CHESS: MORE ‘MET’ LEAGUE GAMES
AL HOROWITZMAY 31, 1964

At the London Terrace Club recently, G. Sveikauskas of the home team essayed the King's Indian Defense against Arthur Bisguier of the Man­hattan Club in a “Met” League match.

Both players give reign to their fancies in a razzle‐dazzle of combinations and counters which reach the apex after 14 P‐KB5. Then the possibilities for both sides defy casual analysis in lim‐ited space.

Master ’s Choice

Pertinent is that White dis­plays correct restraint, after 22 … R‐K1. If 23 RxB, there would follow 23 … R‐K8ch; 24 R‐B1, RxRch; 25 QxR, P‐Q6ch; 26K‐R1, RxP. Then White, despite his piece plus, may wind up on the los­ing side .

The text move, 23 Q‐K4, grand master's choice, proves sufficient.
