CHESS PROBLEM No. 510 By A. H- Goulty (Bowdon). . . Black (8), mi mi i m mi . mm mm mm. m White (8) White mates in two moves. SOLUTION No. 50 IDrh.rl: 1 KI-QS (ihreal 2 Q-B6). P-Q5; 2 Ki(Q6 x P. or 1 . . . KxKt; 2 KUP or 1 . . K-Q5: 2KUQ2) I P. A line key and an original idea, witb a change of tet mate after T . . P-Q5 The U.S. championship It is one thing for an underestimated young player to put up a single outstanding performance, quite another for him to repeat it when all his opponents are making an extra effort. Yet Bobby Fischer, aged 15. has done so in retaining the United States championship without loss of a game. Among the also-rans were Reshevsky. who is often regarded as the world's best grandmaster outside Russia, and Benko. who is. like Fischer one of the last eight in the world title eliminating tournament. The result in New York indicates that Fischer ought to put up a- good showing this autumn against Smyslov, Tal. .and company. His best - wins were in long endings, so here is another all-grandmaster game from the tournament. While: Erans. Black; Blsnulcr. PETROFF DEFENCE White 1. P-KJ 2. Kt-KB3 Black P-K4 Kt-KB3 While 15.

Like all litlle-playet ""peninas. its sting lies in its surprise. 3. Black Is too ambitious. Sounder la 5 . B-K2. 4. After this loss of time. Black's troubles increase. 6 . . Kt X Kt: 7 QP x Kt. P-QB3 would still lead to a harmless position. 5. This quiet development increases the looseness of Black's position. If now 9 . . B-K3: 10 Castles. QP x P; 11 B x P. B x B: 12 O x OB. Kt x Kt; 13 R-Kl ch. fi. Forced, but very strong. 7. White is virtually two tempi ahead, so it is not surprising that other continuations are also inadequate. If 10 . . B X Kt; 11 P X B.

There , no 'mmediaie combination, so White proceeds to eliminate Black's best defensive piece Since Black s playing virtually a rook down, the rule that exchanges benefit the defender docs not apply here. 13. Black has no option but to grab and hope for the best, for otherwise comes 22 R-QB1 followed by R-B7 14. The only square; tor If 23 0-Q5: 24 Q-K18 ch. B-Kl; 25 B-B6. 15. This loses at once, but Black's position IS very difficult. The best chance is to make a flight for the king by 25 , P-KKt3; after which a plausible line is 26 Q x P. C P: 27 Q-KI4 ch.
