An Account of the Lessing Rosenwald Tournament - NY 1954-1955
Trophy Chess was one of Bobby Fischer's favorite books. He studied it with great care during his sudden appearance right after this tournament and his rapid rise to the top, culminating in his winning his first of eight US Chess Championships in 1957/58. It is nicely laid out and designed and is easy to read. In his famous ''My 60 Memorable Games'' Fischer later collaborated with Evans, who served as his second during his rise to the world championship and became one of America's best-selling chess authors with over 20 books to his credit.
'In this book, we shall provide the student with an unbeatable system for the white pieces after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3. We teach you how to play against the Hungarian Defense, the Philidor Defense, the Latvian Gambit, and the Petroff Defenses. This gets us to the main lines, the Three Knights and Four Knights Game with the Belgrade Gambit included(the 1st time GM Evans ever recommended a gambit!). These 'hold the draw in hand and go for the win' openings have been researched like never before. There is more dynamic play, for those that know them, than ever realized. Here is something to build on if later in your career you want to head for the Giuoco Piano or Ruy Lopez.'' - Ken Smith.
