  GrahamClayton: With 26 players competing, the First Lady Cup was the biggest round robin chess tournament after World War II. Should a player score a GM norm in this tournament they wouldn’t need another norm elsewhere since the tournament had 25 rounds.

  perfidious: In point of fact, Henley got his GM title for this result.
Oct-12-21  pawnpro: Why did they call it the lady's cup
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <pawnpro> It was the First Lady's Cup, named for the then-First Lady of Indonesia, Madame Suharto.

Jul-27-22  Olavi: Should this be the First First Lady's Cup, with First Lady's Cup (1983) the Second First Lady's Cup?
