    The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975

    Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event.

Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.

    This is an exact reproduction of the original 1969 classic work, My 60 Memorable Games by Bobby Fischer. Unfortunately, there have been many efforts by other authors and contributors to "improve" on Fischer's work by converting the text into algebraic notation and then correcting what they thought were mistakes in analysis. It turned out that what they thought were mistakes by Fischer were mistakes by themselves. Fischer's analysis was correct. Their's was wrong. As a result, Fischer famously went on the radio to denounce those who claimed to have "improved" on his work.
