Hastings 1950/51
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 26th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1950. Once more ten chess masters from England and the European continent were invited to participate in the premier event. The notable participants of this edition included Nicolas Rossolimo who had won Hastings once previously and Wolfgang Unzicker from Germany. Though Rossolimo matched his winning score from two years ago it was only good enough this year for shared second with Alberic O'Kelly de Galway. Unzicker edged them both out by half a point at the final, finishing undefeated with +5.
