Adsteam-Lidums International Chess Tournament, incorporating the Australian Open Championship, Adelaide, South Australia, 28th December 1986 to 10th January 1987

Chess stars in Adelaide tournament

ADELAIDE: Some of the world's leading chess players, including nine grand masters, have gathered in Adelaide for the Adsteam-Lidums international chess tournament.

As well as international experts from 16 countries, about 250 Australians will compete in the two-week tournament, which includes the Australian Open championship.

The highest-ranked player in the tournament is Hungarian Mr Gyula Sax, who plays second on his country's national team, the team considered the second strongest in the world behind the Soviet Union.

Mr Sax, 35, became a grand master in 1974 and first won the Hungarian national title in 1976.

Ranked just below Mr Sax is Britain's Mr Tony Miles, 31, who became a grand master at 20 and who has since won a host of international tournaments around the world.

Other grand masters to compete in the Adelaide event include Latvian-born Mr Edmar Mednis from the United States, Mr Carlos Palermo of Argentina, Ms Elisabeta Polihroniade of Romania, Australia's first grand master Mr Ian Rogers, Mr Eugenio Torre of the Philippines, Mr Stefan Djuric of Yugoslavia and Mr Eric Lobron of West Germany.

Heading the lower-ranked players expected to perform well is another Hungarian, Ms Susan Polgar, who, at 17 and an international master, is the highest-ranked woman in the world.

Competing with her will be her sisters Sophie, 11 and Judith, 10, both considered to be future champions.

Matches will continue until January 10 at two venues.
