Dresden 1956 was held in the East German city of Dresden from February 26-March 21, 1956, and featured this cast of characters: Borge Andersen, Yuri Averbakh, Istvan Bilek, Victor Ciocaltea, Sieghart Dittmann, Reinhart Fuchs, Werner Golz, Ratmir Kholmov, Siegfried Muehlberg, Ludek Pachman, Nikola Padevsky, Jan Sefc, Bogdan Sliwa, Olof Sterner, Mihailo Trajkovic, Wolfgang Uhlmann. The tournament gave some promising new faces from behind the Iron Curtain a chance at some first-class competition. Averbakh and Kholmov, taking a little break from the rigors of playing in the Soviet Union, celebrated their vacation by dominating the tournament. Ciocaltea stayed in the running much of the way, but fell behind by drawing his last four games. Using the estimated ratings from Chessmetrics, the tournament had an average rating of 2466 (Category 9).


Pages age toned, book plate of Arne Bergren else a very good set.
