Section B

Player Score

In my opinion, this was really the strongest section, so that Bernstein's score is really the outstanding one of all three groups. The feat of Suesman, a 19-year-old youngster, in gaining a place ahead of experienced veterans, gave everyone real pleasure. It remains to be added that his place was earned by fine chess, and not by luck. Willman's failure to qualify was the most disappointing feature of this group.
