1913 British Ladies Chess Championship competitors

[BCM 1913, p477] "The triple tie in the Ladies’ Championship tournament, at Cheltenham, was decided in London during the last week in October. Miss Hutchison-Sterling (Edinburgh), after losing to Mrs. R. H. S. Stevenson, retired owing to indisposition. The other competitor was Mrs. Moseley, of Oxford, who secured the first prize and the championship by scoring 1½ points out of two games against Mrs. Stevenson."

[BCM, 1913 p364f]"Amongst the first-class amateurs, G. Wilkes, of London, and N. B. Holmes, of Bury, each scored nine out of eleven, Wilkes being undefeated whilst Holmes did not lose a game until he had made certain of first prize. Both these players may reasonably look for promotion another year. G. W. Douglass, of Sutton Coldfield, and formerly a well-known Leeds player, was out of place in the second class, as was H. G. Scantlebury, of London ; and the same remark applies with even greater force to D. P.Williams, of Brynteg; J. Fish, of Blackburn ; and Owen Stuchbery, of Maidenhead, in the third class.

"The prize winners in the Amateur Tournaments were as under :—

"First Class, Section A. : first, G. Wilkes, London ; second and third, tie between F. R. Adcock, Norwich ; J. Macalister, London ; and O. Tipal, London. Section B. : first, N. B. Holmes, Bury ; second and third, tie between A. Compton Ellis, London ; and W. H. Watts, London. Prizes : £8, £5, £3.

"Second Class, Section A. : first, G. W. Douglass, Sutton Coldfield ; second, H. G. Scantlebury, London ; third, F. U. Beamish, Bristol. Section B. : first and second, tie between A. W. Daniel, Bridgend ; and A. H. Owen, Birmingham; third, W. Penbarthy, Tredegar. Prizes : £5, £3, £2.

"Third Class, Section A. : first, D. P. Williams, Brynteg ; second, J. Fish, Blackburn ; third, S. J. Holloway, London. Section B. : first, Owen Stuchbery, Maidenhead; second, Rev. M. Hooppell, Stoke-on-Trent; third, F. R. Pickering, London. Prizes : £3, £2, £1.

"Handicap Tournament: First, R. H. S. Stevenson, Dartford; second, J. Fish, Blackburn ; third, W. Frost, London ; fourth, G. E. Wainwright, junr., Surbiton ; fifth, Mrs. Holloway, London ; sixth, J. D. Chambers, Glasgow ; seventh, A. Compton-Ellis, London. First Lightning Tournament: First, Rev. F. E. Hamond, Norwich second, W. Gibson, Glasgow ; third, G. Shories, Bradford ; fourth, H. Pinkerton, Bristol. Second Lightning Tourney : First, I. Gunsberg, London ; second and third, divided between G. Shories, Bradford, and E. E. Middleton, junr., Brussels ; fourth, O. C. Muller, London.

"Problem Solving Competition: First, J. W. Dixon, Hanley; second, A. Waterhouse, Manchester ; third, J. Keeble, Norwich. Retractor Problem Solving Competition : First, J. W. Dixon ; second, A. W. Daniel, Bridgend.

"The prizes were distributed to the winners by Mr. T. Whittard, J.P., of Cheltenham, a veteran of ninety-two, who pluckily volunteered to fill a vacancy in the third class, and made an even score. He actually won his first four games off hand, but no doubt found the strain of daily play too exhausting. Presentations were made to Mr. and Mrs. Rees, Miss Bacon, their youthful assistant, Mr. F. G. Perrins, the local secretary, and Mr. R. H. S. Stevenson. Nothing was said officially as to next year’s meeting place, which is due to take place in the North, but the matter is, we believe, under consideration by the Northern Counties Union."
