Hastings 1992/93
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 68th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held from December 28th, 1992 to January 15th, 1993. This year's tournament saw increased sponsorship from the Hastings Borough Council as well as numerous local supporters, ending fears that the ongoing series of events would end. Eight grandmasters were invited to participate in the double round robin event, including (in order of ELO): Evgeny Bareev (2670), Lev Polugaevsky (2640), John Nunn (2595), Jonathan Speelman (2590), Judit Polgár (2575), Matthew Sadler (2515), Ilya Gurevich (2510), and Colin Crouch (2425). The average of the combined ratings of all the players qualified the tournament as a category XIII event. The time control for play was 40 moves in two hours followed by 20 moves in one hour. The final saw seasoned Bareev tied with 16 year old Polgár at 9/14 each. It was Bareev's third consecutive Hastings win, and Polgár's first. The final standings and crosstable are as follows:

1 Polgár 9/14 ** 11 0˝ 1˝ ˝0 1˝ 10 11

2 Bareev 9/14 00 ** 11 ˝˝ 10 1˝ 1˝ 11

3 Speelman 8/14 1˝ 00 ** ˝˝ ˝˝ 1˝ ˝1 1˝

4 Sadler 7/14 0˝ ˝˝ ˝˝ ** ˝1 ˝1 ˝˝ ˝0

5 Nunn 7/14 ˝1 01 ˝˝ ˝0 ** 00 1˝ ˝1

6 Gurevich 7/14 0˝ 0˝ 0˝ ˝0 11 ** ˝1 ˝1

7 Polugaevsky 5.5/14 01 0˝ ˝0 ˝˝ 0˝ ˝0 ** 1˝
