  GrahamClayton: The only ICCF World Correspondence Championship not to feature preliminary groups, leading to what was probably the weakest field ever to take part in an ICCF WC Finals tournament.

  Sally Simpson: The final placing's at the top of the thread are all out of place with Curtis Garner appearing top with 0 wins from 8.

Curtis started off with a bit of a nightmare

Curtis Evander Garner vs P Dubinin, 1959

Simply dropping a piece. I wonder if he got mixed up with the correspondence notation. writing 18.3324 instead of 3322.

When I played international postal chess in the 70's I hated that system.

1.e4 = 1.5254.

  morfishine: <Sally Simpson> According to the tournament write-up Garner withdrew: *Garner withdrew and all his games were awarded to his opponents. For the game Garner - Napolitano 0-1 the gamescore was unavailable. According to Napolitano, few moves were played before Garner withdrew from the tournament. But you are correct, Garner should've been listed at the bottom, or not at all for withdrawing

Perhaps the Dubinin fiasco had something to do with his withdrawal
