  1. 13th US Championship Tournament, 1960-1961
    [Work in Progress]
    This tournament marked Bobby Fischer's fourth straight title as US Champion. It was also a zonal tournament.

    Not all games from this tournament are currently available, and only 15 of the 66 games are on the Chessgames Home Page database as of today (April 20, 2008): all of Fischer's games, plus four others.

    The twelve players and their USCF ratings according to the December 1960 supplement:

    1. Robert James Fischer 2641 2. Samuel Reshevsky 2632 3. William James Lombardy 2555 4. Robert Eugene Byrne 2535 5. Pal Benko 2501 6. Arthur Bisguier 2501 7. Raymond Allen Weinstein 2448 8. Herbert Seidman 2417 9. Anthony Saidy 2412 10. James T Sherwin 2411 11. Hans Berliner 2406 and 12. Charles I Kalme 2374

    Today (April 20, 2008) I uploaded Benko-Bisguier from Round 5 (0-1) and Bisguier-Kalme from Round 9 (1-0). These two games were in the book <The Art of Bisguier>.

  2. 17th USSR Championship - Bronstein's Momentum
    19 games, 1949

  3. 6th USA Championship Tournament, New York 1946
    Samuel Reshevsky won this tournament, his fifth victory in five tries (He missed the 1944 US Championship)!

    Twenty players participated, but Lewis J Isaacs withdrew before 50% of the rounds were played and his results were not counted in the final standings.

    Many games need to be uploaded. Today (April 27, 2008) I uploaded Horowitz-Rothman from round eight (1-0).

  14. Chess a la Torte: Games of Vladimir Alatortsev
    Vladimir Alatortsev (1909-1987) was one of the best Soviet players during the 1930's and 1940's. However, he was overshadowed in nearly every event by Botvinnik, and his games have not been given much attention.

    After World War II, Alatortsev decreased his participation in tournaments, and turned his focus on training, particularly with future World Champion Smyslov. In subsequent years, he became involved with administration as well and he served as president of the USSR Chess Federation.
