THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF NEW SOUTH WALES.>

The ninth round opened last night at the Sydney School of Arts Chess Club.>

Christenson v. Miles (Queen's Gambit) - Mr. Miles played a splendid game and won a well deserved victory.>

(a) 12.Rxc3

PxKt (bxc3) is best.

Both sides have model development at this stage.

The weakness of White’s next move, to which most of what follows is due, speedily becomes apparent.

(b) 13.Bb1

BK2 (Be2) saves the valuable Queen’s Pawn.

(c) 16...f4

After this White cannot save the game.

This is one of the gems of the tourney, and Mr. Miles is to be congratulated on his brilliant play.>

- Sydney Morning Herald (NSW), Tuesday 6 August 1901, page 6>

Miles finished the tournament equal 4th with a score of 5/9

Christenson finished 7th on 4½/9

The championship was won by Julius Leigh Jacobsen
