Long ago, it was considered a game reserved only for kings and members of the upper classes. Nowadays, chess is played by common people even at an early age.The modern design of chess pieces bears the name Staunton, who was an English master in the mid-18OO's. These are the type of pieces that are now used in all tournaments worldwide.The first international chess tournament was the London Tourney played in 1851. A German named AdolfAnderssen won the game. He became the unofficial best chess player of the world because he did not receive any award or title.

PART I: WHAT TO KNOW

The first great American-born chess player is Paul Morphy. Paul traveled to Europe in the 185O's, where he beat all challengers, including Adolf Anderssen. However, the English champion of the time (Staunton) refused to play with him, so Morphy never became a world chess champ. The first official championship chess tournament was played in 1866 in London, with sand clocks to restrict the length of a game. A Bohemian (Czechoslovakian) Jew named Steinitz won the game. He became the world's first official chess champion, holding this title until 1894. Have you wondered who rules in the world of chess today? Recently, Russia dominates the game of chess. This results from the establishment of government schools for talented chess players after the communist revolution of 1917. Since 1927, many of the top chess players have been citizens of the former USSR, and include: Tal, Alekhine, Petrosian, Spassky, Smyslov, AnatoliKarpov, and Gary Kasparov.
