1st Burroughs Computers Grandmasters Tt
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by 1st Burroughs Computers Grandmaster (1978)

This tournament played in New Zealand was the second leg of the Asian Grandmasters circuit. The circuit was the brain-child of then FIDE Deputy President Florencio Campomanes to help Asian area players gain experience and title norms. The first leg was held in Baguio City in the Philippines, the third leg in Jakarta, Indonesia and the fourth leg was hosted in Penang, Malaysia. Australia was originally given the option of hosting the second leg but when this lapsed the New Zealand Chess Association gave Murray Chandler the green light to organize the tournament in Wellington. Months were spent by Chandler and his assistant Jenny McLaren in raising funds, arranging players' accommodation and finding both the playing venue and the personnel to run the tournament. The sponsorship problem was solved when Burroughs Computers agreed to very generously contribute towards the tournament expenses. The tournament was suppose to feature grandmasters Eugenio Torre , Miguel A Quinteros and Alberic O'Kelly de Galway. However, the last named player failed to arrive. Running from the 5th to the 19th of April 1978 it was held in the World Trade Centre in Wellington.
