This is the seventh and largest volume in the Chess Results series; with its publication we now have easy access to 6,110 tournament crosstables and 1,725 match scores dating from 1747 to 1950. It can be noted that the decline in matches has been precipitous since 1930.
This compilation contains 980 tournament crosstables and 155 match scores played in men’s competitions from 1947 through 1950. The chronological entries record the first and last names of the players, the location, and even the group that sponsored an event. Published sources are also cited. It is indexed by events and players. If you need a historical reference guide to tournament results, this series is indispensable.
