
Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine (UK)
