Fine had an exceptionally brief but fruitful international career before changing from grandmaster to psychiatrist. Within three years, 1935-8, he developed from an unknown American master into co-winner of AVRO 1938, one of the highest-rated events ever held. Yet when chess revived after the second World War Fine was too busy with his studies to accept an invitation to the World Championship tournament of 1948. After AVRO 1938. Fine concentrated on writing chess books. Altogether he wrote more than a dozen works. (Golombek: 116p)
