In Chess Praxis Nimzowitsch elaborates on the strategies first adumbrated in My System with a series of deeply annotated games, demonstrating how his principles operated in practice. This was very much a manifesto for the Hypermodern School of Chess which also numbered Hardinge Simpole authors Richard Reti and S.G. Tartakower amongst its ranks.
Aron Nimzowitsch was a World Championship aspirant, who won the Úlite tournaments of Dresden 1926 and Carlsbad 1929, ahead of Alekhine, Capablanca, Rubinstein, Euwe, Spielmann, Bogolyubov and many other luminaries of the day. His victims included Emanuel Lasker, Salo Flohr and Frank Marshall, while his theories were the strategic Bibles for generations of grandmasters to come.
