Winter: I consider [Winter v Vidmar, London, 1927] to be my best game partly on account of the eminence of my opponent and partly because of the importance of the occasion on which it was played, and also because on three occasions in which the situation was extremely complicated, I was fortunate enough to discover the only continuation which not only was necessary to secure victory, but to actually save the game. >

"I consider [Winter v Vidmar, London, 1927] to be my best game..."

In his memoirs Winter says it would have better off financially had he drawn or even lost.

He shared the 6th place prize money with Reti. Players below that were classed as non-prize winners who according to Winter were entitled to 'special awards' (no details but those out of the prizes were often paid for wins - if he had not won this he would have finished with 3 wins.)

Winter reckons a loss or a draw would have given him 7.50 more than what he got for splitting 6th place with Reti which today, via an inflation calculator, comes in at around 400.00.

He adds he was aware of this before the game: "...but in the throes of combat a chess player forgets about such things."
