    The book is dedicated to one of the greatest chess players in history, participant of the first official world championship match Johann Zuckertort. The highest point of his brilliant career was the triumph at the largest international tournament in London in 1883, where he took first place, ahead of three (!) Points took second place Wilhelm Steinitz. In the subsequent match for the world championship, Zuckertort was leading with a score of 4: 1, and, according to many experts, only health problems prevented him from becoming the world's first official world champion. The book, in fact, is divided into two parts. The first consists of the best articles and fragments, the authors of which are mostly people who knew Zuckertort well, and gives a full picture of his personality. In the second and the main part of the book, the most complete collection of parties (more than 300), commented mainly on himself, as well as his famous rivals, is presented to the present day & ndash; Steinitz, Chigorin, etc. The continuing value of Zukertort's creativity is evidenced by the fact that many of his parties were commented on subsequently by the fifth world champion Max Euwe. I. Tsukertort, a disciple of the uncrowned world champion A. Andersen, was an adherent of romantic, combinational chess. His party will undoubtedly help you to improve your skills and get pleasure from genuine masterpieces of chess art.
