1973 US open (suppl games) / Dec Invitational
Compiled by gauer
--*--

under construction

Two Chicago tournaments of games that had been needed to be sorted out at one point for the year.

The remaining 6 of 18 games (and maybe as many as 1 or 2 others to sort out: Biographer Bistro thanks for replying...) look like they are the Chicago Invitational, and not the USA open, 1973 that 2 or more Canadians (Vranesic from U of Toronto wouldn't have been too far from the windy city, Suttles from UBC would've had more of a distance to travel...) may have attended that year. I have no idea whether one or both players would've played both events, unless this <Invitational> was also held as some sort of qualifier that year for some continental event or perhaps an Olympiad selection within Canadian ratings lists, etc.

1 Norman Weinstein 8.0/11 2 Gudmundur Sigurjonsson 7.5/11 3 Nikola Karaklajic 7.0/11 4 James Tarjan 7.0/11 5 Andrew Soltis 5.5/11 6 Kim Commons 5.5/11 7 Zvonko Vransevic 5.5/11 8 Craig Chellstorp 5.0/11 9 Greg DeFotis 5.0/11 10 Lawrence Kaufman 4.0/11 11 Andrew Karklins 3.5/11 12 Duncan Suttles 3.5/11

Held at Chicago in the end of November (28th) until December (9th, according to David Moody's Chess Life and Review link posted in a spring 1974 issue (unchecked yet be me as of Nov 9, 2017) - page 157, March).

In contrast to:

(1) J Manetta vs Suttles, 1973 5th round, month of August - according to its pgn - https://chesstempo.com/gamedb/game/... also has a similar pgn;

(2) Suttles vs B Diesen, 1973 4th round, month of August - according to its pgn;

(3) G S DeFotis vs L Day, 1973 10th round, month of August - according to its pgn;

(4) Suttles vs Lombardy, 1973 10th round, month of August - according to its pgn;

(5) E B Meyer vs B Diesen, 1973 9th round, no month marked - according to its pgn;

(6) Tarjan vs Suttles, 1973 may also now look like Chicago Invitational, according to its pgn: round 8; December.
