A relaxed competitor, Jonathan Goldfarb took a little time off earlier this week. Immersed in a video game, with his face inches from a television screen, the 10-year-old seemed oblivious to the fact that in a few days he would be seated at a chess board in the grand ballroom of the Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood, Fla., with about 1,000 other youths, competing in the biggest annual chess tournament in America for elementary school-age children.

The Pan Pacific International in San Francisco was won by the legendary Victor Korchnoi of Switzerland. Korchnoi, twice a challenger for the world championship, scored an undefeated 8-3. The 63-year-old grandmaster was by far the oldest player in the field. The 1994 U.S. champion, Boris Gulko of New Jersey, and John Nunn of England tied for second place at 7 1/2-3 1/2. Gulko matched Korchnoi's five wins, but lost a game to Nick de Firmian. Nunn had four wins and no losses.

Wickes Cos. on Thursday sweetened its offer for National Gypsum to $60 a share in cash, but the new proposal confused analysts because it apparently fails to top an existing offer by a management-led group. The investor group headed by National Gypsum Chairman and Chief Executive John P. Hayes has proposed a leveraged buy-out in which shareholders would receive $46 in cash and $28 in notes for each common share of the Dallas building products and services company.

If you build it, they will come. Maytag Corp.--yes, the home of the lonely repairman--was lumbering along a decade ago making me-too appliances that, while reliable, fought constant price wars with rivals and generated sluggish sales and earnings growth. Maytag's lackluster stock told the story. "It was difficult to convince people that they should buy your product over another," recalled Maytag Chairman Leonard Hadley.
