      1958 interzonal Chess Tournament Portoroz
      Catalog Code: B0212IS

      The 1958 Interzonal Chess Tournament in Portoroz was one of the most important and strongest tournaments in chess history, and is still regularly discussed in chess circles today. This is the tournament where the 15-year-old Bobby Fischer earned the grandmaster title and first became a contender for the World Chess Championship. It is also the tournament where Mikhail Tal finally got his first chance to compete in a grandmaster tournament outside of the Soviet Union, and started one of the longest non-losing streaks in chess history on his march to the World Chess Championship.

      1974 Chess Olympiad
      Catalog Code: CB0014XX

      The Biennial Chess Olympiad is the official World Team Championship and rivals the individual World Championship as the premier event in the chess calendar. The 1974 Olympiad, which took place at Nice on the French Riviera, had a record entry of 74 national teams. The Soviet Union once again captured the gold medal, the USA, without Fischer, made their best result for eight years to win the bronze medal behind Yugoslavia in second place.

      This book covers the story of the Olympiad with 130 annotated games, nearly half of them annotated by Grandmasters, complete tables of team performances in both the preliminary and the final groups, tables of every individual result of every player and the results of all past Olympiads.

      AVRO 1938 - The Ultimate Chess Tournament
      Catalog Code: CB0097CD

      In 1938, a major controversy existing in the international chess world. Alexander Alekhine had recently regained the title of World Champion by convincingly defeating Max Euwe in a rematch for the title. The question remained as to which grandmaster should have the privilege of challenging Alekhine for the next title match. Various players citing excellent results in recent tournaments made claim to be the next challenger. But who was the second best player in the world?

      In order to help settle this dispute, a Dutch radio company, Allgemeese Vereningun Radio-Omroep (A.V.R.0.) organized a tournament exclusively of the eight strongest players in the world at the time, with the belief that the winner of the tournament, if not Alekhine himself, would earn the right to the next World Chess Championship.

      This book describes, in detail, that tournament, the circumstances that lead up to it, the participants and their games, as well as the results of the legendary, but under-appreciated tournament.
