Introduction by Stewart Reuben

For all sponsored events, publicity is very much the name of the game. Thus the Lloyds Bank Women's Bus Tournament on Thursday 15 August [1991]. Playing on the top of a bus - what about if it rained? I don't permit poor weather at my chess events. Thus, only one day's poor weather in Eastbourne and a blazing hot day last Thursday. Once started, the players hardly seemed to notice they were travelling around London and got down to the hard work of trying to win the tournament. We had a small press conference before setting off where Cathy Forbes explained that female chess in England needs a higher profile and that the Lloyds Masters helped develop the women's game in the best way because the sexes played chess together equally. The event can be counted successful because there was a picture in the following day's Times and two radio reports. Oh, you want to know the actual results?

1 Alisa Maric 3/3: 2-4 Mirjana Maric, Sheila Jackson. Susan Arkell 2½/3 and 21 people played altogether.

The following day, The Times again came up trumps with a front page picture of Harriet and Adam Hunt, joint British Under 14 Champions, 'practising' for the Masters. The fact that Adam has gone to Scotland to play golf is irrelevant. Then The Observer went for Peter Leko. We expected the news about Gorbachev not only to upset our Soviet visitors but also to submerge any chess news. In fact, ITN used footage of the congress on News at Ten to explain the reaction of ordinary citizens to the news. Whether their total score of 14/21 for the Soviets was good or bad, is another matter. It is becoming more and more difficult to use the collective noun 'Soviet', particularly for players from the Baltic States. You will have noticed that none of this excellent publicity is about real chess results. These usually don't interest the media. What they want is gossip and the unusual. Thus a chess event must create a number of publicity hooks, some of which will strike lucky and haul in the media. 15 Lloyds Bank Masters demonstrates the success of this endeavour. For the last four years we have also been fortunate in having the services of Peter Rundle, a professional publicity consultant.

241 players from 27 countries, including 19 gms 2 wgms, 28 ims and 9 ims are taking part in the event with about two-thirds of the contestants having international ratings. This is the largest number we have ever had - just. It is also much the strongest. Part of the growth has been due to the greater ease of travel, particularly the Soviets. Whether the new regime will become more restrictive remains to be seen.

The first few rounds are mainly concerned with sweeping aside the weaker players. Thus one cannot expect many dramatic results. However the strength of the event can be gauged from the fact that Speelman had to play two gms in the first three rounds. Most Swisses feature a large number of games full of thud and blunder, a substantial number of wins by a process of slow attrition and a few good games. With nearly 1,200 games from which to choose, you should be in for a good haul with this bulletin.

Date Notes
13 July 2021 205 games posted on BritBase for the first time. Games sourced in the main from ChessBase, with quite a number of amendments made to those games. Plus games played and submitted by Tony Corkett, for which many thanks. I've laboured a considerable time over the crosstable which was so poorly rendered in the bulletin that OCR scanning simply wouldn't work. It also has a number of errors, which seems strange as it appears to be computer-generated (so how can reference numbers be out of sync?). I've no doubt more errors are there to be found.
