Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Lone Pine (1981)
11th Louis D Statham Tournament
Lone Pine, California
March 29ľApril 8

The Lone Pine tournament was doing well, but Mr. Louis D Statham was not. Suffering from a degenerative back disease, he was too ill to sponsor the event in 1982 and died the next year. Tournament Director Isaac Kashdan also suffered a debilitating stroke in 1982, so the 1981 edition turned out to be the last in the series.

Perhaps it's just as well that Lone Pine went out strongly, drawing sixty-one players. It was won by Viktor Korchnoi, who put all that silly Swiss Gambit gossip to rest by sprinting to the front and staying there, camping out on board one the entire tournament. Even more significantly, and perhaps the most lasting legacy of the event, was the first sign that the Soviet Union's boycott toward Korchnoi was melting, as Soviet grandmasters Artur Yusupov and Oleg Romanishin participated with Korchnoi in an individual tournament.

Korchnoi won his first three games before drawing with Bent Larsen in round four, but that was a strange round: 20 of the 30 games were drawn. It got so bad that Ian Wells, originally given a bye, later played a makeup game--and drew.

That slip allowed Kamran Shirazi to catch Korchnoi at 3.5, but the grandmaster took care of that little detail in round 5 and was never caught thereafter. Yasser Seirawan gave it a good shot; after a first-round draw he duplicated Korchnoi's results the rest of the way but could never make up that half-point.

The last round saw Korchnoi leading with 6.5, with Seirawan, Gennady Sosonko and Svetozar Gligoric at 6.0. However, the leaders all settled for quick draws, leaving the position at the top undisturbed.

This version of the crosstable allows colors in each game to be determined. If the result (W, L, D) comes first, the player had White. If the result follows the opponent's number, the player had Black. For example, Korchnoi's first three results are win with White vs. #37, win with Black vs. #40, win with White vs. #07.
