      The Louis D. Statham Chess Tournaments - 1971-1980 Catalog Code: B0051IS
      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.
