    The Lone Pine tournaments were the strongest and most prestigious Swiss System tournaments in the world during the ten year period from 1971 to 1980. This RHM Series of high quality chess books was the brain child of Sidney Fried (born 22 June 1919 - died 1 June 1991). Sidney Fried was not a strong player but was an aficionado or big fan of chess.

    • Grandmaster Chess
      The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975 Catalog Code: B0055IS
      Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.

      An Account of the Lessing Rosenwald Tournament - NY 1954-1955 Catalog Code: B0056IS
      Trophy Chess was one of Bobby Fischer's favorite books. He studied it with great care during his sudden appearance right after this tournament and his rapid rise to the top, culminating in his winning his first of eight US Chess Championships in 1957/58. It is nicely laid out and designed and is easy to read. In his famous "My 60 Memorable Games" Fischer later collaborated with Evans, who served as his second during his rise to the world championship and became one of America's best-selling chess authors with over 20 books to his credit.

      To help bring to the United States chess of the highest quality in the world, Mrs. Gregor Piatigorsky and her husband, the world renowned cellist, created the Piatigorsky Cup as a symbol of excellence in chess. Along with the trophy went the finest playing conditions and the highest prizes ever offered for any chess event. For the first time since 1932, a world chess champion appeared in an American tournament when Tigran Petrosian, USSR, joined seven other of the greatest international grandmasters in a month of competition at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
