Agency International (Lonson `997)
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

The tournament was held May 26 - June 1, 1997, in celebration of the centenary of the first women's international tournament. With a line-up of five men and five women, it was a Category 6 event with an average rating of 2372, so an IM norm could be obtained with a score of 5.5/9.

The closely matched field led to a tight race ending in a tirple tie for first between Dunnington, McShane, and Kachiani-Gersinska, with Forster and Stefanove just one-half point behind.
