Israel Albert Horowitz (1907-1973), better known as I A Horowitz, was a Jewish-American International Master, a Grandmaster by today's standards, but he never got the title. Horowitz won the US Open Championship in 1936, 1938 and 1943. He is the most well-known and respected contemporary chess writers. Most of his books are still in print today and they are highly recommended for students of the game. He was also the founder and publisher of "Chess Review" from 1933 until it was bought and taken over by the US Chess Federation in 1969. The game below is a nice sample of his brilliant play, it features a violent Queen Sacrifice. This is a game of rare brilliancy that will long be remembered. Horowitz produced this gem a long time ago in Philadelphia, during a simultaneous exhibition.

American International Master.
