Hastings 1929/30
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The tenth Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1929. Once again ten chess masters from England, the European continent, and the Americas were invited to participate in the round robin event. The notable participants of this edition included Jose Capablanca, Geza Maróczy, and Milan Vidmar. Capablanca won in fine fashion, finishing undefeated with 4 wins and 5 draws. 20 incomplete or lost games are missing from this collection and the database. The results of each encounter do survive, however, and thus allow for the final standings and crosstable to be reconstructed below:

1st Capablanca 6˝/9 * ˝ ˝ 1 ˝ ˝ 1 ˝ 1 1

2nd Vidmar 5˝/9 ˝ * ˝ ˝ ˝ ˝ 1 1 ˝ ˝
