    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.

    CLEARANCE - Wijk aan Zee Grandmaster Chess tournament 1975
    Catalog Code: CB0385RB

    With this in mind we commissioned Lubosh Kavalek to write a tournament book for us on one of the very strongest events in 1975, the Grandmaster tournament held in the little Dutch town of Wijk aan Zee. What Kavalek has written will undoubtedly be one of the greatest tournament books of all time. He has not only contributed penetrating analysis to many of the most interesting games played in Wijk aan Zee, he has also written something about every game, giving the reader an insight to the international tournament arena and helping him to understand what makes a chess master tick.

    Great Encounters in Contemporary Chess

    The moment of death has the power to stress in a single move the achievement or the futility of a life. 

    The death of Alekhine contains a paradox. If he had sought happiness, he found something different; if he had wanted fame, his name will live as long as chess is played.
