German master Kurt Richter (1900–1969) made significant contributions to the chess world as a player, and as an editor and author. Unassuming in real life, Richter was a fearsome opponent who expressed himself mainly through his over-the-board results, as well as through his chess journalism and literary output. He was responsible for several innovative openings, some of which gained renewed status in later years.
This overview of his life and games sheds light on a player who should be better known, with much never-before-seen material. Examples of his entertaining writings on chess are included, some featuring his fictitious student opponent, Dr. Zabel. A wide selection of games illustrates the surprising combinations and brilliant style of play that earned him the title “The Executioner of Berlin.”


This is the first work in English devoted to the life and games of a significant figure in German chess.

Kurt Richter (1900-1969) won the Berlin championship many times, was German champion in 1935, and represented his country in the Olympiads at Hamburg 1930, Prague 1931 and Munich 1936. He was awarded the International Master title in 1950.

Although he had numerous over-the-board successes, Richter was more interested in how individual games were played, rather than his place in the tournament table. And although a large number of games are offered (wins, draws and losses), the book is intended to present a much broader picture of its subject.

Richter was also known for his chess journalism. He helped edit three major German chess periodicals – Schachwart, Deutsche Schachblätter and Deutsche Schachzeitung – and he conducted a popular column in Schach from 1953 until his death. His numerous books helped to popularise the game, particularly those dealing with combinations and the middlegame.

The book includes 93 photos/illustrations - most of which have never before been seen in a chess publication - appendices (tournament results, reviews of his favourite openings), notes, bibliography and indexes.
