Mr. Bonar Law, M.P., opened the International Chess Congress in the Central Hall, Westminster, this being the first tourney of its kind held in England for 23 years.

Capablanca, Alechin, Rubinstein, Tartakover, Maroczy, Atkins and Yates are playing. C. G. Watson (Australia) and J. S. Morrison (Canada) represent the Dominions.

Play was opened to-day, when Capablanca (the world's champion) defeated M. Euwe (Holland) in 38 moves. C. Watson (champion of Australia) was pitted against F. D. Yates (the British champion), and replied to the Ruy Lopez with the Steinitz defence. At the call of time the game was unfinished.

  keypusher: I have the tournament book (which is none too good). Capablanca just seems to be in a different class than everyone else.

  MissScarlett: Falkirk Herald, November 1st 1922, p.3:

<British Chess Federation: The annual meeting of the Council was held at the City of London Chess Club by the kind invitation of the Club Committee on Saturday, October 21st, when Canon A. G. Gordon Ross presided over a representative gathering. [...] The London International was fully dealt with, and in this connection it was announced that Captain Erskine Bolst’s, M.P., brilliancy prize of £2O had been awarded to Herr Reti for his game against Mr Snosko-Borowski [ Reti vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1922 ], and Mr Christopher Ogle's second prize of £15 to Dr Vidmar for his game against Mr F. D. Yates. [ Vidmar vs Yates, 1922 ]>

Christopher Ogle is the reputed source for one of the game's most enduring anecdotes: C.N. 6956
