2 'Who wonl' BRAZEN NEWCOMER The chess world has a new world champion . Tal 's final victory over Botvinnik did not come as a surprise. After a few games in the match it became clear that Botvinnik was facing an extremely difficult if not hopeless task. After seven games he was already three points behind. He was unable to recover from this catastrophic start. Although Tal dropped a stitch twice in a row - because of his own carelessness rather than his opponent's skill - he was never in any real dan­ ger.

The game had been adopted in Europe by then, but it seems indications of blindfold chess ha ve not been found there . Until it was reintroduced by Philidor. More than a century later, Pillsbury played six blindfold games simulta­ neously . Reti managed twenty-two. Alekhine thirty-two. After the war, in 1 945, Naj dorf played forty-five games in Rio de Janeiro. It took him twenty-four hours a nd he refused to repeat the exhibition . Flesch has set the record at fifty-two n ow. He said he needed fifteen hours and claimed he might have managed sixty ga mes.

It is said that of all grandmasters at the time Nimzowitsch was the one that Alekhine feared most. During that same period, Nimzowitsch wrote his two books: Mein System and Die Praxis meines Systems. These two books contain the best that has ever been written about chess. Personally, I don 't care much for theoretical disquisitions on chess strategy, as may still get into print to­ day . Only Nimzowitsch managed to say anything sensible about the subject. It is, I think, the method of his teaching that makes it so eminently readable.
