Hastings 1946/47
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

The 22nd Hastings Christmas Congress, held December 30, 1946 through January 8, 1947 marked a return to the traditional 10-player tournament of about half British players and half foreign masters. This year's contingent included:

Gerald Abrahams, James Macrae Aitken, Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, Harry Golombek Gudmundur S Gudmundsson, Lodewijk Prins, Maurice Raizman, Savielly Tartakower, Gabriel Wood, Daniel Abraham Yanofsky.

What wasn't traditional was that a British player won, as Alexander blew away the opposition and clinched first place before a last round loss to Tartakower. Admittedly this was hardly a powerful contingent, but Alexander proved capable of more than holding his own in several stronger Hastings Congresses.
