The roaster of stars spanned generations, crossed political and economic boundaries, and included the women's World Champion, Xie Jun of China, and history's strongest African American chess player, Grandmaster Maurice Ashley of New York. Whether young or old, man or woman, communist or capitalist, there was someone for everyone.
These chmapions from the former Soviet Union, China, England, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and the United States vied for supremacy for two grueling weeks. They produced some of the finest fighting chess ever witnessed in this country, and their analysis of the games fill these pages. It was only fitting that such a competitive event was ultimately won by the greatest fighter of them all, Viktor Korchnoi.

Bxb4 Qxe4+) to refined positional struggles (The Romih Variation 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. Nc3 c6 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 Bb4.)
