Championship Chess Stevens Dy BLAKE STEVENS ^ - South Western Open Chess Champion G. M. Kasparyan is the author of last week's problem. The manner manner in which Black becomes tied up is highly original. 1 N-K8, N-N3! (The Ihrcat was 1 N-N7ch, K-N3; 3 B-B5 male. If 1 ... P-D4; 2 BxP followed by 3 N-N7 mate.); 2 P-R5 ch!, RxP (This m o v e Is forced as 2 . . KxP would nllow 3 N-N7 ch and 4 B-B5 mate); 3 P-B5 ch, RxP; 4 P-N4 (the intention intention S BxR mate Is clear), R-B4; 5 B-B5ch!, RxB; 6 N-N7! 1 (a quiet but devastating devastating move), either Rook moves; 7 PxR male! Bobby Fischer, nge 15, the youngest player to win the U.S. championship is half way through the Interzonal tournament being JieJd at Portoroz, Yugoslavia. His score at this writing is S 1 /^^ and includes draws with Bronslein, Aurbacli, Neikirch, and Panno and wins against Fuster, Sanguin- ctti, anil Lnrsen. Me is in a tie for fourth place. If his results prove poorly in the final half of the tournament, which is difficult to believe possible, possible, he will still have proven that he is a player of caliber and no 90 day wonder. One of the leaders of this tournament tournament is M. Tal of Russia, who has won the U.S.S.R. championship twice running. As of this writing, Bobby Fischer has yet to play Tal. Belli are fierce attacking players. The following game gives a good account of the Russian. A middle-game tussle develops in which combinations and counter- combinations follow in quick succession. succession. Black secures active play for his rooks and White battles against him tenaciously with a pair of hardworking bishops as a main mobile force. v s F n iim OLD DUTCH D K F K N S K W h i l e Rluek I P-QBI 3 N-KB3 4 K'H.1 f i P - K N S C n-Na 1 O O X 4R-KI k t f t V - K I 19 1 I I RxN 13 q-KZ e IS ?k Q r e '" 15 B B1 t N - R 4 17 R i B IK Q-K.t f« P-N5 J l K-q?c^ (h) Zi P-B4?
