Abstract

Data of World Championship chess matches and of the personal tournament performances of certain chess masters have been examined from the point of view of the players' ages. The author concludes that these data do not indicate that the mental capabilities of professional chess players are adversely affected by advancing age. Interpretations of the data are suggested and other considerations are mentioned.
