  Tabanus: Reposted from the Biographer Bistro:

<Paint My Dragon: <Tabanus> Yes, technically Hübner had White and Miles is credited with 6.5 points. Ritson Morry describes this default as "... an incident which cast a cloud over an interesting tournament".

Early in the morning of the last day, Hübner informed the controller that he was unwilling to play at 9:30 am and wanted the start time moving back to 2 pm, as had been the daily routine. He contended that the early start had not been flagged up at the invitation stage. Golombek stated that the programme, given to Hübner at the start of the event, clearly noted the early start time, and that such practice was common. He therefore refused to move Hübner's game to a later start time. After some discussion, neither party would give way and Hübner was told he would be defaulted an hour after 9:30 am, if he did not turn up. He did not, and forfeited the game, and at least £200 in prize money ( - quite a lot, in 1975). Thanks to the full point being awarded to his opponent, Miles won a special prize for the title of best British player.>

That was from William Ritson-Morry in British Chess Magazine, Nov. 1975, pp. 465-479.

Apr-23-16  Oceanlake: For April First: White to Move and Lose.
Feb-23-17  offramp: In almost every tournament I have ever known, the last round is earlier than the others. It must be, because there is a prize-giving, a dinner, and then people have to travel to other places. Normally the start time is 11am, so 9:30am seems early.
