Gyula Breyer: The Chess Revolutionary
Gyula Breyer (1893-1921) won the championship of his native country Hungary and achieved remarkable results against the leading players of his day. But first and foremost, he was a revolutionary in his chess thinking. After his death, however, he was omitted from most of the chess history books.
Jimmy Adams has unlocked Breyer’s legacy from the archives and made it accessible to the chess world at large.
This monumental book presents 242 of his games and 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.
