This event (January-February 1930) marks a peak period in Alekhine's tournament career. Neither before nor after was a tournament of such strength won by a score of 14 out of 15 - in fact, nobody has ever remotely approached this achievement, except Bobby Fischer when he won the US Championship with a perfect score. Alekhine 14, Nomzowitsch, 10 1/2, Rubinstein 10 and Bogoljubow 9 1/2. The other remarkable feature of San Remo was the extraordinary number of profound and beautiful games played not only by the winner but also by a number of his rivals.
Lightly soiled, some rubbing to extremities else a very good copy.
