Hastings 1973/74
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 49th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1973. Sixteen grandmasters and masters were invited to compete in a round robin format at the premier event. The notable participants of this edition included former world champion Mikhail Tal, former Hastings winners Svetozar Gligoric and Laszlo Szabo, Soviet Grandmaster Gennadi Kuzmin, and a 22 year old Dutch master, named Jan Timman, seeking his second grandmaster norm. In the two years since the playing field had increased for the tournament's format a larger display of talent and styles was being exhibited at Hastings, and this year was no exception. In addition to the aggressive and tactical displays of Tal and Timman, there were also more offbeat playing styles represented in the guise of British masters Michael Basman and Anthony Miles, and Canadian grandmaster Duncan Suttles. The final of the event saw a four way tie for first place among Kuzmin, Szabo, Tal, and Timman, who earned his second GM norm. Five time Hastings winner Gligoric trailed the leaders by half a point for clear fifth place.
