      Catalog Code: B0075IS

      To help bring to the United States chess of the highest quality in the world, Mrs. Gregor Piatigorsky and her husband, the world renowned cellist, created the Piatigorsky Cup as a symbol of excellence in chess. Along with the trophy went the finest playing conditions and the highest prizes ever offered for any chess event. For the first time since 1932, a world chess champion appeared in an American tournament when Tigran Petrosian, USSR, joined seven other of the greatest international grandmasters in a month of competition at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

      Phillips and Drew/GLC Kings 1980 was one of the great chess events. London was a desert for international tournament chess from 1948-1973. In 1975 there was the Evening Standard London Chess Fortnight. Although these were fine events and very valuable to English chess; they could not be compared with the events in Hastings and Teesside.

      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.

      The London International tournament of 1883 was the strongest tournament ever held in the world up until that time. It was considered to be a tournament for the World Chess Championship. It featured the strongest players in the world of that time. Steinitz, Zukertort , Blackburne, Chigorin, Mackenzie, Mason, Winawar and possibly English would be considered grandmasters on the modern standard. Rosenthal, Bird and even Noa would be international masters.

      Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same. What is it that makes this book so much better than the others? Is it the deep analysis, the explanation of the ideas or is it the personality of the author himself in his exuberant explanations of how the struggle creates art.

      This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.

      Rubinstein's Chess Masterpieces
      100 Selected Games
      Catalog Code: B0199IS

      Akiba Rubinstein was born on 12 December 1882 in Poland. He has long been regarded as the strongest chess player in history who never became world champion. A recent trivia quiz appeared in Chess Life Magazine: Who is the player who defeated Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine the first time he played each of them.

      The answer was of course Akiba Rubinstein.

      Rubinstein won five tournaments in a row during the period 1912-1914. There is little doubt that he was the strongest player in the world at that time.

      Rubinstein's contribution to chess opening theory has been enormous. Almost every major chess opening has a Rubinstein Variation or a Rubinstein Defense. Think about it: There is no Fischer Defense, no Capablanca Defense. But there are many variations called the Rubinstein Defense or Variation. Only Steinitz has as many openings named after him, but the Steinitz Defenses are no longer played.

      This volume has important events related to California chess. By 1955, the states highways had been improved to the point where car travel became feasible between Northern and Southern California. So it’s no surprise that the 1955 56th U.S. Open, held in Long Beach, became the strongest and richest up to that time. GM Nicolas Rossolimo won the 1955 Buick over GM Sammy Reshevsky on tie-breaking points; Sammy had to be content with the $1,000 1st prize. The biggest shock in California chess history was IM Herman Steiner’s sudden and totally unexpected heart attack during the 1955 California State Championship. Herman was a handsome, energetic, larger than life presence, who attracted many the chess playing Hollywood elite. The passing of the former U.S. Champion and Editor of the Los Angeles Times chess column (since 1933) left a void in Southern California chess which has never been filled. Bobby Fischer’s first California appearance in 1957 was the San Francisco U.S. Junior. Bobby, the 14-year old defending champion, scored 8.5 points to beat out San Francisco’s own 17-year old Gilbert Ramirez, who was the California State Champion and California Open Champion. Of course, the Reporter covered Fischer’s first U.S. Championship win

      William Addison became director of the Chess Room at the Mechanics Institute in 1965. 1964-1967 saw more sweeping victories for future grandmaster Duncan Suttles. Paul Quillen got out of prison for long enough to win several important events. Jacqueline Piatigorsky organized a Second Piatigorsky Cup in 1966 with ten of the strongest players in the world competing. Two major events new were established: The National Open in Las Vegas started in 1964 and the American Open in Los Angeles stated in 1965. Both are still being played annually today. Cover Photo shows Tibor Weinberger (front left) playing Henry Gross in the game for the 1959 California Open Championship. Henry Gross had won his first five games and only needed to draw this game with white to clench the state title. Instead, he played too cautiously and Weinberger won the game in the title. In the background, Roger Smook (left) plays Gil Ramirez. The winner would have tied for first, but instead the game ended in a draw

      The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 7
      July 1964 - June 1967
      Catalog Code: B0193IS

      Chess historians and collectors consider the California Chess Reporter the gold standard for California chess magazines. It has combined all the pertinent information that a chess historian looks for: who played in what tournament, club or league, when and where it was played, and, of course, the game scores. The match results, club results, league results, tournament cross tables, and game scores that appeared every month for both Northern and Southern California answered all of these criteria and more. In 1967-1971 chess activity increased throughout the state. No longer were players playing primarily for the honor and the glory. They wanted the money. Class tournaments started being held, where players would compete in the Class A, Class B or Class C sections for big cash prizes

      Rubinstein Gewinnt! - GERMAN EDITION
      Hundert Glanzpartien des grossen Schachkunstlers
      Catalog Code: B0198IS

      This is not merely a great book. It is an important piece of chess history, because the author Hans Kmoch visited the Rubinstein Family Home in 1933 in an effort to get the great grandmaster of chess to return to active play. When Rubinstein could not be induced to return, his family who was living in dire poverty asked Kmoch for help in raising funds. The result was an ad placed asking to finance this book on a subscription basis. The result was a book entitled “Rubinstein gewinnt! : Hundert Glanzpartien des grossen Schachknstlers. Erläutert von Hans Kmoch. Biographische Einleitung von Jacques Hannak. Verlag der Wiener Schachzeitung, Wien 1933

      July-August 1974 to May-June 1976
      Catalog Code: B0220IS

      This is the last volume of California Chess Reporter and it contains the last issue of this publication, May-June 1976 issue. The last issue explains the reason why the publication was closing down. At the 1976 Delegates meeting of the US Chess Federation, a motion had been made to split the state of California in two for chess purposes. This had passed without significant debate or opposition. Similar motions had often been made at meetings of the California State Chess Federation and had repeatedly been voted down. The USCF Delegates seemingly knew nothing about this; it seems that nobody from Northern California was on-hand to explain the consequences of their proposed action
