      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.
