Moscow, U.S.S.R.: Samuel Reshevsry, (left) of Spring Valley, New York and Mikhail Botvinnik, of the Soviet Union, are shown during the first round of the Soviet-American chess tournament in Moscow. The Russian players took a point lead of 3 1/2 to 1/2 midway through the first round. Reshevsky prevented a shutout by matching Russia's world champion at the 41st move before adjourning until tomorrow. The match is set for four rounds on eight boards with each player meeting the same opponent four times. A point is awarded for each triumph and a half point for a stalemate. The games are being played in the Hall of Columns in the House of Trade Unions.
