LLOYD'S BANK, LONDON [from 1981/82 BCF Yearbook, p68 - notes by Stewart Reuben]

25 August - 2 September, 1981 Masters Tournament

The fifth event attracted 7 Grandmasters, 13 International Masters, 10 F.I.D.E. Masters, one Woman Grandmaster, 4 Women Masters, one former World Champion and the current World Cadet Champion. Total entry to this, the strongest so far, was 110 of whom 47 were English.

English GM R. Keene played his first major tournament at 'home' since 1975 and enhanced his reputation with a change of style including some extremely dynamic play. First place had to be decided on total of opponent's scores because Tony Miles and Yasser Seirawan (USA) both recovered from early losses to score 7 points. Eight English players did well in their quest for IM and FM norms.

There was also a tie in the Lady Masters. Sheila Jackson, Gisela Fischdick (W. Germany), Jana Miles and Elisabeta Polihroniade (Rumania) all having 4½ points. Sheila Jackson was placed first on total of opponents' scores.

Junior Invitation, 25-28 August 1981

Date Notes
(previously) Originally 119 games, uploaded as a zip file
6 September 2020 Posted here with additional games from subsidiary events and a complete crosstable. 122 games from the Masters tournament, plus four from simuls given by Smyslov and Kraidman on the day preceding the tournament and a game from the Under-16 competition. A note on the extra three Masters games compared with the earlier upload –Popovych-Dickenson (rd 8), Povah-Freeman (rd 8) and Botterill-Schlenker (rd 9): these were all taken from Big Database 2020. Another two games which Big Database 2020 attributes to this tournament (Basman-Barton and Law-Nunn) must have come from a different event as none of these four players took part in it.
7 September 2020 Big Database 2020 and BritBase had this game down as Kraidman (white) vs Gheorghiu, but Andy Ansel says his record of it shows the colours as Gheorghiu with White. This is much more likely as otherwise Kraidman would have had three whites in the last three rounds. Many thanks to Andy.
11 September 2020 A few textual amendments made following some proof-reading by Paul Georghiou, for which many thanks.
14 September 2020 Added two games played by Paul Georghiou in the Lloyds Bank Junior Invitation event added to the download. Thanks, Paul. I've also taken the opportunity to tidy up the crosstable.
