The 88th edition of the Hastings International Congress took place from 28 Dec 2012 - 5 Jan 2013.

The historic town of Hastings on the southern coast of England has hosted chess tournaments for over a century, most famously the 1895 Hastings tournament which is regarded as one of the strongest tournaments ever held.

The main 'Masters' competition was a 10-round Swiss event and Gawain Jones of England finished in first place with an undefeated 7½/10, with eight players just half a point behind.

Jones' crucial victory came in the penultimate round in a hard-fought endgame struggle.
