Jurka, Miroslav / Jurkova, Alena / Zavodny, Zdenek: Mat ve stredni hre.  Brno, self-edition of Alena Jurkova, 2015. Orig. hardcover with no dust jacket, as issued. 150 + 32 + (4) pages, many b/w and color photos in text. In Czech. Size 20 cm. The weight 350 grams.

Miroslav Jurka was one of the strongest chess players in Brno, Czechia. He died prematurely at the age of 49.

The book was privately published in a small edition by Alena Jurkova (Miroslav Jurka’s wife). The book was never offered in the bookshops, it was available only for friends and colleagues. I was told that circulation was only 30 copies – however this fact is not stated in the book.

The book includes:

  • about 50 annotated games, many of them by Jurka himself
  • a set of ca 30 short chess articles written by him
  • full text of his booklet Jezkovite struktury (written in 1992)
  • Jurka’s life story
  • bio and remembrances of his family and chess friends
  • color and bw photos, etc.

The book title means in English „Mate in the middlegame“.
