  whiteshark: The Gossip factory is working overtime.

The major tournament is over... Gossip defeated Tullidge after a very hard fight. Tullidge in the middle of the game won two minor pieces for the rook but in doing so he obtained a very cramped position for the end game. Subsequently, he was compelled to sacrifice a piece for a pawn in order to prevent its queening, and Gossip was afterwards enabled to exchange his rook for a knight, leaving him with the opposition.>

The final score is as follows :- Charlick, 7 ; Esling, 7 ; Gossip, 6 ; Heiman, 6 ; Tullidge and Hall, 4 each ; Crewe, 3 ; Hookham, 3 ; Witton and Eiffe, 2 each.>

The following tabular form gives the details of the play :-


Henry Charlick

(1-1-1--1--1-1-) [+6 =3 -0] (7 / 9) Clear 1st place!

Frederick Karl Esling

(1-1--1-0--1-1-1) [+6 =2 -1] (7 / 9) 2nd

George Hatfeild Gossip

(1-0-1--1-1-1-0-1) [+6 =1 -2] (6 / 9) 3rd

David Heiman

(1-1-0-1-1-1-0-1-0) [+6 =0 -3] (6 / 9) 4th

George B Hall

(0-0-0-1-1-1-0-0-1) [+4 =0 -5] (4 / 9) = 5th

William Tullidge

(0-1-1-0-0-0-1-1-0) [+4 =0 -5] (4 / 9) = 5th

Henry Hookham

(0-1--1-0-0-0-0-) [+2 =2 -5] (3 / 9) = 7th

John E Crewe

(0-0-0-0-0-1-0-1-1) [+3 =0 -6] (3 / 9) = 7th

Joseph George Witton

(0-0-1-0-1-0-0-0-0) [+2 =0 -7] (2 / 9) = last

Patrick Eiffe

(1-0-0-0-0-0-1-0-0) [+2 =0 -7] (2 / 9) = last

<<The first prize therefore falls to Mr Charlick, the second to Mr Esling, the third to Mr Gossip, the fourth to Mr Heiman, while Mr Hall and Mr Tullidge tie for the fifth. They have agreed to divide.>
