Hastings 1930/31
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 11th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1930. 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, Max Euwe, and Mir Sultan Khan. Dutch master Euwe won in surprising combative fashion, finishing undefeated with 6 wins and 2 draws, dropping only one game. He edged out multiple Hastings winner and former world champion Capablanca by half a point. 13 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 Euwe 7/9 * 1 1 1 1 1 0 1

2nd Capablanca 6/9 * 0 1 1 1 1 1

3rd Sultan Khan 6/9 0 1 * 1 1 0 1 1

4th Michell 5/9 0 0 * 1 1 0 1 1

5th Yates 4/9 0 0 0 * 1 1 1

6th Thomas 4/9 0 0 0 * 1 1 0 1

7th Winter 3/9 0 0 1 0 0 * 1

=8th Tylor 3/9 0 0 1 0 0 *
