Tarrasch was the dominant force in European chess in the early 1890's and his ability to win top level tournaments continued via his huge triumph at Vienna 1898 on to the "World Tournament Championship" of Ostend 1907. Tarrasch was rightly regarded as the teacher of generations of European and world Masters , hence his title Praeceptor Germaniae - the Professor from Germany. His victories in individual games included wins against Capablanca, Alekhine, Lasker, Nimzowitsch , Tchigorin , Pillsbury , Steinitz and more. Each of Tarrasch's games is a lesson in method and accuracy in itself, hence his wins are superb teaching models for the aspiring chess student. Fred Reinfeld was a renaissance man, with interests in politics, numismatics and chess. On the latter subject he was known as the man of 100 books, with scholarly essays on Capablanca, Nimzowitsch and - here- Tarrasch to his credit. As a master active on the US chess scene Reinfeld drew with Alekhine and defeated Reshevsky.
