THE CALIFORNIA CHESS REPORTER (Vol. VI No. 8) April 1957
ROSSOLIMO ENTERTAINS SAN FRANCISCO
International Master Nicolas Rossolimo provided an interesting evening for 22 Bay Area chess fans in simultaneous play at Mechanics' Institute, April 27th.
The visitor racked up 14 wins and 6 losses. Two draws included one with 10 year old Freddy Wreden. Rossolimo's play was offhanded, fast and good natured, characteristic of his gracious simultaneous form.
Following his San Francisco show, Nicky engaged in similar exhibitions at Monterey, Los Angeles and San Diego. A unique feature of the Monterey appearance was the broadcast of the Master's match with Expert Al Suchobeck over local radio station KXXL. (ED NOTE: This challenges the imagination!)
