Hastings 1924/25
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 5th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was unlike previous events at the chess club because on this occasion sixteen chess masters and amateurs were split into two sections, "A" and "B." Among the participants were P.D. Bolland, Edgar Colle, Leslie Charles Gwyn Dewing, Arthur John Mackenzie, Geza Maróczy, Reginald Price Michell, George Marshall Norman, Hubert Ernest Price, David Przepiorka, Harold Saunders, Jacob Adolf Seitz, Edward G Sergeant, Endre Steiner, Lajos Steiner, Savielly Tartakower, and Frederick Dewhurst Yates. The A section saw Maróczy dominate the field. He went undefeated with 6.5/7, a full point ahead of second place Yates. The B section saw a three-way tie for first amongst Przepiorka, Steiner, and Tartakower. A playoff was devised for the top six finishers, with Maróczy drawing Tartakower in their game, Przepiorka defeating Seitz, and Yates winning with the black pieces against Endre Steiner. In the end, Maróczy was clear winner of the Hastings festival, the first and only time he would be so.

1st Maróczy 6½/7 * 1 ½ 1 1 1 1 1
