Summary: A Yugoslav grandmaster, befuddled at a simulatenous blindfold exhibition, flees from a crowd of peasants through a bathroom window. A convicted murderer escapes from the police while being taken to a chess tournament. The wife of Grandmaster Reshevsky causes pandemonium when she insists on interjecting herself into a game with Grandmaster Byrne. Here are the colorful personalities, the scandals, and the great blunders of the champions that make up the chess panorama.
