Lone Pine Tournaments

400 plus pages in pdf format of games played in these tournaments from 1971 to 1981. No notes. The games are in pgn format, so if you find a game you particularly like you can copy and paste in into an engine for further study.

These Swiss system tournaments were sponsored by Louis D. Statham (1908–1983), millionaire engineer and inventor of medical instruments. I’m not sure how strong Statham was, but he often played in Al Horowitz’ Golden Knight postal tournaments, usually finishing quite well. At one time or another most top U.S. players as well as lesser masters competed against many top foreign GM’s. Players like Korchnoi, Petrosian, Hort, Gligoric and Smyslov participated. Lone Pine
