Scottish Championship 1921

compiled by Alan McGowan

For the Scottish Chess Association Congress at Easter, there was a good entry for the Scottish Championship, including P. Wenman (Edinburgh), the holder and several past champions, W. Gibson, who won in 1907, 1912 and 1914, J.A. McKee, 1911; C. Wardhaugh, 1915; J. Marshall, 1889.
In the first round Wenman beat Gibson, and appeared likely to repeat his performance of last year, but draws following with McKee, and J. Gilchrist, the City of London player, brought him back to the field. Gibson won all his remaining games, but in the last round, Wenman after a hard struggle with Marshall, was finally outplayed by the veteran, who won and thereby tied for third place, and W. Gibson gained the title of champion of Scotland for the fourth time.
