Hastings 1936/37
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

For the 17th renewal of hostilities at Hastings from December 28, 1936 to January 6, 1937, the organizers brought in a former world champion and a top conteneder for the crown to lead this group of contestants:

Alexander Alekhine, Erich Eliskases, Movsa Feigin, Reuben Fine, Georges Koltanowski, Vera Menchik, George Alan Thomas, Theodore Tylor, Milan Vidmar, William Winter.

Alekhine was set on proving he was not a spent force, and got off to a great start. After 7 rounds, he had 6.5 points and was three points clear of the field--except for Fine, who had won all seven. Their eighth round game was a nerve-wracker, and the more experienced Alekhine was the survivor. He then hung on to his lead when both players drew in the last round despite having good losing chances.
