To comprise 10 games, it is between Samuel Reshevsky. international grandmaster and the acknowledged champion of the Western world, and Arthur B. Bguicr, currently holder of both national championship titles as well as champion of the Manhattan club. Games will be played on Tuesday and Thursday nights and Sun-da v afternoons throughout July, with the last one scheduled tor July 30. Hans Kmoch will be director and Maurice J. Kasper, president of the Manhattan Club, the referee. After five rounds of play in the Western chess tournament at Milwaukee Larry Evans, former 1'. S. champion, and Donald Bvrne, former national open chamnion, were tied with scores of 5 0. Atilio Hi CamiUo, of Philadelphia, and Hans Berliner, of Washington, were next at 4's-'j. Fourteen others were t'cd at 41. All American chess players are aware of the rapid rise of B'bby Fischer. 11 year-aid Brooklyn lad, to prominence in the game. It may surprise many of them, however, to learn that IVbby recently defeated Samuel Reshevsky, long recognized as our No. 1 player. The score of the game is appended below. Of course Bobby isn't quite as -good as the preceding paragraph might imply. His victory over Reshevsky came in a blindfold simultaneous exhibition by the American ace at the Manhattan Thess Ckib. nlaved at the speed of 10 seconds a move.
