A talk and book-signing by Jon Edwards

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


In Sacking the Citadel, the author traces the classic bishop sacrifice on h2 (or h7) throughout chess history. First recorded by Italian chess master Gioachino Greco more than four hundred years ago, it has remained relevant ever since and continues to get reinterpreted by chess players of all levels.

Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999. He became a Senior International Master (SIM) in 1999. His ICCF rating of 2580 placed him in the top 200 correspondence chess players worldwide.
