Chess Informant celebrates 40 years! Happy birthday!

"Playing at tournaments with the leading Soviet chess players I realized that one of the reasons for their absolute supremacy in the world was that they had better information. The powerful Soviet Chess Federation provided them with all the necessary information. What and how their opponents played, what they did or what they did not know, these were no secrets for them. Such conditions were unequal for the rest of us. Thus, something had to be done! The most valuable from all the important competitions in the world had to be selected, systematized and made accessible to chess players. That was how it all started. Chess Informant was to be born in 1966." Grandmaster A.Matanovic
