Premium Chessgames Member Does anybody have the full name for this player?
Mar-03-08  Tomlinsky: <CG> I believe this is Cliff Hilton who played in the Manchester area, England. The only reference I can find is from the Eccles Chess Club website...

"B. Cragg was the Champion in 1961 + with Salford Chess Club we played a simultaneous against Cliff Hilton who was at least 220 and one of the best players in the area then. Later he played board 1 for our club for a time."


Premium Chessgames Member Thanks for the research. In the absence of anything else it sounds pretty good.

Maybe GM Keene can confirm, in light of Keene vs C G Hilton, 1965 and C G Hilton vs Keene, 1968.

  Benzol: He used to play at Radcliffe near Manchester in the UK.
Dec-03-15  Nosnibor: Was he related to the Hilton who worked at Bletchley with Turing during ww2? I recall him losing a game in the National Club Championships of 1957 when playing for the Manchester Chess Club he lost on board 2 against Tabakiernik. This was the first year I joined the Leicester Club. The game is given in the 1957 BCM page 198.He also played in the British Championship that year scoring 4/11 and also in earlier years obtaining similar results.

  Tabanus: Arbiting Matters, 8/1996 ( :

<In the early 1980s Clifford Hilton made great strides with a program for the BBC B which we found invaluable during the Benedictine Internationals in Manchester. It did rating and title norm calculations and as soon as the event was over we were able to issue players with full tournament tables containing rating changes. Another of his programs displayed the current pairings and allowed us to input results as they came in and scroll with an up-to-the-minute leader board. I used this at the Oakham Young Masters tournaments in 1990 and 1992. Players and spectators found it very helpful. 13-year-old Peter Swidler playing in his first international event usually managed to anticipate the results and beat the players to the control table so he could enter the details himself. He nearly achieved an IM norm as well! Clifford's tournament rating program was the prototype of the one George Smith the BCF International Rating Officer has developed. When Clifford died suddenly in January 1988, meaningful development of software for chess administration seemed to come to a halt in England.>
