Eliskases and Book: The Forgotten
Compiled by Runemaster
--*--

In the late 1930s, Eliskases was a possible world championship challenger and deserves to be better known; this collection is my tribute to him. Eliskases was strong in all phases of the game and I find his style very attractive.

Book was not at quite the same level of strength, but was arguably the strongest ever Finnish player with some famous scalps to his credit.
