OSTENDE 1906, Tony Gillam, Yorklyn, 2005, hardback, 445 pages. Finally this complex and great tournament appears just about one hundred years after it occurred. Schlechter won by a slight margin in a very complicated series of qualifying sections. Gillam worked hard with a dedicated band of helpers to track down all the known games, graced in most cases with notes, of that era. Many great players such as Lasker, Schlechter, Burn, contributed annotations. Also included are photos of most of the players plus photos of the great "Kursall" on the boardwalk at the resort city of Ostende plus a photo with the autographs of all the tournament contestants. Two slight books with only a tiny fraction of the games were published just after the tournament in the German language, but they hardly did justice to this strong event and are scarce collectors items today. $49

KASPAROV VS. DEEP BLUE 1997, Goodman & Keene, Cambridge, Mass. 1997. A really fascinating book for a match where a computer finally wins against a very strong human.

GILLAM SERIES OF TOURNAMENT AND MATCH BOOKS: Tony Gillam of Nottingham, England, has probably published more tournament books than anyone else in history—somewhere in the vicinity of 200, without my actually counting them. In this, his latest series, beginning about 9 years ago, there are the following, most of which are quite important in providing the only readily accessible published record of the event in one place. They have been published in small editions, and once gone, may well not be published again for some time to come. In the majority of cases not all the games could be found, but after painstaking research it was a question of publishing all that could be found or publishing nothing. Many are important events including ones with World Champions, World Champions-to-be, or ex-World Champions. I call this series his "orange series" (due to the color of the paper) to distinguish it from his much earlier (ca. 1962-1976) series of then current tournaments which numbered about 120. For the most part, notes are given to games where such were available in the literature. All are paperback editions, mint, the later ones having plastic protective jackets.
