1)  Introduction
----------------

My thanks to Kevin O'Connell for the games from Madrid, Leon and
corrections from Dos Hermanas. To Otto Borik with the games from
the Kasparov TV exhibition match. To Vadim Kaminsky for the news
from the US (and Ben Feingold too), to Josef Zahner, Piotr Nestorow,
Einar Karlsson, Eric Schiller, Brian Stephenson, Egon Ditt, Michael
Niermann for their sections. To Breanndan, Paul Rubin, Tim Krabbe,
and Paul A. van Linde for indicative postings about Amsterdam.
(Hope that I haven't left anyone out!)

There aren't many weeks with so much top class action, but also
there has been much of interest outside Spain and the Netherlands
too.

It was with particular pleasure that I saw Korchnoi showing
everyone he is still a major force in World Chess.

Kasparov has had a week to forget, but there aren't many people
for whom second in a category 18 tournament is bad. But his
half from 3 in the second cycle of the Amsterdam tournament
would not have pleased him, certainly from his point of view
he would regard these losses as self-inflicted.

I hope you enjoy this issue, next week is bound to be quieter!

2) VSB Euwe Memorial Tournament 12th - 18th May 1995
-----------------------------------------------------

Kasparov will remember this tournament for a long time. An event
he should have won easily turned into a nightmare due to two
losses. It was the result of a great player playing badly rather
than anything else. These losses overshadowed three fine Kasparov
wins, two against Topalov and one against Piket.

For Joel Lautier this is his greatest triumph. This was an immensely
determined performance, right down to his saving of a poor position
in the last round to take first place clearly. Both Piket and Kasparov
performed about 100 rating points below their normal strength, Lautier
took home all but 3 of them.

Kasparov put both losses down to him forgetting his analysis.
He claims that 16. e5! would have won against Lautier in round
4. (and indeed it appears that this continuation is extremely
promising) That doesn't really explain why he played the attack
with such lack of energy subsequently though. Against Piket
he tried to use his extensive research that he conducted when
playing Karpov. Here 19...Re4?, was an error, which Piket punished
in fine style. Kasparov seems to remember this move from his analysis
as being correct but is either mistaken or has now forgotten this
analysis. There was a time when Kasparov used to work this out at
the board anyway.

My birthday is on May 16th and rather strangely that has been the
date for two of Kasparov's worst losses of recent years. (last
year he was lost after 12 moves against Ivanchuk, this year he
lost to Lautier.) Kasparov is known to believe in lucky numbers,
I wonder what he has against this date!

3) IV Torneo Magistral de la Comunidad de Madrid - 9th - 19th May 1995
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Venue: ONCE Buildings in Madrid.
Sponsor: "Movi line" (Spanish Mobile phone company)

The return of Viktor the terrible. Over 60 (born 1931.03.23) and still
playing a tournament schedule that puts his younger rivals to shame.
He won this event by starting like a train. He was on 6.5/8 going into
the last round before Polgar slightly spoiled his tournament. Nevertheless
he still works harder and plays more than most and this victory in
this strong category 16 event would grace most players' careers.

Salov also had a most satisfactory event after a drastic loss of form
starting with his loss to Gata Kamsky in the FIDE Candidates Final.

Beliavsky, Short and Timman had very poor tournaments. The latter two
don't seem to have recovered from their World Title matches in 1993.

Pablo San Segundo has played in very many of the Spanish tournaments
over the last few years. He has not even come close to the excellent
result here where he scored a second GM norm and performed to 2645
(his rating is 2480)  However he has now completed his information
engineering course so he may be able to reproduce this result again.

My thanks to Kevin O`Connell for sending me the games throughout this
event. He was there with his "Intelligent Chess Display system"
which displays the games live to the spectators by means of special
boards which detect where the pieces have gone. A natural by-product
of which is that the games should be totally accurate. (something
not always true of a players scoresheet!)

4) VIII Torneo Ciudad de Leon - 7th - 17 May 1995.
-------------------------------------------------

Three major events going on at the same time is still quite unusual.
Even more strange was that two of them were in Spain. Also Dos Hermanas
was immediately prior to this event. This event was slightly weaker than
the other two, but Category XIV isn't bad. This can only benefit Spanish
chess in the long term. Here Jesus De la Villa Garcia was the only
Spanish player to do well. One would question the wisdom of inviting
Marcelino Sion Castro who was rated 2390, playing in such tournaments
does little for the development of a player, and his 1/9 may very well
effect his confidence.

After his disaster in Dos Hermanas, Shirov will be relieved to have put
in a good showing. He was caught in the last round by Bareev, who hasn't
had a good result in a while either.

Adams will also be glad to have come to Spain. Two good results in a row
may finally spur him out of his depression following his two Candidates
match defeats. Akopian shared third with Adams too with a good performance.
Ivan Morovic Fernandez also gained rating points, but I believe he is
better than 2575 anyhow.

Ivan Sokolov, who keeps promising much, had a bad tournament, he lacks
consistancy, but on top form he is still one of the World's best.
(at Interpolis last year he looked very good.)

My thanks again to Kevin O`Connell who, quite without warning, sent me
all the games from the event.

6) Rapidchess Exhibition Match : Chess Genius X /Pentium vs Gary Kasparov
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This televised revenge match was between Kasparov and the machine/program
combination that he lost to in London in the Grand Prix earlier this
year. One is tempted to call it a match between the forth-best rapidplay
chessplayer in the World and  machine match. The hype extended further
than that. There was a report on Radio 5 Live in the UK which, whilst
stressing the Pentium nature of the contest, neglected to mention the
chess playing program at all. To them it was World Champion vs Pentium.

The event was, in part, probably a dry run for the live TV coverage
of the Anand - Kasparov INTEL PCA World final in September. So German
readers can probably expect Hort and Pfleger to provide the expert
commentary on the match. WDR covered this event I'm unsure about
which channel has the rights to the World Final.

The games were over either 30 minutes per side or 45 minutes per side,
I have conflicting reports on this. Kasparov was flat lost in the
first game but somehow created excellent chances and won. In the second
game he played very cautiously to achieve the draw. The PR consequences
of drawing or losing the match seemed to weigh upon him.

My thanks to Otto Borik for the games.

7) FIDE News
-----------

According to Egon Ditt there was a FIDE Executive-Council-Meeting on
the 22nd-23rd April. Some decisions were:

The Council entrusted Kouatly, Prof. Jungwirth and Toran to negotiate
with Karpov (and I presume Kamsky) over the rules for the contest.

the deadline for bids (Karpov - Kamsky as well as Xie Yun - Zs. Polgar)
was set to 30.6.1995.

The Council also accepted an offer of the Russian Chess Federation to
host Russia - Rest of the World at 10 boards in December in Moscow.
Three members were asked to make proposals for the world-team.

The Interzonal Tournament will be hosted by Armenia at Erevan; the date
is not quite clear (because Russia wants first to have the national
championship in December 1995), but should be in September/October
1995 (or in March/April 1996). In any case, the Council does not
want to damage any of the big events like Horgen or Linares.

8) PCA News
------------

The 1995 Intel World Chess Grand Prix in New York City was originally
announced in to take place from June 15-June 18 (June 95 edition of Chess
Life).   The 4 day event, however, is now scheduled to take place during
the period June 20 - June 23, 1995 at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center (at
Borough of Manhattan Community College) 199 Chambers Street.   The July
edition of Chess Life will announce the correct dates.

10) National Open, Las Vegas, May 5-7.
--------------------------------------

Vadim Kaminsky sends me the following news from Compuserve:

IM Ben Finegold reports:
----------------------------------
1-3   Julian Hodgson (winner on tiebreak), Walter Browne, Tal Shaked - 5.5 each.
$3000 each.

4-13  Larry Remlinger, Igor Ivanov, Gregory Kaidanov, Joel Benjamin, William
Kelleher, Mariano, Joe Bradford, Nick deFirmian, Victor Frias and one other
which I'll post tomorrow when I unpack! - 5 each. $210 each.

I lost in round 5 to Tal Shaked.  As I had 3.5 out of 5, I decided to withdraw.
Unfortunately, I was paired anyway due to a mixup within the directing staff
(some knew I withdrew, others did not!) and my opponent won on forfeit (I didn't
know I was paired!) and a class prize as well.

Other strong participants who left with no cash were: Yermolinsky, Kudrin, D
Gurevich, A Ivanov, C Lakdawala, Goldin, Bisguier, Shamkovich, Denker, Palatnik,
Fedorowicz, etc.

Hodgson beat Josh Waitzkin and Joel Benjamin, while Browne beat Dlugy and Frias.
Browne and Hodgson drew quickly in the last round.  Tal Shaked beat Finegold
(yes, me) and Mariano (I don't know his first name, but he was second in the
blitz tournament and has a 2510 USCF rating).

Yermo drew his first two rounds against experts and withdrew.  Goldin lost to a
2250 in round 2 and also withdrew.  Dlugy lost to Browne, A Ivanov lost to
Bisguier, Bisguier lost to Benjamin, Frias lost to Browne, Kudrin and D Gurevich
both lost to Mariano, Joe Bradford drew Kaidanov and Kudrin with the black
pieces.

There were about 250 players in the Open section, with 17-18 GMs and 10-15 IMs.

15) Studies Book Review by Brian Stephenson
-------------------------------------------

Secrets of Spectacular Chess, by Jonathan Levitt and David Friedgood,
Batsford, 1995. 222 pp., 184 diagrams. ISBN 0-7134-7721-0. 14.99.

Here we have a rarity. A Batsford chess book written by two active
problemists, one of them (Friedgood) the current British Chess
Solving champion. Of course, both are well-known as strong players,
Jonathan as a Grandmaster and David as a member of the famous
Wood Green Chess Club in London and three times champion of South
Africa.
The blurb on the back cover would lead you to believe that this
is another one of those books full of brilliant combinations written
for practical players who want to improve their combinative vision.
Perhaps on one level it is, but players buying it for this purpose
may well start off being bitterly disappointed, Hopefully they
will read on and get caught up in all kinds of beautiful ideas
that will be new to them. If they do, they will enhance their
knowledge and appreciation of chess. In the introduction, the
authors try hard to convince the sceptical player of the case
for chess composition, and not just as beautiful ideas to look
at. After all, knowing what a Novotny is may well enable the player
to recognise that he has the opportunity to play one!
At its highest level, this book is no less an achievement than
the proposition of a theory of chess aesthetics! Such a thing
has been tried before, but only rarely. Part one gives the background
to beauty in chess, while part two expounds the theory, and both
are liberally sprinkled with well-chosen problems and studies.
Jonathan and David introduce their four elements - paradox, depth,
geometry and flow, and devote a chapter to each. Part three, Sampling
the Spectacular, which is the remainder of the book, is devoted
to examples of spectacular chess classified according to the new
theory. It will come as no surprise to problemists and study enthusiasts
that only one of the four chapters in this last section of the
book includes games!
Of course the book also serves as a thorough introduction to chess
problems and studies for the majority player, and can be read
as such even if the aesthetic theory proves too unpalatable to
some. Even experienced problemists will find that they have much
to enjoy. Those who wish to learn more about studies could do
a lot worse than buy this book. All the studies are annotated
by a Grandmaster player and a top solver, and the cover price
is probably worth this alone!
There is an introduction by Grandmaster John Nunn (another strong
player well-known for his advocacy of problems and studies) explaining
his attraction to the aesthetic in chess. To this end he quotes
both games and studies. His first example is the famous Adams-Torre
affair from New Orleans 1920, probably one of the most quoted
game combinations in the whole of chess literature. Sadly, research
by Dale Brandreth strongly suggests that this game was spurious,
having been made up by Torre. For details see Spurious Games in
The Oxford Companion to Chess by Hooper & Whyld) Hopefully, this
will be the last time that this 'game' is quoted as a game, but
the fact that the first example in the book is another composition
cheers me up!
This book covers more aspects of chess than many other chess books
I have seen. Well done to the authors for producing a very good
chess book, readable on several different levels. It can be read
from beginning to end, but is perfect as a bedside book, to be
dipped into whenever your chess palate is jaded, for certainly
the whole book is a hymn to the beauty of chess! Well done Batsford.
You have been very brave!!

4TH ANNUAL CCLNY "CHESS FOR THE FUN OF IT" RATING TOURNAMENT

The 4th Annual CCLNY "Chess for the Fun of It" Rating Tour-
nament will be held on Wednesday evenings from 2 August
through 30 August 1995.  The venue will be the Con Edison
Building, at 4 Irving Place, New York, NY 10003.

The purpose of this tournament is expressed in its title.
The idea is to play chess for the pleasure of playing chess
and, if possible, to improve one's USCF rating.  Thus, the
entry fee has been kept to $6 and THERE WILL BE NO "CLASS
PRIZES".  However, after expenses (PPHBF, postage, photo-
copying and USCF rating fee), the remainder of the monies
collected will be distributed as prizes (50%, 20%, 15%, 10%
and 5%, for 1st through 5th places).

The time control is game/90.  Rounds will start at 1830
hours (6:30pm).  Half-point byes may be taken each round,
without limit.  However, the Tournament Direct must be noti-
fied of the player's intention by 1700 hours of the day be-
fore the round in which the bye is desired.  (A forfeit
means being dropped from the tournament.)  This is a "No
Smoking" tournament.  It is doubtful that a computer/
software corporation will be interested, but, just for the
record, no computers are allowed.

Advance entries may be made by sending checks to Jerome
Bibuld, 377 Westchester Ave. -- Apt. 5M, Port Chester, NY
10573, or by sending email to capsa@igc.apc.org.  Those who
send email reservations will NOT be paired if they are not
at the playing site by 1815 hours on 2 August.

Please come, if you are in the area.  In the past three
years, we have had legitimate competition for USCF Experts
down through Class Es.
