Hastings 1949/50
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 25th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held from December 29th, 1949 to January 7th, 1950. Once again ten chess masters from England, the European continent, and the Americas were invited to participate in the premier event. The notable participants of this edition included former world champion Max Euwe, grandmaster Laszlo Szabo, the winner of the previous year's Hastings premier Nicolas Rossolimo, and chess prodigy from the United States Larry Evans. In spite of the presence of Euwe, who had won his share of Hastings in years passed, and Rossolimo who improved on his previous year's performance, it was Szabo who dominated the field with seven wins to claim victory in the final, his third overall.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Szabo 8/9 * 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

2nd Rossolimo 7/9 * 1 1 1 1 1 1

3rd Euwe 5/9 0 * 1 1 1

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

=5th Horne 4/9 0 * 1 0
