Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Hastings 1960/61
The 36th Hastings Congress featured these players:

Leonard William Barden; Igor Bondarevsky; Bernard Cafferty; Peter Hugh Clarke; Svetozar Gligoric; Arnold Yorvath Green; John Eric Littlewood; Kenneth W Lloyd; Bogdan Sliwa; Laszlo Szabo.

The turning point came in round five. The three GMs (Gligoric, Bondarevsky and Szabo) were tied for first with 3 points, while IM Sliwa was just behind with 2.5. The round saw Bondarevsky drawn by tail-ender Cafferty and Szabo suffer defeat at the hands of Clarke, while Gligoric started a little three-game winning streak at the expense of Sliwa. Soon Gligoric had a full point lead, which he maintained until the end.

  GrahamClayton: Excellent performance by Lloyd to finish top British player, equal with Szabo and ahead of Sliwa in what appears to be his only appearance in an international tournament.
