1983.11.12-12.12. Round Robin 21 rounds. 22 players. Ratings average 2521. Category XI. GM norm 13.5. IM norm 9.5. FM titles: Utut Adianto Wahyuwidayat, Ediwan Ermansyah Miolo.

The 2nd First Lady’s Cup kept the first edition’s trademark intact: a lot of players with a lot of ratings. The number of players was a little less than the first but with a boost in term of ratings. The tournament had a category of XI which was significantly higher than the last year’s IX.

The number 3 and 4 players in the world, GM Ljubomir Ljubojević of Yugoslavia and GM Ulf Andersson of Sweden, were present. GM Yasser Seirawan (USA), GM Jan Timman (Netherlands), and GM Lajos Portisch (Hungary) also joined the party. The three 2600+ GMs belonged to the big 15 in the world. The chess powerhouse USSR, a last year absentee, sent their first string players GM Oleg Romanishin and GM Artur Yusupov. Other notable players included World Champion Candidates GM Eugenio Torre (Philippines) and GM András Adorján (Hungary).

Indonesia picked their representatives with much better grounds than those of the last year. An 18-year-old Utut Adianto was the reigning National Champion. An IM-elect Ronny Gunawan just won the 1983 Asian Circuit 1st Leg in Hong Kong. IM Ardiansyah, IM Edhi Handoko, and Ediwan Miolo played impressively in the last Olympiad held in Lucerne, Switzerland. Ardiansyah registered his first GM norm, Handoko fulfilled the IM title, and Miolo performed about 2400 Elo.

The players, 22 of them, were going to play chess in a month at three cities: Jakarta, Yogyakarta, and Denpasar. The cities were the main destinations in Indonesia.

After finishing round 12 the tournament had been shaped up nicely to show who were still in the contention for the championship trophy. Timman took charge with 10 VP. The Dutch number one had shown a great form right from the early rounds. He bagged 4 consecutive wins in rounds of 4-7. His nearest contender was Ljubojević with 9 VP. Yusupov was half points back from the Yugoslav.

A veteran Portisch might have to settle for a supporting role following his erratic display. He blundered in a winning position against Yusupov in round 1. In round 12 he suffered another blow inflicted by young Indonesian IM Handoko. The same thing could be said to the second seed Andersson. His playing style that tended to grind out his opponents in a long endgame didn’t suit well in such a giant tournament. Another pre-tournament favorite Seirawan was too late to tune in. In the first two rounds he lost to his compatriots GM James Tarjan and GM Ronald Henley. So far he could only score 6 VP out of 12 games.

Timman maintained his lead for the rest of the rounds. Yusupov was the only player who kept shadowing him after Ljubojević’s losses in round 13 and 14. Timman finally ensured his champion title with a round to spare. He defeated Romanishin in round 20 leaving Yusupov no chance to catch him. The USSR player even had to surrender the runner-up position to Portisch. He lost in the last round to West German GM Eric Lobron.

Among the host players only Ronny Gunawan was able to score 50% or more. Indonesian ace Ardiansyah failed to repeat his last year wonderful performance. He started well in the first five rounds by scoring 3.5 VP. Only Timman and Yusupov scored better. Ardiansyah defeated GM Krunoslav Hulak and hard-to-beat-GM Adorján among others. But suddenly he lost …7 times in a row. He woke up in the last 4 rounds but the GM norm had already been beyond his reach.
