Hastings 1927/28
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The eighth annual Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1927. The Premier event was a round robin tournament played by ten chess masters from Great Britain and Europe. Among the participants were Victor Berger, Edgar Colle, Hans Kmoch, Reginald Price Michell, George Marshall Norman, Edward G. Sergeant, Lajos Steiner, Savielly Tartakower, George Alan Thomas, and Frederick Yates. Records are scarce on this tournament as even the score of games are incomplete to this day. What information does exist has been used to assemble the existing games in the order found here. We do know Dr. Tartakower eventually won this tournament, his second consecutive Hastings premier (and third overall), but two of his games as well as sixteen others are lost, perhaps forever. From the final standings and results of all the games I have reconstructed the tournament table below.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Tartakower 6/9 * 0 1 1 1 1 1

2nd Steiner 6/9 1 * 0 1 1 1 0 1

=3rd Colle 5/9 * 1 1 1 0

=3rd Berger 5/9 0 1 * 1 1 0 1

5th Yates 5/9 0 0 0 * 1 1 1 1

6th Michell 4/9 0 0 0 * 1 1 1

7th Kmoch 4/9 0 0 0 * 1 1

=8th Thomas 3/9 0 0 0 1 0 0 * 1 1

=8th Sergeant 3/9 0 1 0 0 0 * 1

10th Norman 1/9 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 *
