Σκακιστικός πυρετός (1925)


Κατά τη διάρκεια ενός διεθνούς σκακιστικού τουρνουά, ένας νεαρός άντρας συνεπαίρνεται εντελώς από το παιχνίδι. Η αρραβωνιαστικία του όμως δεν σγκινείται καθόλου από το παιχνίδι, εκνευρίζεται και μελαγχολεί απο την αδιαφορία που της δείχνει. Αλλά οπου και να πάει, δεν μπορεί να ξεφύγει από το σκάκι, που το βρίσκει μπροστά της παντού. Και ενώ είναι έτοιμη να εγκαταλείψει τη προσπάθεια συναντά τον ίδιο τον παγκόσμιο πρωταθλητή Capablanca, με ενδιαφέροντα αποτελέσματα.
