    Book Description

    Reuben Fine was both one of the world's strongest grandmasters of chess and one of the world's leading authorities on psychoanalysis. In this book, he combines the two disciplines. This Fischer-Spassky book is really three books in one: An analysis of the games (straight chess analysis, with no psychology), a psychoanalytic study of the two players in the match, especially of Fischer whom Fine had met many times when Fischer was a boy, and a correction of the historical record from 1938 to 1948, because it was during this period that little chess was played because of World War II, and the controversies associated with the deaths of the World Champion and several other top grandmasters, during which time Fine himself had a claim on being called the World Chess Champion.

      San Antonio 1972 was either the strongest chess tournament ever played in the history of the United States or, if not the very strongest, then second only to New York 1924. What makes this book especially great is not merely was it a great tournament with great players, but that the players annotated some of their own games. In this day and age, there are millions of games in the chess databases, but annotated games are increasingly hard to find.
