1962[edit]

The 1962 Women's Championship was a ten-round tournament held from April 21 to May 6 in New York City at the Marshall Chess Club and the Manhattan Chess Club, with the exception of round 8 which was played at the London Terrace chess club. Edward Lasker served as the tournament director. Player invitations were made on the basis of USCF ratings, and the field of eleven included defending champion Lisa Lane, former champions Gisela Kahn Gresser, Mary Bain, and Mona May Karff, and Amateur Champion Greta Fuchs, all from New York City.[3]

Gresser won the title for the fifth time, the second time she won the title unshared. The title was not decided until the final round, when Gresser defeated defending champion Lane playing the White side of a Sicilian Defense. The championship was also the Women's Zonal tournament, so Gresser and Lane qualified to play in the 1963 Women's Candidates Tournament.[4]
