Taking critical openings as his standpoint - the Ruy Lopez - Queen's Gambit - English Opening and King's Gambit - König shows how chess technique advanced and became more sophisticated from the days of Morphy to the time of Botvinnik. This is a book with much painstaking research, both a joy to read and also a valuable instructional manual for those who wish to improve, broaden and hone their strategic skills. Imre König was one of the most travelled of international masters, and represented Hungary,Yugoslavia, England and the USA. His best result was second prize at Hastings 1948/49 - behind Rossolimo but ahead of fellow Hardinge Simpole author Bob Wade.
