Fourth World Chess Champion

 

 Alexander Alekhine was the fourth World Chess Champion. He lived from October 31, 1892 to March 14, 1946. Alekhine was a Russian world chess champion. He became the fourth world chess champion when he beat José Raúl Capablanca in 1927 and defended his title until 1935 when he was defeated by Euwe. Later on Alexander Alekhine regained his crown playing for France in the 1937 rematch and reigned until his death in 1946.

 

Alekhine was an exceptional attacking player. What set him apart from nearly all other attacking players was his capability of seeing a potential for an attack and prepare for it when others saw nothing. Many people consider him the greatest attacking player of all time. He is also famous for the defense that bears his name.

 

Alexander Alekhine was a prolific writer. He wrote many books about his own matches and games. Alekhine was unfortunate in his timing for arranging  and playing world championship matches; in 1914 his match was interrupted by the outbreak of World War I, and he was interned in Germany. A similar situation suspended negotiations for another match when World War II began.
