Scenes From The Interzonal

Big time international chess returned to the Philippine scene after an absence of more than a decade with the holding of the 1990 InterzonalChampion-ship in Manila. 64 of the world's strongest players, survivors of a gruelling 3-year series of qualifying tournaments, took part in the 3-week tournament which kicked off on June 29.
