    Zoom 001 - Zero Hour for Operative Chess Opening Models
    Catalog Code: B0088IS

    This is the groundbreaking cult classic by the Legendary Grandmaster Bent Larsen and the noted openings theoretician Steffen Zeuthen. Zoom 001 stands for Zero Hour for Operative Opening Models. The principal idea behind Zoom 001 is the creation of ''pattern knowledge'' of typical middle game/endgame structures—one of a grandmaster's essential qualities—cultivated through the use of the Grunfeld and Catalan openings.

    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.

    Church's Fried Chicken First International Chess Tournament
    Catalog Code: B0073IS

    San Antonio 1972 was either the strongest chess tournament ever played in the history of the United States or, if not the very strongest, then second only to New York 1924. What makes this book especially great is not merely was it a great tournament with great players, but that the players annotated some of their own games. In this day and age, there are millions of games in the chess databases, but annotated games are increasingly hard to find.

To inform future generations about such greats as Bobby Fischer and World Champion Garry Kasparov as well as the ''Guys and Dolls'' of the New York Chess scene during the fabled Golden Era of the 1930s and 1940s. In the introduction, five time U.S. Chess Champion writes that the authors capture ''some of the most raucous and colorful figures in 20th century chess'' with a ''Dickensian precision''.

    CLEARANCE - Viktors Pupols - American Master
    Catalog Code: CB0149RB

    This thin volume is an enlarged version of a very lengthy two-part article which appeared in the June and July 1982 issue of Northwest Chess that premier sectional monthly out of Seattle, Washington. Viktor's Pupols is a writer's dream. Pleasantly eccentric in virtually everything he does (and as the reader will soon discover, the owner of a chess style more baroque than Walt Disney's Fantasia), the man is an unstanchable torrent of eloquence.
