While most of you were either cooped up studying in air-conditioned Lamont or chasing females around the City, some hardy souls were braving the summer heat to play in various Summer School tournaments. Here are the winners.
John Edwin Atwood and Heidi Pafford Prizes, listed in parentheses, are awarded on the basis of the number of people participating in a particular event as well as the number of rounds in the event. Hence Men's singles with 6 rounds and 63 participants receives the largest awards: women's doubles with 3 rounds and 10 teams receives the smallest.
Final scores give the per cent of the total number of points possible which were earned in the individual's or team's four best performances of the six tournament sessions.
The chess tournament was played in five rounds. The Swiss system was used whereby players are matched in each round to opponents who have the same records in previous rounds. The winner of the first place prize was Sandy Zabell who won all five of his matches. Herbert Kirst won the second place prize of $5, winning four of his five matches. In a four-way tie for third place were Clark Slemon, Julio Burunat, Chuck Scappaticci, and Jonathan Gray.
