About the Author:

Reuben Fine was both one of the world's strongest grandmasters of chess and one of the world's leading authorities on psychoanalysis. Reuben Fine (1914-1993) was remarkable not merely for having two successful careers, but for achieving top levels and being world renowned in both fields. Fine took up chess in his youth, became a master as a teenager and at age 17 won his first of seven US Open Chess Championships. He was invited to the great masters tournament in Pasadena 1932, won by World Champion Alekhine, one of the strongest tournaments ever held in the United States. Fine's victories in a series of European tournaments in 1936 and 1937 established Fine as a top contender for the World Chess Championship. This led to his greatest result ever, his tie for first in the strongest chess tournament ever played, AVRO 1938, a double round-robin tournament to determine who would be the next challenger to World Champion Alexander Alekhine. Fine tied with Paul Keres, won more games than anybody, and finished ahead of future champion Mikhail Botvinnik, current champion Alekhine, former world champions Max Euwe and Capablanca, and Grandmasters Samuel Reshevsky and Salo Flohr. Fine won both of his games against Alekhine. AVRO 1938 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 Fine ** 0 1 10 10 11 1 8 2 Keres 1 ** 1 1 8 3 Botvinnik 0 ** 0 1 1 1 7 4 Euwe 01 1 ** 0 0 01 1 7 5 Reshevsky 01 0 0 1 ** 1 7 6 Alekhine 00 0 1 ** 1 1 7 7 Capablanca 0 0 10 0 ** 1 6 8 Flohr 0 0 0 0 0 ** 4 Note that Keres played easy draws, winning only three games and drawing the rest, whereas Fine won six games, lost three and drew only five games. Fine was born on October 11, 1914 was still only 23 at the time of his victory at AVRO 1938. There is little doubt that he could have and probably would have become the World Chess Champion, except that World War II intervened. During the war, Fine could not travel to Europe, so he concentrated on writing chess books. His books covered all aspects of the game. He wrote Modern Chess Openings, Basic Chess Endings and The Middle Game of Chess during this period. He also played in several US Opens and US Championships. He won the US Open seven times, which was every time he played. However, somehow he could never win the US Championship, usually finishing second to Reshevsky.
