Section A

Player Score

^Withdrew after fifth round.

This section was generally considered the strongest of the three, so that Hanauer deserves credit for his excellent achievement. Winkel-man's withdrawal after the fourth round ne cessitated the cancellation of his score, which in turn played hob with Santasiere's score (he had beaten Winkelman). It was this consideration which moved the Tournament Committee to admit both Santasiere and Cohen without further ado.
