<Talk story about a chess match between Samuel Reshevsky and Pal Benko, both Grand Masters, at the Manhattan Chess Club, on W. 64 St. Permission to watch was granted by Hans Kmoch, secretary of the club. The winner was to get a prize known as the George P. Edgar Trophy, which is a silver cup presented by a local stockbroker and chess player. The trophy is to pass from winner to winner each year. There is to be a prize of $1,000 to the winner and $500 to the runner-up, both sums from Mr. Edgar. In the inaugural match, Reshevsky won 3 games, Benko won one, & there were three draws. Benko, who is 32, became a Grand Master 5 years ago, he is a clerk in Wall Street. He was captain of a Hungarian chess team that journeyed to Iceland in 1957 to play a match, and as soon as the match was over he defected to this country. Writer asked Benko if he ever resorted to psychological ploys to help win a match. He said a Grand Master who employed such tactics wasn't worth a pawn. This particular match [sic - game is meant] ended in a draw. A couple of days later Kmoch called to say that this series had been won by Reshevsky.>
