    Organized to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations' charter in San Francisco in 1945, the tournament combined playing strength and diversity in an unprecedented fashion.

    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.

Six games would be played for over $1 million in prize money.
